“Diana and Martha have finally come out of their shells and have so much more confidence. Both will come and climb on me during free roam and are much better about allowing you to pet them.
Diana is now okay with being picked up (still not a big fan) while Martha still requires me to use a piece of fleece to pick her up. Martha has gotten so much better about exploring with her teeth. She will now carefully take treats from my hand. She has learned that fingers are not food 😉
Diana loves to take pieces of newspaper and scrap paper that I lay around the room and take them into the cage for nest building later.
All love to explore, run, climb and jump during free roam. They also love to sit on the open window sill and smell the fresh air while snacking on puffs or cheerios (especially Martha).”
“These girls are super sweet and all have their own unique personalities.
Diana and Martha can be timid and do not like being handled or picked up. When they have to be picked up, I use a piece of fleece to scoop them up. They will come and climb on my lap for treats where I can get a couple of pets in here and there, but if you are not careful they will give you a warning nip to let you know they are not okay with your shenanigans. Martha in particular likes to explore things with her teeth and tends to think that your fingers always contain treats and if she doesn’t like the particular treat you are holding that there may be something tastier further up your fingers. These divas have both gotten better over the weeks I’ve had them but these girls are definitely for experienced rat owners who can continue working with them. They are not recommended for first time owners or owners with young children.
Florence is the complete opposite of her sisters. She is easily handled and picked up (if you can catch her). She loves to climb and explore. She can be found at the top of the cage, shelves, desks, etc. in a blink of an eye. She is the alpha of the group and loves to chase down and pin her sisters.
They all live for free roam time and if they are awake are usually at the door looking to come out. If I leave the door open, they are out in a flash exploring. They are also trained to come back to the cage with the shake of a treat bag (usually banana chips). This is extremely handy since Diana and Martha do not like to be handled 😉 They are very good about using their litter box and all will occasionaly use their wheel.”
