hey, i got 2 male rats for a month now. They are young, born on 7 aug. when i pick him out of the case and put him on my shoulder, he goes for a trip on my back en want to jump in his case. and actually, i don’t know what kind of sweets they like so i can train them. maybe they just don’t like me? How could i keep them on my shoulder?
I want to get my rattie a buddy, but my mom says one rat is enough (which it is obviously not!)…My rat’s name is Stitch. He’s a gray with a white blaze down his face. He also has a white belly, and gray tail with a pink tip on the end. How can I potty-train him? He also will not go on his wheel. He isn’t food-motivated, so I don’t know how to get him to learn his name or do other tricks/actions. What healthy treats do you think would motivate him? Please give advice and recommend videos!
That cage is so nice! Your rats are so cute :] I miss having them. My last was a little hairless girl who passed away in June. Most of my rats have sat on my shoulders nicely, save for my first one. She would crawl into your shirt and if you were wearing a bra, she’d sit between your breasts and stick her head out of the collar of your shirt. Otherwise, she’d crawl down and pop her head out of your sleeve lol.
Female rats are way more active than males so I’d suggest if you plan on getting a less active rat in the future you get males. Other than that the thing I found works if giving them little treats to eat on your shoulder. I used to have a baby rat would would cuddle in my hair, but what he really loved was hiding in the hood of my hoodie when I’d put it up over my head. They find it a very comforting place to sit or sleep. Good luck 🙂
rats only bite if there older and never ever been handled
You can handle babies from birth thats if mum will let you but your best of training your rats when there very young
they don’t normally jump of but they do walk on your arms if there cross also i sat on the floor with Ben hes my black hooded dumbo and he always jumps of onto the floor hes a little bugger for that haha
I have 16 rats 4 does and 12 bucks and i stook all 12 on my shoulder they loved it haha
Will they jump off as they act like they would like to? I heard they won’t jump off. ??? I just don’t want to lose her in the house?
I don’t know why but I was laughing the whole way through this video
one of my rats started sitting on my shoulder the day i got her. my other rat doesnt though… she more perfers to be in mmy bra -.-
Rats bite less than mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, and gerbils are liable to do.
i’ve heard that they rarely ever bite. can’t say for sure since i don’t have one, but i am doing extensive research because i AM planning on getting rats soon 🙂
WILL THEY BITE???
i think super glue will work : )
I just got 2 female rats, I think they think I’m annoying LOL.
Anyways I really want to play with them but they stay in their cage, what canz I do? 🙁
i had just regular fancy rats…. atm i have 2 dumbos these videos are a few years old these rats have all passed away unfortunately 🙁
what type of rats do you own, Dumbo or fancy? or some other breed?
could you do a vid about how t convince your parents to let you/me get a rat
Is the rat going to jump off the shoulder?
I have two baby rats, one has loved me and trusted me since day one and even falls asleep on my shoulder. I’ve had her about 2 weeks, she was about 6-7 weeks old when I got her. The other one is probably about a week younger and I’ve had her about a week now. If I try to get her to stay up there she makes a leap for it. The first time I tried it with her she stayed for a minute or two and then made a flying leap to the couch a foot and a half away. Any ideas for this one?
I have rats with the same color coats
Hey, well I got 2 baby rats (females) Cookie and Piper.
They are REALLY hyper and always want to escape when I hold them. So im always nervous to hold them, Any suggestions?
yeah em my 2 girl rats do stay on my shoulder but after like 2 minutes on my they either poo on me or wee on me .do they do that to u? plz reply
what if the Rats want to do down ur arms, just keep putting them back…….
Is there a way to keep them from peeing on you while they’re on your shoulder or is it just a fact of having a rat on your shoulder?
Girls are waaaay to hyper. Some buys will sleep on people though.
