Should I be keeping the TV or radio on to get the rats used to some noise or will they get used to louder sounds on their own? How do I get my rats to stay on my bed? I feel like since they hate me so much they’ll try to get off the bed to avoid me. Does it mean rats trust you if they eat food in your direction, and does it mean the opposite if they don’t? Does a rat licking you show affection or tolerance of you or is it just compulsive if I smell nice? How will I know when my rats are tame/socialized? Should I be sitting near my rats while I work or leave them alone? Is it normal for rat behavior to be bipolar? One day they are eager to see me the next day they are terrified of me. How do I start to handle my rats who don't like being touched if I can't free range with them everyday? I watched Shadow the Rat's videos on taming her new babies and I want to try her methods, but I don't have that kind of cage access. My cage is a critter nation on wheels so I can't lure the girls onto my lap or practice with them the way she can. How bad is it if I can't provide them with outside of the cage time everyday? I'm a busy student and some nights are too much. Also my rats aren't really comfortable with me yet but show interest in getting out of the cage. Would jumping straight to bed free range be too much??? Sorry for all the questions! I don't have any other rat owners near me to ask. I feel like I'm the only person who owns rats in 100 miles I would really appreciate it if someone could answer of few of these, it doesn't have to be all of them.
