Bitey rat

One of our rats, Loco, bites me every time I try to get her out of her cage, but she doesn't attack Mum at all. It really upsets me as she was originally mine and now seems terrified of me. Any ideas what I can do? Our other rats are fine with me, and usually come running when I go anywhere near their cages.

I had a simalar problem a couple years back. My Seka *Rip* REALLY loved me she would go to the back of my neck and groom the base of my skull. Man that tickled!! but I'd put up with it becuase it was her way of saying "I love you!!" BUT she hated everyone else. She bit my mom a number of times and a few of my friend that were "brave" enough to try petting her. No matter what I did it took her over a year to stop bitting other people....

ANYWAY one thing that helped was that I'd hold her and let other people pet her near her tail so she couldn't bite'em.

I hope everything works out for the best and I hope it doesn't end up like my problem did.

Good luck!! :)
