Thinking ahead to when I get home from hospital...my rats love climbing on my neck and shoulders and chest. I have had a throat op and so obviously have a wound there held together with staples. They'll be taken out in about a week .is it safe to let the rate climb on me or are they likely to try and worry the wound at all? I will have a dressing on it but I know they have a good sense of smell. I can't wear any tops with a high neck as I find them uncomfortable.
