If you like David Lynch and/or are interested in reading some of my critical work, here’s a tap essay I did for my class on Lynch.
Help? I found these scratches along my rat’s back! (From between the shoulder blades to in between the front of her hind legs) effyeahpetrats Do you know what could be causing it? (Sorry for the bad pictures, they were hard to take)
Sorry for the late reply, I only just saw this in the notifications!
Has she got a cage mate that could be grooming her too hard? If so I would suggest keeping them seperate when you can’t supervise them for a week so that she has time to heal.
It also could’ve started as an itch that she scratched too hard and then as it was healing kept scratching so it got bigger. It also could be mites! Are there scabs? If so, take her to the vet and she can get a couple of shots to help clear it up (also you can’t catch the mites so you can still handle her like normal ^.^)
Does anyone else have any suggestions about what this could be??
My old boy Belial had scabs like these all over him. My roommate got him off Craigslist from a family with boys who had lost interest in him and had neglected him as a result. We ended up finding out that he had lice, which look almost like bits of dirt in the fur. Be on the lookout for any thin, reddish-brown bugs moving around in her fur. Belial’s weren’t apparent until I was giving him some good behind-the-ear scratches one day, and they all just came to the surface of his fur. Good luck, and I hope your sweet baby love feels better!

She’s so lucky, she’s a star
But she cry, cry, cries in her lonely heart, thinking
If there’s nothing missing in my life
Then why do these tears come at night
Bloody sculptures by Jessica Harrison
Born in St Bees in 1982, Jessica Harrison moved to Scotland to study sculpture at Edinburgh College of Art in 2000, going on to do an MFA before completing a practice-led PhD in sculpture in 2013 funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
Her research considers the relationship between interior and exterior spaces of the body, but looks neither inwards towards a hidden core, nor outwards from the subconscious, instead looking orthogonally across the skin to the movement of the body itself, using the surface of the body as a mode of both looking and thinking.
