I just bought a new rat today and I know that it's normal for them to be jumpy and nervous when moving into a new home. Is there any way that I can get him to trust me and get used to me handling him? Also I thought maybe getting him a companion would be good for him what do you guys think?

Rats do best in (same sex) pairs.

Make sure to give him a place to hide and toys. Let him settle in a little. Talk to him a lot, give him something that smells like you... handle him gently and often.

what kind of toys? He has a hide box, a kleenex box turned upside down with a hole cut in the end so he can get in. I'll see if I can persuade my dad into letting me get him a companion
