I was petting my rat and the last couple times I pet him he falls asleep and is completely out of it, is that okay? He twitches his whiskers and does tiny squeaks. Anyways I was petting him and he was boggling and he fell asleep and let me rub his belly and I thought he was just relaxing but then he woke up and his little leg is kinda stuck up. I don’t see how I could have hurt him by petting him! Maybe he was already hurt? I also noticed he was gassy and doing little farts. I’m worried he’s had a heart attack or something but he’s eating, I put him on the ground to see if he’d use his foot and he did but in the cage he doesn’t use it, it’s only been a couple minutes. I’ll keep checking him through the night, hopefully he just hurt his little foot a bit. Is it bad to pet their tummies? I know guinea pigs should never go on their backs are rats like that?!
