if your snake is that small the size rat you feed will not be big enough to do any damage , but if you can feed frozen thawed, use tongs and just swing the rat by the tail in front of snake and usually they will strike at it, if it strikes and releases swing again and when it hits pull back just a bit on it so that the snake thinks its alive

At the very least, move it up to 2 adult mice per feeding. I have babies, and that's what I feed them. 2 mice that are 1.5 times their girth. They never strike at me after they've eaten, because well... they are quite content with their fat bellies!
