    I used to have a couple rats. Very smart, clean, friendly animals. Much nicer than hamsters or mice!

    I'm so glad they have people who love 'em. [​IMG] Unfortunately, I am not a great fan of rodentia. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    alot of people are afraid of them, they don't bite, its a common misconseption, mine never bit me, nor have any ive ever held at random stores, or ones that i find in the yard, they are really sweet, they evensit on your shoulder while we go to wal mart,kmart,etc anywhare all we do is put them on our shoulders and put our hair over so they are covered, the ussually just fall asleep:lol:
    btw- the top one is blind, not winking

    you should really check into getting rats, they are sweet, and if you have 2-3 they don't smell and they don't need special food theyre my favorite animal besides chcikens

    "I think mice are rather nice,
    Their tails are long, Their faces small,
    They haven't any chins at all.

    Their ears are pink, Their teeth are white,
    They run about the house at night.
    They nibble things they shouldn't touch,
    And no one seems to like them much.

    But I think mice are rather nice."


    Rats, too [​IMG]
    Cute pics!

    You must have females, because my males spray and it stinks. But I still like them a lot.

    Here are mine.....

    Love your rat pictures. I hear rats are really intelligent. Before Freebie got her barn kitty she had a big time problem in her barn. One time I went down to her barn and there were rats all over. It looked like a scene out of the movie Willard lol. Your rats are very cute tho. I never had a rat, butt when I was younger I had a hamster and gerbils.
