It is the marking of territory like dogs and cats. it is done more by male rats than females and reduces if you get them neutered. What most rat
owners do is lay a rag or towel where you are going to have the rat play.
I was wondering if this was related.
Hmm I love the idea of having 2 of these critters, but I REALLY dont like the urine aspect. If this is the case, then perhaps neutering is an option,
but something I really dont like doing to animals anyways. It's a judgment call I dont feel I'm allowed to make. Sorry, my personal choice.
Still, I'm lacking a certain type of interaction that I feel I can have with an animal, it's just that I've had cats all my life and dogs, and
it's time for something diffrent. Something unique, but something that enjoys interacting with me. Ive always found that to be the more desirable
aspect of a pet, is simply the personal inteaction. These critters seem like they do well in that department. I love cats, but they're like me..
(Im a leo, hmm I wonder) They love attention only when they are not occupied with everything else.
The attention I mean is, inteaction. not
