No, even now I don't have much time for them or to bond with them. Not as much as I had when I first got them. I initially wanted to find a home for them because although I love them, they need someone who can give them more attention. Someone to let them roam free (because I can't really let them out for any range of time) and really give them the TLC they deserve. The school part is more of a secondary thing.A lot of users here have work or school (Me included) who still care for their pet rats... Do they usually free-range at all times? I'm asking because I'm wondering why being in the cage for the day until you get home is a problem.
