Brain- while always being the wild child of the two- has never, ever bitten me. He's accidentally grabbed on to my finger while I was holding a pea or something like that, but never very hard and has always been quick to let go when he's realized it. Today I was refilling their water container and of course my hand is by their cage as I maneuver it- and he bit me. It came out of nowhere and hurt. He really dug those teeth in, too. Left teeth marks and it bled for a few minutes. *sigh* I was so worried about the dogs and the move, I hadn't really thought how hard it might be on the rats- this was their third move with us and of course they are older now- much older than most rats live. Pinky is moving a lot slower but will still cock his head and look really cute for cheese and Brain still climbs up the "walls" of their cage to greet me, but it really hit me today that they are old and it shocked me when Brain bit me. Not sure what my point was...just a sad vent I guess.
