oh gosh, yes. rufus goes totally bonkers over cinnamon flavored cheerios. if i walk into the room he'll turn to look at me, and i'll say "does good boy want a treat?" and he'll come running. or if he's sleeping in his hut and i shake a bowl of cheerios he'll wake up and sprint to the door.aww it's like hes checking to see if you are still there so he can relax and sleep, like a giant walking talking human comfort blankie. ;D My rat Freddy only stares at me when hes hungry... He will run to his bowl and just sit and stare until i rustle getting his food out. The he will run away until I poor it into the bowl which triggers him to scamper back to eat. I don't know why he does it but it's better manners than tearing it out of my hands I guess. Does Rufus do any other quirky things?
