A Conversation for Keeping Rats as Pets

I'm not really here

Rats are more intelligent than dogs. The first rat I had often had the run of my flat. (Not always as he was vey small and I didn't want him trodden on.) He learnt to come when he was called, not to chew things he wasn't supposed to, and to tightrope walk. I believe they can even be taught to "read". Simple symbols only of course.

Unfortunately, this intelligence is the reason why so many of them are found in research laboratories. smiley - sadface

There is a brand of rat food that has meat in it, kind of like a dry dog food, but for rats. Reggie's I think it's called, and it's a bit more expensive than the veggie only food. I gave my rat bits of chicken quite often.
