I started feeding it to my rats a couple days ago and they won't eat it. What should I do? o_o


Okay, I fed it to them by hand and they like everything BUT the pasta. XD So I guess it's all good.

They'll eventually get used to it. Rats are smart creatures, they'll sample little bits of food, and if it dosen't make them feel sick then they'll know it's ok ;) (well, in the wild this is normal, my girls are gorbs and don't care :p)

XDD Mine're still young, so yeah. But if it's from me then they know it's okay, so I decided to feed them some from my fingers, like I said. :]

Ratties sort through and pick out what they like in their mix, but I always leave what's left in their cage until they eat it. I don't refill the bowls until everything's gone, even the food that they hid/hoarded :p

I have a cat who had this felt ball and a bunch of toy mice, and he would put them in his food dish. It was weird XD

Ugh, I hate how my rats LOVE to cover their food dish with fleece and towels :p It's so annoying. They also like to go around collecting all of their toys and put them in their food dishes.

LoL Oh you should have seen it, I was cracking up! He would not let go! I tryed to pull my hand away but he just held on tighter...so I just let him and he placed my hand in the bowl and kinda pushed it down, like it was trying to stuff it in there. >.< Jays so funny!

Hes the same as normal. Im VERY sure that its an abscess and the vet wont do anything until I pay him $50 "just to make sure" and then god knows what to remove it. Plus the $35 for the visit.
