you mean scent trails, right?

Hmmm just sounds like pee and a lot of animals leave pee when they want to leave a scent behind but im not a rat person, sorry. Im sure Katie or one of the other PT'ers will be around soon to help you out.

female rats just like males leave trails of pee where they go, its a way for them to know things like i was here, this is a known place to me, it tells the other rats their status, such as if they are in heat, who's territory is this, ect..I have noticed that with my rats the dominant one would leave more urine, sometimes the dominant one would leave scent marks on the other rat!

Yup. It's just pee. I find my rats will do it more when I have a bunch of them out at once, as if to say 'She's mine!'.

It's just pee. Just remember when they pee on you they're just saying they love you

Rat pee doesn't usually smell that much. As long as you're not covered in it I think you'll be okay.

They are just marking you as their territory...so means they love you so much they claim you as theirs, they think it the other way around!!
