I just have two rats now,as ya'll know.Kahlua and Rascal.
Well I just found BOTH of them hate being outside.That truly sucks,because I like taking my rats to parks and festivals and promoting them and letting people see them and dispelling myths.

My beloved Ninja LOVED being outdoors and was a good candidate for these kinds of outings.

But well Kahlua and Rascal were never out until now and they hated.They freaked out big time and Rascal almost got away,he was so scared he booted it.Fortunatly he cornered himself and I caught him.

But no more.
It just sucks,because my babies don't like it outside...so no outings for them.Just thought I would share.

It's okay.I love my two boys very,very much! It just sucks that they don't like outside.But thats okay,we can have fun times indoors.

That's too bad. I was very sorry to hear about Ninja. He was clearly a very special rat.
He was.And even tho I seem fine today...inside it's really painful.I miss him sooo much.

aw hugs! :(

Maybe.
I am not looking much at the moment,but I do want another rat.
I just put looking on hold right now tho.

Looks like you'll just have to bring pictures for those outings of dispelling. lol Poor little guys!
Yeah.
I have tons of rat positve pamphlets,caresheets and stuff like that which I pass out.So I will just use them.

Another thing tho...there is a pet expo coming up and I was entered in the "pet parade" thing with my rats.To show people that rats are greyt! But I cannot take my two boys! Oh well.

Kara took Figaro for a walk outside once. LOL. We were able to follow his path back to the house. He pretty much sat on her shoulder but yeah more effective than bread crumbs that trail was. :rolleyes: Anyway I am sorry to hear that your Ratties won't come out to play with people at festivals.

The only time I can take mine out is in the fall or winter when I'm wearing a hoodie. They go around my neck and somewhat hide.

Aww that sucks Lisa all of my rats love going outside with me! I take them out to raise awareness of pet rats too. My girls prefer it more than my boys coz its all new smells and sounds etc!!!

Hehe my rats will ride on my shoulder fine. I have put them down in the grass before to let them sniff around and kept a really close eye on them. Well it turns out my rat Poppy wasnt satisfied with the grass so she decided to run over to the pavement meanwhile my other rat Daisy thought that tree in the opposite direction was pretty cool so they were both headed in different directions. Luckily I caught them both though lol
