    Hi

    My ratties keep covering their food dish with Kleenex (given as bedding and toy). Is this normal? They are fed Oxbow blocks and like their food. I feed it to them by hand and have watched them eat it.

    Thank you

    Its just a leftover instinct from stashing in the wild. Others grab their food and stash it somewhere else :)
