she just finished licking off some cream cheese from my finger left over from dinner as desert. i think you should try that for a treat too. the only problem is it is very fattening, but i guess i little every once in a while as a small treat would be ok. she is very used to me now and i am sure glad you guys are givin' me these great ideas . i will try peanut butter tommorow night. every night after dinner she gets a treat, and sometimes in the morning she gets some of my oatmeal and scrambled eggs. she always wishes it were night time i bet. at night before i have my dinner, i give my rattie some sping mix lettuse, some corn, spinach, ceralry in little peices because its hard to chew, broccili, apples and pears, a banana cut up, and some chicken. no lie, i am serious. her regular food diet is the forti-diet pellets and sunflower seeds. she is a spoiled rat, that's for sure. :lol: the only tipical problem is that she is not eating any of her regular food diet. i mean i started her off in the beggining when we got her on just the forti-diet and then we added the sunflower seeds. she wouldn't and still wont touch any of fer regular food diet. that is part of the reason why we gave her some other healthy food, so she wouldn't starve. and every pet owner should know to not give their animals treats as their regular food diet . i give her one treat every night, a lick of cottage cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, or even peanut butter off my finger. and i also give her the other stuff to that is also very healthy and she eats that, its just the regular food diet she is not eating. i need any ideas of other commercial rat food to give my rat. any suggestions are welcome.
