[QUOTE=DaveyJones;874394] I would certainly recommend that over a nasty rat, yuck. (Sorry guys, but mice/rats only belong in traps or the mouths of snakes, IMHO)
This is not true. Rats are not nasty in any way. They are clean and very smart.
I have a rabbit back in Canada. It's a Mini Lop. He's really friendly and is potty trained to go in a litterbox. I have a guinea pig here and I'm working on potty training him this weekend, lol. Not as exciting as a rabbit, but still sweet I hope you find what you're looking for. Maybe you can try finding a rabbit at a shelter. Then you can help out a homeless bunny and you'd get a friend
