My S/O's mom loves our rats and thinks they are cute, which is more than I can say for my own mother, and for this I am grateful. BUT I really don't like how she handles them. :/ She is too rough with them and gets frustrated eaisly...anyway, as you can probably tell I'm fickle about who touches them. I know them well and can see when they aren't being handled correctly. I try to not get upset but she never listens! She does what she wants and is very stubborn and gets her feelings hurt when I correct her. This is actually the reason I keep them in our room. Does anyone have any advice? Nice ways to say "Stop holding my rat like a three year old? "... I hope to be moved out in a few months...but until then she is driving me crazy.
