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!

That makes me feel better 'cause I just figured I raised scaredy rats. I always want to bring 'em out to play in beautiful weather but it tends to be unpleasant. Oh well. :XD:

when I was giving them water to play in regularly it was summertime so it was very warm out. I do give them a big towel to play in as well but they go back and forth getting the towel very wet. XD

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]

I believe a pair of rats just might be good for the health. :D

As one that was born in the year of the rat, I agree! I'll just have to make sure they're spayed and neutered. Because as much as I love rats, I don't want a house-full.

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. :P They'll play in it and drink it, as long as it's nowhere near the sink. XD It might be the noise, idk.

Yeah, I am guessing that mine would feel the same about the sink. :D

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

So cute!! Oh just so freaking cute!

Random question about training rats to water: What temperature of water do you use for ratty splash time? I've tried various temperatures and they still tend to act cold while in it.

When I was giving them lots of water to play in it was summer. It was hot out so I gave them cool tap water. I have never had such water obsessed group of rats before. :lmao:
