Domestic pet rats are very intelligent and clean animals. They constantly wash and groom themselves. Rats usually learn not to toilet outside their cage by about three months old. You don’t have to take them for walks. All you have to do is keep their cage clean, and give them some love and attention each day. They can be trained and will adapt to their surroundings very quickly. Pet rats are very social and are happiest when living with other rats. It is strongly recommended to adopt a minimum of two rats at a time. Rats should be kept only with other rats of the same sex! It is strongly recommended to leave rat breeding to the experts, it is not for amateurs.

Well socialized rats are capable of forming a real bond with their owners, and act more like miniature puppies than anything else. Our males really enjoy a cuddle, and are ready to doze off in your lap. Females are generally more active, and provide mischief and entertainment. Having said this, each one has their own personality, and their own little habits. Our rats have become attached to their pet humans, and beg to come out of their cage and play, or just ride around on our shoulders.

DO NOT pick up a rat by its tail, it is very dangerous to the rat. Always use two hands when possible to pick up a rat, one around its torso and one supporting its hind feet. Do not feed rats through the bars in the cage as the rat may get confused and bite a finger near the cage. Always announce yourself to your rat when you want to touch it. Rats have very poor eyesight and may not see you approaching. This also helps to make sure the rat is awake and not startled into biting.

For anyone unsure about rats i suggest you just stop and take a look into their cute little faces! Rats make wonderful pets, they make great Friends. It is common amongst the rat community to say that “You are owned by your rats”, instead of saying “you own rats.” As once you fall completely in love with your rattie friends it is very common they take charge and boss you around rather than you bossing them around! 🙂 Once you get a rat you can never go back -most people are hooked for life and will never be ratless again!
