Does anyone know what is meant with the yawn and Hitler salute? Its always the same, a Rat will come to the door ,stretch, yawn and raise the right arm! it must mean something.

My girls do it when they first wake up and come to see me but they will strech the left foreleg just as often as the right. :) If they've been awake for awhile they don't do it.

Ours will do it as I pass the cage, and to each other, whether they've just woken up or not. I looked it up in a book I have, and it's definitely a form of greeting :)

I talk to my all my pets like they're people, even my fish and frogs... they don't seem to mind the extra attention, although my cat does have that "what the &$^# are you talking about?" look down.

Im convinced that if ya talk to them long enough they start to understand you even though they cant talk back. My rat knows when im pissed or when im in a good mood......when im pissed he wont stop trying to lick my face! And when i talk to him i swear he sits there and listens to me.....he wont just run off.

They certainly can understand emotions. I talk to ours all the time :)

.....I think some of my girls don't care how I feel.....

I know Eskyda knows and cares...sometimes...but I'm not so sure about the others....maybe it's cuase I've had Eskyda the longest.?

I got Eskyda about 5-6 months ago and gradually collected the other 5.
