We have our rat cage sitting right next to my computer, with one of my monitors actually touching the corner of the cage. I never thought about it before, but today I noticed my older monitor buzzes slightly and it occurred to me the rats might be hearing a lot more electrical noise than I do coming out of my electronics. Is it bad for their health to have the cage near the computer? They don't seem to be uncomfortable in the cage and return to it on their own after free-ranging, but they sleep more than they did before we moved the cage next to the computer.

Well I know that to keep rats and mice away at my camp there's this little box thing we plug into the wall and it makes a sound like that that keeps them away so maybe but if there not having any issues and don't seem to be annoyed I think it should be fine

I am sensitive to electrical boxes and electrical plants however well thats me. It might be bothering them. If they are having issues then I would move them.
