I take them out and play with as often as I can, but they only truly seem happy if they are in their cage.

They are weird little ones, they go nutty if you change anything in it, they have it just how they like it, so they throw a fit when I clean it, they will climb around on the bars for a few hours trying to figure out what has been moved... *sigh* silly little girls lol.
Yeah, we've had ours since they were 6 weeks old, so we basically hand raised them, so they love being out and about, if we watch them we'll just let them run around the couch. Heidi discovered the floor the other day so we're having to watch them much more closely when they're out.

Hehe, so do ours. They'll run around their cage for a good 15 minutes at least after their cage has been cleaned. We made the mistake of putting something new in their cage a few months back and it took them about 2 months for them to finally realize it was 'ok' for them to climb on it and it wouldn't eat them!

I got mine from a pet store when they were tiny little things. I didn't originally want to get more rats after my mothers dog killed my 2 beloved boys, but Milla(my baby) had somehow been injured and was missing a hand and was going to be snake food because they did not want people to see an injured animal in the cages, but I bought her while she was in the little box about to go into the freezer so they could fed her to the snake, and picked up her twin sister Dori too so she wouldn't be lonely.

I have handled them nonstop since they were little babies, but they are still pretty hesitant to leave their cage unless they are being held, then they only like to snuggle up and go to sleep, they won't run around if I put them down...
They take to new stuff ok, it is just when the old stuff is moved that they freak out...
