I've heard about the same. I atleast offer food during shed, if they take it they take it if not its fine. Atleast I am giving them the chance to eat. But they rarely ever refuse a meal.

Try to feed him tomorrow and see if this gets you anywhere. Your stress might be reflecting off of him.

If he doesnt eat wait a couple days. You don't want to be over doing the attempts to feed and further stress the boa.

Hoping to wake up, uncover the tank, and have no rat in there.
You could try putting the boa in a rubber maid container thats smaller then its enclosure but still not uncomfortable(With air holes ofcourse). When my carpet wasnt a strong feeder id leave her over night in a deli cup/ small container with the mouse/rat and it was usually gone the next morning.

Edit- the bold wasn't directed at Wiccan, just going off the post.
