Rats are great pets. They are smart and social. They are mostly people-oriented and tame.As a rule, rats enjoy being petted and, contrary to preconceptions, rats are not dirty.
Before you get rats, you should know that they have a distinct smell. They need daily activity in a rat safe environment outside the cage.
A large cage with climbing facilities is a must have.
Because rats are pack animals, they must be kept in threes - more is always better!
Inform yourself before you get rats on the Internet, buy books and contact the animal shelter
Another important point. There are a lot of animals in sanctuaries. Give these animals a chance do not buy from breeders or pet shops!
