I just lost two of my sanctuary fosters (euthanized) which leaves me with an elderly foster girl, who won't be alone for very long (they are going to send me two more older girls to keep her company) I hate seeing a rat alone, and am spending as much time with her as I can, but of course that's never enough. she is a sweet girl and enjoys cuddling up with me and exploring the sofa while I watch tv. Doesn't care to be out on a table or the floor, she seems a bit overwhelmed by that, but loves fleece tunnels on the sofa. What sorts of things can you do to help a lone rat feel less alone? I've given her toys, things to chew, things to shred, boxes to hang out in, hanging toys etc. At her age, however, what she mostly was doing was sleeping, often alone, or sometimes with her cage mates. even though she didn't sleep with them that much, I'm sure she misses them, they did snuggle up together from time to time. I was thinking of moving the cage next to where I sleep, but there's one problem with that: I have to sleep in a room that's a bit cooler than I think would be good for her... Plus, I don't know how much of a difference it would really make to her for me to be nearby when we we can't interact, you know? there's a tv or radio on all night and I leave a radio on when I go out. what else can I do?
