The animals became bonded to us. The animals were conditioned so just like a little child where you tickled them in a friendly way and then you can tickle them just symbolically with a kitchy-kitchy-coo and a threat, a friendly threat and they laugh and run and these rats would conditioned in the same way. And if we had some special smell on our hands like coffee, coffee became a very valuable smell in the environment, the animals would look for it. If you looked at one room that was the tickle room, the other room was a no tickle room.
