Inuyasha

So my rat Inuyasha (brother to Sesshaomaru) has decided that he's been put on this earth to have my undivided attention...for whatever amount of time he deems necessary.
He'll push the water bottle out of it's hanger, to get my attention, and then once I go over to pick it up, he'll throw food (or poo) at me to get my attention. Which I was told by my vet to ignore, because he's just doing it to get my attention-he'll stop if I ignore it (ha ha) But he hasn'[t let up, I've been spending extra time with him, which does seem to encourage him to do it time and again.

I'm just looking for idea's to see if I can get him to chill out with the tossing stuff at me? One of my other rats Pinky Dinky Doo, is getting jealous, apparently I'm "his" (he even "barks" at Keith-my BF) while I'm holding him, and will even box with Keith, he won't bite him-I think-but now he's starting to smell my cheating heart, and is getting the blues..Any Ideas? they don't live together, and Yasha doesn't play well with others.

I am seriously considering calling a Pet Psychic!

Reward him by holding him when he behaves, ignore him - don't pay attention to him at all, when he throws stuff.

Do you like anime by any chance? Just keep ignoring him and it will stop eventually. Does pinky have a cage-mate? If he is getting depressed it may be a good idea to get one

Inuyasha's brother here Hamlet and Lestat are the same. Lestat will throw stuff at me or rattle the bell till I come only to pet him. His other brother hamlet ham for short is more waits by the door for me to pick him up and pet him. Laste is more a pet me rat and let me out but with jon my other half he wants held. Ham is more so loves any one but is always doing cute things for my effection. Althogh they dont act as bad as yasha dose.
When you say borther to sessomaroo you mean cariter wise???? becuae if I am corect maroo is the one with the moon crest whos out of rogus litter that I called nightcrawler. and yasha is out of Nomers litter black mama which I now have and Herosieo.
I would keep ecnoring him or when he dose that put him in a 10 gal tank for a few mins and say no bad boy time out and ecnore him for a few mins. Like when you are holding him or have you and your other half tryed changing rolls as in switch to him playing with him more and feeding him and cleaning out the cage revers Phcology. I have one freind who is currently doing this 10 gal with her one rat becuase he bit her husband pretty hard. Although he was stressed becuase the new dog who is anoying to him the rat and he is the youngest and is trying to challenge the older males for dominets. He is fine with her still and the kids but when he is aroudn the dog or others he is jumpy and that was never a problem before. We think its just male dominets were he is the youngest and the others are getting to old except one who he is trying to challage but looses so we think he has issuise with the one. althought Yoda is hamlet and Lestat brother brother to your Inuyasha and Yoda was bred with tattoie and his 2 boys live together and they all are not as bad as Inuyasha is. lol maybe you have the reble or black sheep of the family. lol
Pinky when he barks at your other half you could do the tank thing with him or have something eals there but say time out or something so if you ever have to use what ever you place him in to go some were he dont think he is being punished. They are so smart you have to figer out how to out smart them sometimes

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.

I love Anime, I named the one rat Sesshamaru because he has a crescent moon head spot, and who else but The Destroyer of the Circle of Life would have that, and his buddy needed a name, so of course it had to be Inuyasha! I used to have a dwarf hammie named Onichambara, and one of my cats' name is Kai (Ok not really anime, but Video Game, Kai from Heavenly Sword)
When I say "brother" I just mean that they are in the same cage. Yasha and Maru live in a cage with Billy, Mandy, Curtis and Guiness.

You need one to call grim LOL to go with billy and many LOL. I love Inuyasha and only have one name Kagome Higutashi. But I use to name my betas After the anima. I supose that none have ever cuaght my eye to be named after Inuyasha.
The one little boy that got a dwafr hamster off me names his Zelda lol. Speekign of rats I got some pictures of the rats that came back to me. I didnt get all of them but I intored them yester day to the big male cage and they are all getting along of course I do have some of thier siblings still. There freindly when held but still skidish.
I felt bad that she cant have them since her dad passed and she has to live with her mom who is allergice to the sunshine even. Her mom is really ill and even though they have a nurse that comes in some one has to be there 24/7 so she got tranfured her job so while at work the nurse is there and when off work she is there. I felt bad becuase she loved them so much.
They are fat guys though. lol
Well like the orphen cat we kept in is not related to angus dc gem or jewels but I say be nice to you nephew or stop beting up on your cusint. lol jewels and ash can the adopted cat omg drive me nuts sometimes when playing.
I would try switching rolls have keith feed water and play with Inuyasha and pinky try the revers phycology thing. and ecnore him trying to get your attenchen it may take a while but in the end you'll have less mess to clean up with him trowing stuff. and Pinky you siad barks at keith as which is like him saying mine stay away right. Reverce Phycology have keither get him out and play with him alone for a while then you with out keith and then try it together see if it works. Its worth a try.

Uhmm no, Pinky doesn't like Keith, I don't actually think he'd go so far as to bite him, but I wouldn't trust him not to bite him if he were to stick his hand into Pinky's territory, he doesn't even like it if Keith is handing out treats, Pinky will come to the front of the cage and bark at him. So no, I wouldn't let Keith feed them!
