How to handle Roof Rats the easy way

Picking up roof rats and getting them to cooperate with you can be easier than you think! If you hold them by the scruff of their neck the same way that mama cats carry their kittens, it makes them calm and cooperative. And it absolutely won’t hurt or scare them Also, watch how I gently guide them to go where I want without having to force them.

Calm, gentle, cheerful and patient handling keeps roof rats cooperative and makes your time with them less stressful and more enjoyable!

Unfortunately, this rat is not very cooperative. Watch the video and see if you can guess why “Big Boy” is so naughty.

Still not sure? Here’s another Big Boy video!

If you guessed that Big Boy is naughty because we have rewarded bad behavior, you are absolutely right! Anyone want a “slightly used” pet roof rat? He’s really cute, but really annoying LOL!
