Is it a common rattie trait for them to be completely obsessed with burrowing under a blanket??  Our baby rattie, Bandit, was a stray that we adopted from a shelter.  He is absolutely OBSESSED with gathering himself into a blanket tightly (completely covered) and happily going off to lala land.  Most adorable thing ever!  We figured he was doing this as a security thing.....now I'm curious to know if it is just a rattie normalcy?? 



Yep, absolutely.  In fact, when mine go to the pet resort, their "concierge" knows that they need a couple of extras for burrowing.

This is a known Rattie trait, they are burrowing dogs.  Even ones that don't normally want under sometimes find their way under anyway.  Our Nala is a "spaghetti" twister, she twirls around until she has both the bottom and top just right, tightly wound, self-swaddling maybe.

Yep, they do love their blankies. We own lots more dog blankets and dog beds than we have dogs.....

YES!!   This is exactly what our Bandit does!!  He has to get it just right and then he "plops" down with a heavy sigh.  He is so smart.... we have even watched him take a blanket from the floor in his teeth, throw it up so it lands on his head and then launch himself onto the couch with it over his head and then he begins the "swaddling" process on the couch............of course it is at that restful moment that his little brother puppy, Chase, jumps up to play and tries to take his blankie!  Thanks for all the replies!

 Janie, we have two ratties and 7 dog beds, not including the king sized one that is nominally OURS.  Oh, and they always have to squeeze into the same bed at the same time.

Mardi likes towels, she likes to tug and wrestle and get dried off, rub her face, chin and neck off on a floor towel
but she does not bury herself in blankies.

( but she has never been on our bed either)

Yep, it's funny though cuz my male Midnite loves blankets, any kinda blankets, thicker the better....I've even caught him after taking clothes out of dryer and put on couch....only to return and he is wrapped up in the warm clothes....Really???? LOL....Then my female, Sugar is the opposite...She likes to have the really warm, expensive blankets to sit/sleep on, but no wrapping for her....I got her from a high school student that "just didn't have the time" so she is a bit different....She's always scared, if I pick her up to go outside, she hurridly rolls to the floor, belly up and pees....Not sure why, but we are working on it....Gotta love em!!!

My daughter & I gave our new rattie puppy (Madeline) a few of her many soft baby blankets. (Not the keepsake ones!) Maddie loves them! She turns around, nudges them and pushes them around with her snout until she's comfy. When Sabrina (my daughter) asks what she's doing, I tell her that Maddie is 'nesting'.

Oh my goodness! Mine does the same thing...she even has a stuffed animal she sleeps with. She falls asleep with her blanket or bunny in her mouth and has her paws around it, and kneads it like a cat! Funny :-)

This is so funny! Mikey takes over every throw I get to go on our sofa. He holds it in his mouth and kneeds it like a cat...lol! He will burrow under it and when he jumps down he'll still have it draped over his back and walk around the house. We call it his "robes"
