Hello! I got a baby rat (6-8 weeks by looks, but don't know for sure - what do you think? That's him: https://imgur.com/a/9QOMLS2 ), and he's been shaking in fear in the carrier since yesterday. He pees and have soft poops everytime I come near carrier. I added a cardboard house for him to hide, and little one never comes out of it. He had a little bit of food, but that's it. He doesn't bite, but he looks like he can die from any sound we make. He litterally jumps up with huge blue eyes, at any noise. I'm at loss - all boys I had before have always liked me and each other day one.. I fear he'll always be like this. How do I go about this? Giving treats / putting hands in cage for investigation all seem to freak him out, so I left him be for now and just work near his carrier without giving him attention, just talk to him sometimes. He currently lives in a large carrier, I didn't put him in cage (furret XL) because I was scared he'll get lost or be even more scared. Can he die from fear? Can I still get him a friend? Do I need to introduce them, or can I just put them in new cage together, if his friend will be a baby, too, and both have never been in that cage (neutral territory)? I'm scared of introduction, didn't work out for my first rattie (but he was adult), other rats came in pairs already. How can I make things easier for him? I want him to have the best life. Any advice is appreciated!
