Rat - "Rats"

I don't have any rats, but I want one. My family is this of getting a pet rodent, but my mom thinks rats are gross, and mean, and that it is not "normal" to have a pet rat. What is "normal" anyway?

I have rats too, my s male rats are so adorable and I am so grateful for them. A Couple months ago, one of the rats started to get small scabs on his neck and middle back, and I was really scared about him. I didn't really want to go to the vet because I knew it was going to cost a lot so I just researched what to do (bathe almost everyday, clean cage a little more and don't give him any grains). So after a month or so, IT FINALLY WENT AWAY and I was so happy! ahhh, i've never really told anyone the full story before lol. Hows life? My day was pretty good today, and yesterday, I had basically no work at school because it was the day before thanksgiving break which was great definitely in high school.

Rat - "I want a rat , but how can I persuade my parents to get me one?"

To those who love rats, and want one, I have some tips. First, write a cute letter on reasons why your parents should let you get a rat. Give them the letter, have them read it, and discuss it. Second, write down facts about rats. Third, write down things they can eat, and can't eat. You need to show your parents that you know what they can eat and what they shouldn't eat, so you can make sure they know you can feed it and care for it's health. Fourth, go to the nearest spot where lots of people go to. Like a supermarket, where people get food, and they go there often. That is somewhere where people will notice you. Ask the manager if you can set up a table for donations for a rat. Tell him or her that you want to help rats without a home. Give the donation service a cool name. When you get lots of money, go to a animal shelter and donate money to the rats for supplies. Fifth, get a job to take care rats. Always make sure you know the person before going to their house. It could be for a friend, neighbor, or reletive. When they go away, ask them if you could occasionally come and take care of the rat. That will show your parents you can take care of the pet. The customer may ask you some questions about you. Always answer correctly, or you might do things you can't do, and hurt the rat. You want to treat it like a baby. Pretend it is your great grandmother's favorite vase, and you were told to hold it for a while. hat is all the tips I will write down, so for more, please come write to me at REF # 570005 USA. Thank you!

That's not necessary. Rats are scavangers. They eat what they can find. You don't need to give your rat less sugar or whole wheat bread. In the wild they would take what ever they could get. I have 3 pet rats that love chocolate. I don't feed them lots of it but I give it as a treat. They are fine and healthy.

Rat - "I Love Rats, Even Though You May They're Gross"

I used to have two rats named Sweetie and Punkin. I was so sad when they died but, there were a lot of advantages against them being gross and all that stuff. First of all, rats are so cute and cuddly, and they even do well with dogs. But the thing was they only lived two to three years, but I made the best of it and they like to chew on stuff in the house, like the buttons on your remote. They were really nice and they didn't bite or anything. So now, after experiencing having rats they've become my favorite animals and I hope you've gotten a few tips on rats the next time you'd like to get one at the pet store. Rats
