Brie and Camembert (~8 month old sisters)
Hello all! New rat dad here! I have two girls (Brie and Camembert), sisters, about 8 months old. They don’t like to be handled that much, but we are getting some progress with nap time in a hoodie. They will come out of the cage for treats and tolerate some pets. But the real issue is that Camembert is constantly biting the cage wires. There are plenty of toys, chew toys and stimulating toys (I got an old sock filled it with treats and bedding and paper), a wheel. But still she will chew on the cage all day and night long. I have read that some rats will do this for attention but she will do it even with me sitting right next to the cage feeding treats and giving pets.
