What's your rat's fave spot to be rubbed/petted? XD For Zinc it's her forehead/the area between her eyes... not sure about Klardae yet :]

Doris is too busy running around getting into things to enjoy much of a rub or a scratch, but she tolerates having her flanks and back stroked, and sometimes her forehead.

I haven't known Millicent for long but she doesn't mind being stroked. She seems to prefer hands-off appreciation though. She's an older lady and she would probably rather respect than rubbing.

A good tip for even the fast moving rats. Take your hand and put it over their head to their shoulders, from the front. Scritch the shoulders/neck...often they will start to lick and groom you with their teeth as you hit The Spot. :D

Our girls like behind the ear and on the cheek (sort of), just up from the corner of their mouths. Our youngest also likes a belly tickling occasionally, and a pinch and rub of the skin on the back of her neck. :)
