How to teach a pet rat to spin (four steps)

Posted by ratwoman1958 on Jun 20, 2010 in Rat Videos

Whiskey walks us through the steps of how to teach a pet rat to spin by voice command. When trying this, don’t spend too long training the rat each day, 5 minutes a day is long enough and even at that they are clever enough to pick this up in a few days. This is important too to make sure they are not over-fed during training. Also don’t be in too much of a hurry to move on a step, take time to get the rats used to each stage so that they can understand what is expected of them. Best to basically let your rat dictate how quickly they learn it. Finally, whiskey made the “step” videos today when he can already spin really well, so if the stages look “too neat” i appologise, especially stage three :P. He’s just not used to having so much help with the spins anymore. Feel free to ask any questions or give your own tips.

Pet rats – why it’s important to have two or more

Posted by Big Rat on Campus on Jun 20, 2010 in Rat Videos

Food for thought for those considering buying just one rat on its own, or those who already have just one rat: Rats are really sociable animals and need company all the time, not just human interaction and cuddles but rat companionship. Someone to groom and to groom them back, someone to curl up with for warmth and safety at night, someone to eat food beside so that they don’t feel vunerable. No matter how great an owner you are or how much time your rat spends with you, you still have to sleep and work and no human can replace a second rat for the interaction they get from one another. It’s so important for their quality of life to have a buddy with them at all times. Please ask any questions and leave comments. I hope the video can start to show the connection and bond that two rats form. Whiskey and Womble would never want to be without the other. Please note: If you do only have one rat at the moment then it’s important that you don’t simply get another rat and put it into the same cage. In that situation rats will often fight and could kill each other. For advise on introducing rats to each other please message me. I also just want to add that recently Womble has been pretty ill and Whiskey has been so great to him. He cuddles and grooms him and won’t leave his side. They know when something is wrong with the other and will do what they can to help. Thanks for watching
