Neville and Remus are our 10 week old boys. They joined our family on Monday evening and are our first ratties. They are settling into their four storey home well (although have only explored the top two floors so far!) and are already showing their developing personalities. Neville is pretty chilled, I can already tell he's going to be a big snuggly boy! He's the more confident one at the moment, loves cuddles and chasing a ball around the cage. Remus is a little more shy, although he's slowly starting to gain confidence. He came out for a cuddle all on his own today - very happy rat mama! While I type he's laid on his back letting daddy tickle his belly. Their home is HUGE! It's filled with lots of hidey spots, cosy places to sleep and lots of things to climb on. As you can imagine, to fill a cage this size (just over 5 feet tall) it would take a lot of bedding! Before we brought the boys home we decided to start with litter training straight away. We decided to use bath towels to line their cage, making it easier to clean and more cost effective in the long run! I also think it looks pretty cosy Neville has a bit of a sneeze going on at the moment. I've read a lot about 'new home sneezing' and so I'm not *too* concerned just yet. His nose and eyes are clean and his breathing is normal. I'll be keeping a close watch on him and Remus over the next few days just to make sure. They play together at every opportunity, lots of squeaking! They are pretty vocal, especially Neville. This also had me a little concerned since he's sneezing a fair bit too, but again I don't think it's anything to worry too much about at the moment.So this week we'll just be getting to know each other, I'm also trying them out with some different foods to see what they enjoy. Any tips on gaining their trust, or good foods to try for 10 wo rats would be much appreciated! Hopefully I'll be able to get some photos of them soon too.
