  1. The problem with pet rats is that they only live for three years or so, even with the best of treatment. Just long enough to get really attached to them and then they are gone.

    Yes, I speak from experience.

    {{RIP Jinx, Bucky, Ratzo, and Muchacha Raton.}}

  2. There is a lot of this info that is wrong. Do not buy a pet rat based on this info alone. I have 11 rats at this point and time. They are actually pretty expensive animals to raise. Their food. If you want them to be healthy is in USA $16 a bag that last about 2 weeks if that's all you feed them. I feed mine a mix. So I spend the $16 pluse another $20 on groceries at the market. Then I also order what's called a block food it has all the vitamins and crap that they need to stay healthy that's another $60 every 2 months. Then there is all the fleece blankets you have to buy to keep their cage clean the ones I get are the cheapest I can find at walmart they're $2.50 each I buy about 5 a month, cause they chew through them like I am made of money LOL. Then there is this whole they dont get sick thing... they absolutely do get sick!!! My oldest boy got a respiratory infection 2 months after I brought him home. Cost me $150.00 US. I had to give him 2 different kinds of medications for 6 weeks.They said it was the change from the store to my house that make him sick. Said it dont take much and they will be deadly sick. Not very much longer after that he had babies thanks to the store not separating him from his sister whom we also bought. But one of those babies got a cough during the beginning of the Covid-19. I was stuck with home remedies cause the vet said they wouldnt see him unless it was life threatening. We got through it and he is fine now but the thing is they do get sick. Where do you think the phrase LAP RAT comes from? They can get pretty much anything you can. So if your sick stay away from your pet rats!! There are other things but I thing my comment is too much already!
