That video was just adorable! Never really got the chance to see our ratties liked the water but I will tell you my Max was so funny when I would take him out in the backyard into our soft, thick grass, so silly to watch him hop around like a bunny Awww I miss them terribly, but thanks for sharing your babies with us all! All your pics made my day today!
Well, at first I noticed that they really liked playing in their water dish. So I introduced shallow dishes of water to them to see if they liked that too. Once they started playing comfortably in that I gave them more water to play in the next time. I have not been able to get them in water that they can swim in yet. ^^ This is a very good video to watch. ~> [link]
Aww. My first rat really liked the water, but his cage-mate didn't. XD The ones we have now only dislike it if it comes from the sink, for some reason. They'll play in it and drink it, as long as it's nowhere near the sink. XD It might be the noise, idk.
Awe, that sounds unpleasant. Maybe someday you too will have a water loving rat. ^^ I am guessing mine would not like water so much if I put them in it. I do not know, though, I have never experimented. XD
