Wonderful Pets, They Just Need to Live Longer!

I have had rats for pets for about the last 8 years. They are usually the most wonderful pets. I have had a couple that were not very social, almost completely scared of human contact no matter how much we try to socialize them. The rest were very friendly and lots of fun. My only problem with them as pets: they have such short lives! They break your heart too soon!

They can live anywhere from 3-5 years. I'm not sure what the maximum lifespan is.
