Chew toy

Your rats need a chew toy? Try electrical wire.

All my wires accessible to the rats are protected.
The USB wire for my graphic tablet was not protected because the rats couldn't reach it. Or so I thought, until I caught Blackie chewing the wire while I was drawing. When I use my tablet, the wire falls just close enough to the ground for a rat to bite it. Luckily, she didn't chew the copper wires. It is now protected.

The wire in the photo was from my cable terminal, which I gave to the rats. Thus there was no damage to my eletrical appliances and no rat got electrocuted.

Wow, you trust your rats way more than I do. I put Fluffernutter and Marshmallow on the floor, and they want to go crawl under the couch.

I let them walk in my office. If I shut the door they can't get out. They've escaped a few times when I forget to shut the door, but they always come back for food.

With one hour of playtime outside the cage, they don't have enough time to gnaw a hole through the wall.

the problem with rats and other gnawing is that if they escape and hide in home sometime you can't find them and when they dye home smell for months
