This picture shows how you can introduce items of interest into your pet’s cages.
Rats are very intelligent compared to other mammals of their size, and providing a stimulating environment prevents boredom and encourages exercise.

I feed my rats, Reggie rat as their main diet, but I do make things for them, and give them chicken bones and dog biscuits ..... I do actually have a diet sheet that states the foods you can and cannot feed to rats.
I only use shredded paper with my rats, as it cuts down on upper respiratory irritation which sawdust can cause, and I also find it cuts down on the smell
Also, I make toys, hammocks, and tunnels etc for them….
