I have just got new Rat and we named her SuSu and I put her in the cage with our other rat that we had (Ling-ling (a girl). Well I had thought that they would get along and at first Ling-ling started to smell her and then i walked a way and she started to pick on her. I put Ling-ling in her ball to give SuSu time to get to know her new place. I got on this site and read about they habbits. thank you so much. without you i would not have known what to do and expect.

I love my raties. most people think that they bring diseasess and they think of sewer rats. If you are a person looking for a pet, it is perfect pet. Rats are dogs in a mini package!

Awwwwww! Snowflake looks just like my little Moonlight.
She's a albino rat too! My sister looked up on the
internet what was the best pet and the rat came up!
part of Moonlight's tail came off and she was crying
but she never bit me! She chatters all day long and
loves to sleep on my lap. :) and I agree with Laura,
Moonlight is the best rat I've ever had and I highly
recommend getting 1! their the best! (Moonlight was
the first pet I've ever had that lived over a week...
isn't that sad? Poor Whitey, Joy, Scribles & Nickels.) :(

Baby rats can be so cute, can't they! Well, I think both adults and babies are precious animals to own.

Rats are wonderful pets, but I don't agree with them being good pets for children- as their bite is very painful and they squirm quite a bit.
But rats are NOT cage pets, they need attention every day. I also think that rats get sick easily. Even the most cared for rats will probably contract cancer or myco later in their lives, and natural deaths are rare. However, they do have great personalities (much better than mice or hamsters) and are inexpensive. I very miss my two rats, which were like dogs and even came when their names were called.

Woo-hoo! I'm almost positive I'm going to get 2 rats soon and I absolutely can't wait! My friend has rats and she says they're freindly and adventerous! They're so easy to hold!
