Hi Just the past week my almost 4 and 5 month old rats are having regular accidents while I'm holding them. Not just a drop of pee but their entire bladder. Today they have both peed on me, it's inconvenient having to change twice a day lol
Also one girl even pooped and peed on my bed last night I had to change the sheets.

When they wake up I give them time to toilet before taking them out, and prior to this week they've never had an accident on me.

Nothing in their environment has changed.
So not sure why they're suddenly treating me as a toilet :oops:

Have you changed their diet recently? 馃挍

I feel like for male rats this is quite normal...all of my males will pee on me every time I take them out. I have also read that it can be a way for them to claim their territory kind of like male dogs...I may be wrong though completely
