We have a friend with a male rat, and he comes over every day for about ten hours. [guys playing Xbox...I couldn't sit for that long and play video games!]
The majority of the rest of the day he is out f his cage, and on the bed, with us. I know rats need companion ship, which is why he's out so much. I'd love to get another male [oh the joy of a new rattie!] but my mother would kill me. I already have so many animals!
His cage is open all day, except when we're sleeping. Only about five hours.
Sometimes he prefers to lounge about and sleep all day, other times, hes playful all day!
Hea the first one to greet us in the morning, and the last one to say good night.
We take him outside in the yard with us, we have a special cage for outside, and a bag to carry him in. He's out constant companion.
Some people don't understand our live for our rattie boy, [like my parents] but he is the best rat I've ever had. Hes content with just sleeping in our laps or peeking out of the bag.
He frequents my trips to the LPS, where they give him treats, and belly rubs.
Hea usually the one to call it quits with play time! He's the perfect excuse for school work breaks..he just climbs on the computer and sits on the keyboard, typing "ghffffffffff" til you pick him up and snuggle him..
