I got my 2 ratties yesterday and i left them to get used to there home for most of the day! Before i went to bed i thought id try handling them but they didn't like it and kept leaping out my hands so i thought id leave them for today and try when i got back from college! I've been trying for a few hours now i let them come to me and sniff my hand then try to pick them up they let me pick them up but when i start stroking them on my hand they get freaked! I've just tried putting them in a cardboard box and then holding them over that just trying picking up stroking but it just leads to squeaking! Has any one got any ideas on how i can hod them without them getting freaked out? When i had hamsters they where fine after a few hours but the ratties just don't want to trust me =[ HELP!
