sorry, as i said in my last post i am a first time rat owner. i have yet to hold my rat at home (i only got her the day before yesterday and they told me to leave her alone for 24 hours). every time i open the cage door, she gets completely scared and runs to her far corner even though i was holding her fine at the pet store. now i know that i need to pick her up to make her friendly and keep her friendly, but what is the best way to do it? normally ill walk over to her cage and talk to her quietly and let her smell my hands first so she knows its me. just want to know the best way to approach her. do i just reach in and grab her? im worried that if i do that she may bite me and never want to be held. please help!
