Rats timid after holiday

Post by drussjdavi » Tue Jun 14, 2011 2:07 pm

This is an odd one. My partner and I recently went away for the weekend. We were gone from Friday morning and returned on Monday evening, as we didn't want to be away from our rats for too long. While we were away we asked some friends who live nearby to pop in every evening to feed them, play with them for at least 40 minutes and change their drinking water. Since we have returned (which was only last night) the rats' behaviour is completely different from before we left. Both have gone extremely shy and nervous and spent most of their play time last night hiding, basically acting as they did when we first got them. I'm sure they will settle back into a routine in a few days, I was just curious to know if this was normal and if anyone else has experienced anything similar.
