When I first got Betty she squeaked when I tried to pick her up, but soon got over that and I hadn't heard a peep out of her since. I had her in her travel cage while I cleaned out her cage yesterday and I heard her squeaking again. I ran over (thinking a cat somehow got her) to see her apparently stuck in a toilet paper roll I gave her as a toy (her bottom out one end and her head out the other). So as I went to open her cage she pulled her head out and just looked at me before sticking her head back through and squeaking again. So any ideas as to why she was doing that? I'm starting to think she just likes messing with me.

Her doing that also made me realize just how tiny she is. I'd say she's around 6 or 7 months now and she weighs about 9 ounces. Is this normal? Unfortunately I haven't been tracking her weight, but I do know she has grown a little. She just seems smaller than my previous rats, though maybe it's just a lack of hair.
