They're lucky to be here to be honest. I thought I'd lose them by now. They were so malnourished and weedy I didn't think they'd make it this far.

I am going to invest in a very large playpen. At the moment they go on my bed for free roaming. Smaller space and forces them to interact with me, thus helps with taming.

As soon as I sit by the door Splat (all black) will be by the door and will jump out and sit on my lap and enjoys the attention.

Inky will come up to me but prefers to go in my pocket, sleeve or snuggle sack. She's not a massive fan of open spaces.

Oh yes much faster and agile than hamsters. When splats excited she can do a lap of the cage, just jumping on the bars, faster than you can blink.

They can be active during the day and night. Girls are usually more active than boys and you can hear them at night playing, running on the wheel and digging.

Awww adorable. You must share photos
They do make great pets! They're like tiny dogs. Splat and Inky are my 6th and 7th rats

UPDATE

As the rats are 7-8 weeks old now and solid. They've quickly outgrown their 'kitten cage' and have been upgraded to a more grown up cage. I still need to add in a few more climbing toys for them but they've got a lot to do.

I'll be adding their weights tomorrow. Hopefully they'll be around the 150g mark.
