Rats are incredibly intelligent and lovable pets, which is why as a first time owner you're going to want to ensure you and your new pet get off to the best possible start. Our First Rat Starter Kit is full of helpful supplies, including soft, cosy bedding, yummy chews and rat food, and even a care sheet; which will tell you all of the things that you need to know about how to look after your pet rat.
In addition to these pet supplies, our rat start kit also contains a clear water bottle that can be hung on the outside of a rat cage, a sturdy ceramic food bowl, and a spray-bottle of multipurpose disinfectant that can be used to safely clean your pet's home when it becomes dirty. This supply kit also contains a large bag of cat litter, as sawdust and other common small animal litters can be very harmful to rats. The reason for this is that most small animal litters contain dust that tend to cause or exacerbate respiratory problems.
Our First Rat Starter Kit includes:
Please Note: The HappyPet multipurpose disinfectant is safe to use on all dog, cat, bird and small animal housing.
