Mixed-grain baby cereal made with soy milk and sweetened with dark strap molasses - they LOVE it. They'll frantically stuff their faces using both forepaws at once as if it's their last meal every time..with messy results. :O My rats also have a handmade tabletop playpen with plexiglass walls; it sits in the middle of my rat room and they have wooden ladder 'bridges' by which to travel the 5 feet between the playpen and home cage. Both groups get 2 hours a day to freerange between the cage and playpen..males first, females second. The playpen contains plastic pipe sections, scattered jingle balls, a lookout roost, a digging box w/ sprouts and a shallow pan with water and frozen peas (or frozen blueberries)for some diving time. I throw in the occasional homemade 'pinata' too - stuff a toilet paper roll with treats, wrap with tissue paper so it resembles a giant piece candy and hang it a few inches above the flooring.

Doyle (my housemate's rat) loves fortune cookies, is out of his cage several hours a day and spends a great deal of time being petted. He especially loves having his tummy rubbed. He also likes french fries and toast, although he usually gets those sneakily, entertaining as it is watching him to to run with an entire piece of toast in his mouth
