Hi All,

I am working on training my ratties, but I have been running into a problem.

They love food...but only if they're in their cage. When I get them outside of the cage (and they come out willingly, and seem happy outside the cage), be it on my shoulder or in the bathroom or on the small table I was hoping to use for training, they're not so interested in food. They spend tons of time exploring but just don't care that I have treats. It's the same treat that, if offered at the cage door, would be fought over and consumed immediately.

Have you ever run into this problem? What are your suggestions?

Also, what are your rats' favourite treats? I am trying to find something that's not bacon or chocolate chip cookies (ie unhealthy) that will be high-interest.

Thanks in advance :)
