they are basically the closest we will ever get to a pet hybrid of a cat and a dog

they can be litter trained like a cat
but they can learn almost all the tricks dogs can learn (except maybe sit because they are too fat and close to the ground XD)
they also love cuddles and shoulder rides

but rather than just telling you this
check out some videos I found endearing ^^


being cuddly:………

and that is why I love rats to death~

soooooooooooooo true!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! my rat is soooooooooooooo super sweet, and she's totally cool with any other pet (unless it's another rat, then she gets jealous... XD)

you keep a rat alone?? thats animal cruelty, if you do.
Please inform yourself how to properly do an integration between rats because they NEED at least 2 buddies for their social life which is usually in big big groups.
You should get rats from a shelter btw, not a pet shop...

She's alone because her sisters died, and now she's become a diva

:/ poor girl.. She still needs a rattie friend..
Maybe she needs a bit longer to get integrated with other rats. But it is possible, shes still a rat.
I wish yoou and your rat luck.

Rats are awesome!! I wish I had one, but we can't get any right now because my mom is terrified of mice and rats. Not guinea pigs though lol. I remember when I was little, I was watching a show how rats could sniff out explosives. I thought that was pretty cool.

Rat's are so cute! I've been wanting one for a while, but I don't really have time for pets of any kind :(
