    I have two rats. Sarabi

    and vitani, I love them to death but I favor Sarabi more due to vitani who hates being held. Sarabi is well trained. Even though she's a couple months old she is able to jump from the floor to her cage. But how can I get vitani to like me, she literally hisses whenever I try to...

    I was given a pet rat

    for Christmas when I was 5, I never thought I'd love her as much as I did, they are as smart as dogs and as loyal/cuddly. I would let her run free in a field and I'd call "coco" and she'd come running up to me wherever she was and just sit on my knee until I'd place her on the...

    I had a rat years ago

    and i loved him. He was naughty, he would break out of his cage and get into my bed and crawl into my pj's to get warm, it was gross but funny and he would eat my underwear. I'd love to get more, they are so affectionate and cute:)

    They have a bad reputation

    because not many people have experienced having them as pets. They are extremely intelligent and loving creatures. They love to play. They can do tricks. They’ll make friends with any animal and can recognize their favorite people. They even give kisses. When we rescued...

    My amazing little man passed away on Wednesday.

    I had a really big day today and coming home to him not being there felt so strange. I'm so used to him being with me every hour of the day, sharing everything with him, talking to him, feeling his little whiskers and tiny heartbeat against me. The longer I go without him the...
