Actually, this is a little dangerous for your snake. If they're not hungry and do not eat it soon enough the rats can become crazy and kill your snake or at least do a lot of damage
My ex use to live feed. I told him time and time again that it was dangerous and he should stick to frozen thawed, or at least stay with the rat while he fed it. He didn't and one day the snake didn't eat the rat. Several hours later when he went to check on the rat there were huge gouges taken out of the snakes body, I took it to the vet but it was too late, the snake died on the way there.
I'd be nervous that the rat would eventually turn on the snake. Be wary, OP.
