If you’re like most people you probably have a pet rat or two. And like most people you probably have a pet hamster as well. But what if you’re considering getting rid of one of your pets? Can rats and hamsters live together?
The answer is yes but there are a few things you need to know before you put them in the same cage.
First rats are much larger than hamsters so they will need a larger cage. Second rats are very active and need a lot of space to run around. Third rats are very curious and will want to explore everything in their cage including the hamster’s food.
So if you’re going to put a rat and a hamster together make sure the cage is large enough for both of them and that there is plenty of food and water for both of them.
Can rats eat hamster food?
No rats cannot eat hamster food.
