Question about my new rats and a new wheel
I have recently taken in two rats. They are former lab rats and their owner had to go back overseas. They've really taken to my husband and I over the last few weeks. I was worried as I haven't had any rodents as pets since I was a kid. Here is my question: as lab rats they never has access to a wheel. I got them a wodent wheel (we can't let them have free reign of our place- only our hallway is rat friendly). All they do is pile bedding in and around it. They won't go in there unless I put in a treat and then they run out again. How do I get them interested in it? (I understand they may never like it, but they/I won't know until they try it).
If they still don't like it in a few weeks, any want a never used wodent wheel?
