how do you get your rats so docile and calm?
<p>it definitely takes time for them to trust you. i spend time with my honeys every day, let them free roam and let them come to me when they’re in the mood for snugs, on their terms. i also give them yummy fresh food every day, i usually just share whatever i’m eating and it’s nice bonding time to let them lick yogurt or jelly etc off your fingers so they get used to your hands. i also pay close attention to what they like and don’t like… pepper loves it when i touch her face but she won’t let me touch her belly, but daisy’s preference is vice versa, and they both love to be scratched behind their ears. i’ve had my rats for a little over a year :D</p>
