Ok.. so question...

Wht does my little Hector only seem to eat when he is in his rat apartment? When I take him out for play time on the bed.. Sometimes i try to give him treats.. But he wants nothing to do with them. But when I put him back in his apartment he will eat. This normal behavior?

I think you need to start ONE thread with your questions in it...we'll answer one, and then the next time you have a question, post it in the same thread...call it "Questions about Hector (ongoing)" or something like that. :D

A lot of rats take time to relax enough to eat outside of the cage, and will only eat inside the cage. In time this could change and you will have a rat trying to steal the food on the way to your mouth :D

No offense taken, it would just be easier for everyone :) We have something like this going for a newbie-ish on another forum...and its going very well...others are learning as they read along as well :D

No worries Jimmie, the more questions a newbie rat parents asks about their new baby, the more concientious and thoughtful that person is about wanting to do all the right things for their ratty, so it is a good sign to ask a lot of questions! :thumbsup:
