So my parents agreed to let me keep my rats in my room for the first few weeks so that I can get them used to me quicker and today I had their cage open and was trying to coax the mellower of the two out. She has leaning out of the door and I was trying to encourage her to climb out with some bits of treats and such. Eventually I gave up and just started petting her from inside the cage. After a while she darted away from the door, through her little hidey hole, and back to the door, leaning out like she was before. I continued to pet her and she did it again. She never made any sounds or bit me or anything, just checked my hands for treats. My older brother has ferrets and they do similar things when they want to play but since I havnt been around rats much I don't know exactly what it meant. Was she wanting to play or wanting me to leave her alone? Shes usually pretty sweet when I have her outside of her cage (licking my hands, perching on my shoulder, bruxing when I pet her etc.) But I don't want to assume anything.
