I have 2 female rats and I’ve had them since this summer. They are great. They’re very friendly and sociable. The problem is, when I get them out of the cage, they still seem a little timid. When I take them out, I put them in my room and usually do homework. If they get close, something as simple as the flip of a page will make them bolt. I take them out almost every day. I’m not worried about it, I just want to be able to play with them more outside of the cage. Thanks.
