Good Morning Ratanoogians!

 

I hope you are all enjoying Woman's day and have a good one.  :D

 

I need some advice please?

 

I am having trouble finding the Bokomo puffed wheat original cereal in Worcester. Only a Shoprite near me sells it and they have been out of stock for a while.

 

What can I use as a alternative for the cereal? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Maybe consider rather ordering food from PTA/Mischief or Snuggarat. It's inexpensive and the rats thrive  on it. I feed my entire rattery on it and can easily afford the 10kg or so it costs to keep them going, I am sure you won't need that much though! :P

I would also like to have some guidance on this. My rats really like the Ratanooga Mix and eat it better than other foods. They tend to leave the smaller seeds in the other mixes I've ordered (includings Snuggarat) but like the puffed rice and wheat in the RN mix and eat it all. I bought some puffed millet recently and am thinking about subbing it in for the wheat next time I make some RN mix.

I don't know what all ingredients the RN mix has.... but the puffed rice we use in the PTA Mix one can buy at Dischem or Clicks...

You have to force them to eat the grains. Rats can have lean periods until the eat the grains.

You can replace the puffed wheat with another wheat cereal. Look for the lowest salt and sugar content (puffed wheat has no added salt or sugar).
