I always thought a pet rat free roaming around your entire house was a crazy idea until I got my lil bub Rice, he's a sweetheart and has no problem with it, he's so curious and comes up to everyone and comes when called, he was so scared to even touch the tiles separating the hallway and my room for awhile haha, but slowly we helped him overcome his fear of the forbidden hallway and now he goes everywhere. And then there's Link, oh boyyy. She does great free roaming in my room, a gentle sweet baby all the way but decides shes a wild rat in the rest of the house. It's so frustrating! She gets so scared and hides for no reason! I don't want her to be this way because I want her to trust us and feel safe and secure--- which she is 100% but it's never gonna happen. I'm not even gonna ask how to get her to be more open about it because it is in her personality to be skittish, and you can't change a rat's personality so that's just the way it's gonna be with her. I have 3 more babies that im currently working on with that too :--) Does anyone else let their rats go about their day in their entire house?
