We just rescued two female rats born November 14th, we gave them some water and ensure by syringe. They didn't drink much, am I being too fatherly to the girls? I read they should be eating and drinking on their own by now but I'm worried that they don't know what a water bottle is or the wet oxbow young rat food we put in for them. One of them just wants to sleep the other will come out and check out the cage and I caught her eating a banana puff rat treat I put in for them. they seem to try to nurse on my shirt but when offered wet food or ensure they turn away.
