So I was just playing with my rats today in my playpen and I put both of my rats on my shoulder. Then my rat Ben jumped from my shoulder, over the side of the playpen and under my bedroom door. It went into my hallway, where my dog was waiting. So I jumped over the side of the playpen, ran into the hallway and found it right outside the door and grabbed him just as he was running away. I held him tight for a second while I freaked out. Then put him back in his cage. I'm still shaking. I've had my rats for a week and a half and thought they were finally warming up to me. I was wrong. Does anyone know what I did wrong? Or something I should change about the way I am with my rats? Please help me!
