I was wondering if you guys knew the amount of hours rats usually sleep? Like cats sleep most of the day (I think it's like 16+ hours or something like that).

Part of it is probably that rats don't sleep as deeply as many other creatures (the whole 'prey' thing)

my rats are under 2 months old (i think), so they sleep a lot, i'd say 16 hours a day (like cats!)
they wake up every couple hours for around 15 mins to eat/drink/toilet, then go back to sleep.
they're so cute when they're sleeping! <3
