Review: How to Keep Your Rat's Cage Smelling Fresh with ZYMOX® Cage Diapers®

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

Rats Make Me Boggle


We have set up a t-shirt fundraiser over on Bonfire to help us raise enough money to attend the Pet Partners Conference in San Antonio, Texas! We want to raise at least 1k to cover expenses so that I can go and increase my knowledge about therapy animals (and represent the little guys) so I can do even more here in Georgia.

We ended up having to take care of other expenses and just wasn't getting enough traction with t-shirt sales. The shirt is still available to purchase though!
