Psycho rat. (explaines it all)
I have the most hyper rat EVER, her name is rattles, she enjoys running in the wheel all night long and chasing the scaredy cat rat around the cage. sometimes she doesnt let her down to the lower levels for a few mins.. and makes her squeek every night.
She is the youngest of my rats and i dont know how to wear her out to be calmish. She runs around her cage (it is 3 levels, 3'x2'x4') litterly she runs around the sides and upside down off the next levels floor and bites the rats feet that are above her, and they cant run quick enough to get out of her way, she can run faster upside down.
last night i saw her jump from the bottom floor and landed upside down on the floor above her, thats 20inches!! my other rats still havent taken to the wheel but she runs so hard that the wheel comes off its stand!! and sometimes she just sits and bounces.
I dont take her out with the others (she bites if you try and pick her up when she doesnt want to,not that hard but im sure they would be if i didnt let her be) i just let the door be open and they can come out on their own, probably 30mins to 1 hour at a time, but normally she doesnt come out she just runs like mad threw her cage and chases everything
My boyfriend thinks that she is just playing and plays hard which is probably true because she never draws blood or anything she seams pretty happy and the others sleep with her... but shes crazy
i was wondering how can i wear the little girl out? should i get the largest rodent ball for her to run around the house in for hours?
any other ideas? or shouldnt i worry about it?
