A lot of my rats wrestle with me now. I of course teach the young'uns when I get them. But I have taught older rescue rats as well.This is my technique to start. Hand over the head and shoulders from the front, and a light shake. At first they are confused, but then they figure out that I am initiating a play session and will bounce forward. Thats the beginning. I made this video to show a woman how I interact with my rats, and she ended up with playful rats too. :)


Dilly is a Mastah Wrestler (see his post below with video), and as soon as I touch him he throws himself on his back and "fights" me. :D He's 14 months but acts like a juvenile rat still. LOL

Yes I have an FN. I had helped out a fellow rat owner through a horrible crisis with her 3 boyrats, helped run her rats to vets, paid for hospitalization and sadly a necropsy and histo, while dealing with loss after loss myself, and some wonderful people on another forum, decided to secretly collect money to help me out.
They ended up with so much money, they put money on account at my vets, sent me a Large Martin's Playpen and a month later I had an FN show up at my door!!! I loooove this cage and those wonderful people!!!
