"@Gitali Regarding baths, I find my girls do best when I run about an inch of water in the tub and stand in there with them(bending down to wash them). The water should be very warm so they don't get chilled. A good thing about most tubs is that they are angled so the water is deeper by the drain, and shallow on the other end. That way your rats can get out of the water if they want, so it isn't so scary for them. I used to try and put them in the tub while I kneeled outside of it and reached over to wash them, but it was a nightmare. They flipped out and kept climbing up my arms and sitting wet on my shoulder. Then one day I discovered that all they wanted was for me to be in there with them! :) Once they're clean, have a big soft towel that they can burrow in until they're dry. One of my girls actually liked me to dry her off with the blowdryer (set on low power, and warm, not hot!). But it may scare your rats, so just figure out what they prefer. ^^"
