Jack is acting weird

Last night Jack didn't want to come out of the cage for playtime. I brought him out anyway, and he spent the whole time hiding in his igloo in the play pen. He barely came out at all, even when I was giving them cheerios. I haven't seen him eat any of his food in the last day, and I haven't seen him out of his igloo since I put him back in his cage last night. I did make sure that he's still peeing/pooping.

Apollo already has a vet appointment scheduled for today, so I guess little Jackie's gonna come along with us. He's just acting weird.

I hope he is alright.
He might just be having an "off" day.
How old is he?

He's 15 months old. He doesn't appear to have anything else wrong, and I did actually see him eating a little while ago. I hope he was just having an "off" day. I will see how he's doing before I decide whether to bring him to the vet.

best wishes I've never had a ratty with an "off day" so I can't help. Hope he comes around soon!

I decided not to bring him to the vet yesterday since I saw him eating. Then, when they had their playtime last night, he seemed totally normal. I don't know what was up with him but I'm glad that he seems fine now.
