Make Your Own Small Pet Food Mix

imageAs some of you might already know, we are the proud parents to three really cute ratty babies. Rats are not the most common pets to own and I think that this is part of the reason that their food is $15 a bag if you buy the special rat food mix at the pet store. Since we have owned our rats, we have done a little research on what they can and can’t eat. We have also acquired through various means some various foods that we can feed them.

We had-

– Dog food- one pet store told us to feed them this

– Rabbit food- I got a great deal on it

– Squirrel food- a friend gave it to me

– Whole wheat organic cheerios- aka people food that we didn’t like but they love

So I decided to mix them all together to make a rat food mix that actually doesn’t look too different from what they sell at the pet store for a lot less than $15 and they love it. I should also mention that we feed our rats a large variety of fruit and vegetable that we are also eating. Our little rats eat a lot better than people in some third world countries.

  1. Another great idea! I would say what you made was a lot less than 15 dollars.Keep up the good ideas. Your site is awesome!

  2. I can’t believe I’m saying this lol…but your rats are cute. You are probably doing your pets a favor by making their food. You are saving money while they get a more varied and nutritious diet.

      Thanks! They are fairly inexpensive pets unless you buy the $15 food and we have a lot of fun with them!
