so...my rat bella will NOT get friendly....like I just don't get it. I hold her everyday for hours, letting her explore my room with her buddy punkin (who is the biggest sweet heart ever!) and she is STILL cranky and BITES like no other! last night, bella bit through my friend jessi's finger....and it BLED SOOOO MUCH! why is this happening?

Some times rats need their space. Try holding her more often but for shorter time periods. Let her see your hands so you don't startle her. Pick her up for a minuter of so, and give her a treat while your holding her then set her down and let her be for awhile. Also it could just be your girls personality, my girl Cinna-bunn so far hates being held so I just hold her for short times and put her down and she seems to tolerate it. Then she off to explore the great unknown. Hopefully your girl will learn being picked isn't so bad and will stop biting. *note* the sooner you start the better, you don't want her to get in to the habbit of biting.

Hope this helped
