That seem's to sum you up in one line.
Meet Toffee & Fudge, Toffee's the albino.
awww cute, lovely names too
Aww and to the snobby people in this thread, stfu or get out. If you hate rats then why come in this thread??
I've actually changed my views on rats.
Those are really cute pics in this thread.
I've had hamsters and guninea pigs before when I was younger. Rats I've never liked or disliked just never considered them.
They are cute though.
they want to teach the rest of us that we are poor misguided fools.
Very cute things
I would have called one Borat.
Lol! That's genius
I think they're cute
I know one, (well he isnt a student any more)
then speed off in your little Micra? Man everything I see you post makes me angry.
There's a difference between pet rats and vermin. Although both the same species Rattus Norvegicus or "brown rat", they have been bred in completely different environments. There's another species of wild rat, Rattus Rattus, the "black rat", which are not kept as pets. Pet rats are clean, domesticated, intelligent and friendly. Pet rats are not vermin and have the same animal welfare protection of any other pet.
One of my mates keeps a fair number of rats, nice wee things.
Couple of them got cancer recently though.
i've already had one called holly
and vermin comments are not welcome, please keep them somewhere else.
unfortunately female rats will 90% die of tumors or respitory failure, but thats just the way of the world.
Rats are cute, intelligent and loyal. Unlike most other types of domestic rodent (hamster, mouse, gerbil), they actually *love* human attention and will play games and respond to their names when called. They're as good as dogs in that respect.
I'm going to get my first 3 boys from a local breeder (will have come from a healthy lineage, and been handled from a young age) around early October. I plan to call them Roffle (as a nod to ROFL), Mousey and Dave.
I want some pet rats called roffle and jaypeg and haxorings***ebag now lol
They're awesome! My cousin has a couple and everytime I go round, they come right up to the cage and stay there until you take them out.
Do you just let them run rampant about your house?
nope, they have a cage thats about 1m x 1m x 80cm thats got a bunch of floors, ropes and the like in it.
When i'm in the room with them I leave their door open so they can come out - but thats the thing with rats - they don't seek to escape or hide behind furniture, they just sniff around then go back.
Separate names with a comma.
