i am getting worried that i dont spend enough time with my rats. over spring break i have been gone alot, but when i am home i do mess with them a hour or more a day. i have 4 rats so they dont get lonely. i feel bad about leaving them often. every weekend i am gone friday to sunday. my mother takes care of the rats, and even feeds them treats. but she doesnt get them out. i dont really blame her. they are my rats and its my job. is going 3 days without letting them out of thier cage as mean as i feel it is. when i am home they are always showered with attention, and if they do live by routine they know on the weekends they will not be let out. they do have lots of toys and everything like that to keep them busy, but i do feel bad because i have been gone 3 or 4 days at a time lately.
