I just wanted to know if they like water. I know I have seen that a few people give baths to their rats. I wanted to know if they find swimming enjoyable.
I bet it's because showers and sinks sound scary. The sound of pressurized water isn't natural, and I imagine that it can be alarming for some animals. At least I know my rats tensed up when being walked over toward a running tap.Oddly Fuzzy Rat hated showers and wouldn't go into a dish of water.... She had no trouble with swimming in a lake... but scratched the heck out of me when I took her into the shower or tried to wash her in the sink.... Maybe she hated the soap? Can't say... Don't know.
