So, maybe I am just a worried mom, but Gus is acting sort of strange. He is sleeping out in the middle of the cage where there is no covering or anything just out int he open. He has his head on his hands, sort of sleeping like a dog. I took him out of the cage, and he was his normal seflt just crawling all over me like normal. And I felt him all over just to make sure he wasn't hurt. Do you think he is sick? He always either sleeps in his chube or in a hammock.

I feel like I can't say it enough- rats are weird.

This sounds totally normal to me; my girls sometimes sleep wherever they feel like it, and although she usually picks a corner, Belgie does that same pose for sleeping a lot. If you felt him all over, and have been watching for signs of sickness but he seems fine, I think he sounds like he's just trying something new.

thanks. i just picked him up again just to make sure he was okay. he seems alright. he was moving kinda slow though. probably because he just ate like a pig. he is like, obsessed with food. anyway, thanks Captain!
