I live 40 min from my college where i live with my rats. there they have an appropriate sized cage. however at my house the only cage is super small and i feel horrible putting them in there the 2 times i’ve bought them home i found they just tend to hide in the cage and don’t come out at all. they also just seem very stressed from the sudden change and also the car ride. I was wondering if it was just better to leave them for weekend trips. Obviously I’ll have to pack up their big cage for christmas break but i was thinking they can be ok for two days if i leave extra food? it seems better then the stress of bringing them home.
