Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum and a new rat owner. (I've owned gerbils, guinea pigs, mice, hamsters, etc, etc, but never rats) I recently adopted two female rats (Panda and Puppy) from someone who no longer wanted them, and they have never been socialized. I built them an amazing three story cage with lots of toys, and I try to give them fruits and veggies daily for treats. Today when I put my finger through the bars to let Panda smell it she bit me really hard- it drew blood and is still bleeding ten minutes later. There was no mistaking that it was a very aggressive bite, and it HURT!!! 8O Anyway, I'm feeling a little discouraged and could really use some advice on how to win them over. They are less than a year old, and fully grown.
