If after 5 mins it still isn't all that interested, give the snake a gentle poke/bump with the rat about 1/3 way down it's body from the head. This is a good way of tempting carpets to constrict the prey even if they haven't struck for it.
You should be able to tell if the snake is interested in trying to give it a cuddle or if it's backs off, obviously if the latter happens then quit poking it.
Thank-you, will do!
