Anyone else that has rats if you have an idea on how else to entertain them I would love some ideas.
I have given wheels, tubes, chewy things, a kind of climbing toy, and the big boy enjoys a hammock... not sure what else to look for. Again any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
When I worked at a pet store, the owner told me we were getting a few baby rats
in for snake chow. When they came in three of them were running around and
one was so young it wouldn't of made it over the long weekend. I took it home
with me and fed it baby formula. I had no idea how to keep this baby alive.
Well it lived and I was totally attched to him. Needless to say I kept him.
He was so cool. I played with him all the time. He loved playing with my
hand. I would put my hand under some bedding and he would jump and grab it
gently. He would run up my arms, sit on my shoulders and play hide & seek
in my hair. I would buy him dog toys to play with when I wasn't home. I think
like birds, chewing is playing to them. He like to hide in old washclothes to.
He would drag them around. He also liked ice cubes, cat balls and and my socks
to play with. Good luck with your rat. They make terrific pets. Just a note:
I talked my boss out of getting baby rats for snakes anymore after he saw just
how lovable rats are. They are amazingly smart too!
