Rat RevengeI love my rats. Today we began the exercising of the enriched rats: they all get to play together in the enriched room, which is filled with toys and interesting things for them to play with. We have affectionately coined this room the "Ghetto Enrichment Room", and this is why:
notice the rusty cages and the empty chemical waste containers. With my luck, the rats are going to get tetnus and die on us.
Unfortunately, after having 20 minutes to play in the room, the rats really don't want to leave. So they hide under anything they can squeeze between. When you do manage to nab them, they piss and shit all over you as a form of revenge. I had to go to stats class smelling like rat piss, it was lovely.
