Is Owning A Pet Rat Right For You?

When you tell someone your contemplating obtaining a rat for your family generally folks’s first reaction is this weird look on their face and they say “Yuck! Why?” “Their tales are scary looking!” They are frequently linked with scary and filthy things.

Here you can read and choose for your self if possessing a rat is ideal for you and your family members.

Unfortunately folks are poorly educated when it comes to these extremely clever critters . They only know what history has claimed them as being, a disease infested, nasty, annoying rodent that eats all your food and bites people for fun. When in reality, the domesticated rat (a.k.a. Rattus Norvegicus) are physiologically and psychologically different from their untamed relatives. The rat has no more health risks to people than any other pet..

Their tails might not be the cutest thing to look at but they help the rat to balance themselves. Speaking from experience, you don’t actually notice them or pay attention to them mainly because you’re to busy looking at those cute faces and big dumbo ears!

Dumbo/fancy rats are basically the same thing. The dumbo rat just has bigger ears than the fancy rat.. You will want to buy your rats in pairs so they can keep each company when you cant. You should buy rats in same sex pairs or you will have a bunch of rattie babies!!!!

Typically a rats lifespan is approximately 2 years but of course that can change if treated properly and they are maintained well. Size: 7-10″ body, plus 6-8″ tail.

Rats are very are the smartest of all small pets!!! If taken the time, rats can learn their name and come to it! Unfortunately, rats do have an odor to them. Ideally, their litter and caged should be cleaned every couple of days to help keep odors away, once a week at the latest. This does not just pertain to rats it’s with any caged animal.. So if your not to keen on small animal odors then rats may not be for you, or any other caged animal..

Once all the essentials are purchased, maintanence is fairly inexpensive. You will need a rat habitat to house your furry critter, bedding, food bowls and sipper style water bottle, fortified fancy rat diet, chew toys, exercise ball and wheel. Rat guides and training books are very beneficial. Please look under the buy rat supplies tab to see everything you need to maintain your new rat.

In my opinion, rats are the perfect pet! No having to take your rats on midnight walks because nature calls.. Rats are fairly cheap and inexpensive to keep. They will fit and adapt to any size home. They’re big on personality and real people pleasers! They are great candidates for training because they have great memory and problem solving skills.…
