Because the rat fell outside of my room, she was fine and didn't even try to run away, she is really sleepy right now, but I just feel really bad because what if the dog or the cats had been there? She fell of my shoulder and I couldn't reach her so to take her when I felt her fell.

Falling can cause damage internally. You'll want to watch her closely to see if she's still acting normally and eating and has the same activity level as before. You could take her in for an exam by a qualified rat veterinarian. This is always a good idea---the worst thing that can happen is your vet will say she's fine! (And then you have peace of mind.)

Did she fall because she's getting older and wasn't able to hold onto your shoulder very well? You might want to hold her in your arms from now on if she's unable to be stable while on your shoulder.

Hope she's okay!
