2020: Cancer & Causes, Passings & Pride

2020 was really something! As always, thank you to those who follow us on social media: FacebookTwitterInstagramTumblr. For most of all of 2020, I was working part-time and then full-time so we were less involved with things, but here is everything that happened in the world of Healing Whiskers during 2020...

There are many different options when it comes to the bedding you use in your rat's cage. There's fabric, paper, wood, and even soil in bioactive cages. It can be a struggle to find bedding that helps with odor but isn't messy. For me, I personally use fleece with towels underneath which I toss in the laundry. I do this every week and spot clean and/or replace fleece every day. It's not perfect and get's smelly super quick.

I was recently approached by ZYMOX® to take a look at their new product the Cage Diaper®. I know, silly name, but it is actually quite a great product!

Summer 2019: Rainbows, Reading, & Rescue

Vincent the Therapy Rat

This summer has been CRAZY! From going on TV, radio, being featured in newspapers, magazines, and online articles, to finishing up our Reading Rats program, and even rescuing a pet rat in distress!
Time for another (somewhat) seasonal blog post! I'm working to get this website more informational, but life has been hectic. Feel free to follow us on social media for more up-to-date posts: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr
