Hi, my name is Jan, my family and I have just become the proud owners of a little ratty called Pip (she's absolutely adorable even if I do say so myself haha). I think we kind of went about getting our little rat the wrong way, we didn't do much research about rats before hand. We got her from a pet shop. We were told she's about 6/7 weeks old but we think she is younger (she's about the size of an adult hamster). She's quite nervous but seems to be getting a bit braver everyday. I've been handling her daily since we got her (5 days ago). We've tried her with cheerios and treats but she isn't too fussed on them so we've tried baby food which seems to be working well. She's now willingly coming to the front of her cage and when I held of her yesterday she even groomed me :blush: (I've attached a pic but not sure if it's uploaded properly).
