Exploring the Outdoors

So far, I've taken Jack outside twice and Gus out once. They enjoy playing and hiding in the flower pots and digging in the dirt. Don't worry, they are closely supervised and I put them in a place that's off of the ground where they can't run off or anything. They don't really come when called like Nibblet did.


What kind of adventures will you enjoy on this wonderful Wordless Wednesday?

  5. the nose between the flowers is super cute! Do you think they will come when you call them like Nibblet after a while or are they more "individualists"?

    1. Hmm not sure, maybe one day they will. If anyone, I think Jack could learn to do it.

  13. Miss Ann, since rats are so smart, couldn't you clicker train them to come when called? This way, you can snag them before they run away. Oh...and maybe you can teach them some fun tricks too!

    1. Yes, I could. I'm not sure if it's harder to teach older rats tricks or not. I used to make a clicking noise with my tongue to get Nibblet's attention and she always came to me. So I guess that with her, I uexpectedly was training her also.

  15. If they aren't the cutest things. When we had a guinea pig and a rabbit, I used to take them outside too. They never ran away, just loved being outside and nibbling on clover.

  25. Ann, you're the bomb! You answered my question before I could type it. I wanted to know how you didn't lose them outdoors - and you told me! They are so cute, and they look like so much fun...

    1. I wish I had taken my last rat outdoors because I totally would have let her on the ground. She was much more obedient than these two are.

  26. What I would worry about is a hawk or other bird of prey would swoop down and whisk away a rat. Do you have protection overhead? Also, if they were to get suddenly startled or spooked they might jump up high out of fright and land somewhere on the ground and then run away to hide. Maybe I'm paranoid....but I'd love to learn more from your perspective.

    Gus and Jack are so precious!

    1. We definitely have hawks around, but there is a shade cloth overhead because my parents own a nursery and that's where I live also. I don't *think* a hawk would want to swoop down with 3 humans and a dog around either. I don't really know hawk behavior, but it just doesn't seem like something they'd do. We also went inside the greenhouse for a few minutes which is completely covered as well. I don't trust these two as much as my last girl rat, so I keep my eye on them!

    2. I knew you were keeping it safe. I appreciate learning from the additional details. That's so cool you can go inside the greenhouse and that you live on property with a nursery! Jack and Gus are lucky guys.

  27. Oh my goodness, they are adorable! Aw, it's so sweet to think Niblet would come when she was called - maybe these guys will get better about that over time. Thanks for sharing - these photos made my morning! :)

    1. Oh yes - definitely! All of the tricks that you could imagine teaching your dog, you can teach to a rat too.
