ok so i have a computer in my room and Cheeses cage is on the desk right next to the computer. So every time I get on the computer i let her out. She will come out and I'll play around with her a little bit then she will go off somewhere and come back and my hand will be on the mouse and she will bite me. She wont bite my other hand thats laying right next to it though but just my hand thats on the mouse. At first I thought she was just wanting me to play with her like she was telling me "hey im here"... But she never bites but she ALWAYS bites me when my hand is on the mouse. She doesn't do it hard but still I'll be consintrating on the computer and she will come up with out me knowing and bite me and scare the %&$#@$ out of me!! I don't know what to do. Then I thought I had the smell of food on my fingers then I would wash my hand before i let her out and she still did it. So please help!! She is driving me crazing!

:lol: Um... Mouse pad shark? You're probably just going to have to lock her up if you want her to stop. She probably thinks you're playing, or something.

Stephanie - great idea!

I work with snippy, aggressive dogs (as a hobby when I'm not at the hospital) and that works well with them to. Well, not the aggressive ones as much as the mouthy ones...

Thanks Sparker it is what I do for all of my ratties that are teethy. I usually don't start squeaking until the bites hurt. Sometimes they are just trying to get your attention. My girl Celest just came to live with me last week and she had just left her litter so now she tries to put me in the cage. Well a rat cant hlad your hand with anything but her mouth so that is what she does. I have yet to have to squeak at her and she has never drawn blood.
