    Th only thing aboutrats is the poop constantly! You have to keep their cage clean or it smells pretty bad, but that is with any small animal though. So be sure you will have the responcability to keep the cage clean.

    Rats beat any small animal in freindlyness, and playfullness. Next to a ferret.




    They also require larger cages though, they NEED exercise and play, 2 rats minimum!

    Oh yea, try finding a rat rescue! I know its weird, but store bought rats are usually breed for eating and tend to get cancer. Hairless rats are really cute too!

    Females are more active, males are less active like to be lap rats. This also depends on age, and the rat its self, both my males are very active and just about 1 year old they love peas! I make their food usually too.

    Rats can be litter trained, (not pee, they just pee randomly, they have no control over it, but its usually just little dribbles)
    You can train them to do allsorts of little tricks they are really smart. I know some one who taught their rat too turn around in a circle, and to even come when their name is called. Best thing to do is let them trust you, let them chill in their fancy home for a day, play with them in their cage, let them get used to your hands/smell. When they climb up on your hand that means they trust you.
    DONT USE WOOD BEDDING. it can cause respiratory problems.

    I have two Blue hooded dumbos

    AK you can use Aspen bedding. It doesn't have the oils in it like pine and cedar and is safe for them. Just FYI not all wood bedding is bad.
