I brought home 2 young rats from Petco a few days ago. They've acclimated well to the mischief but, expectedly, are still skittish and getting used to handling. I'm assuming this is why they're nippy with me (not aggressive), but was wondering if they're like cats--? I've had a cat who suckled because she was taken off the teat too soon.
You can put a liquid treat such as meat baby food, applesauce, or yogurt on a metal spoon and when the rat bites the spoon, it’ll realize that it hurts. You can do it a few times a day! 💛
