hi, so about a week ago i got two new rats (Jack and Vincent), and besides them both being very underweight, Vincent is very hostile and he stands with his ears back in a corner every time i try to interact with him, hes also bitten me quite hard a few times. Of course ive been feeding them plenty of fatty foods to make them gain weight and be happier but he just wont come around to me. Ive tried to free roam him a few times and he just sits inside a cardboard box, which i let him do because i wont force him out of the place that hes most comfortable. However i really need advice on the biting issue and how to make him realise that im not going to mistreat him like his previous owner, (hes under 6 months old btw, id say around 3 and a half months). Im not sure what to do as Jack is very sociable and has never bitten, i need to do something before i introduce them both to my other two boys. Thank you, any advice is appreciated. - Arthur
