A Conversation for Keeping Rats as Pets
Simon H Draper Started conversation Sep 19, 2003
Personaly I think that your comment about the lifespan of a rat being 1-2 years and therefore needing no long-term commitment is a bad thing, Kids who might want one will see this and say hey! no need to worry it'll be dead in a year and get bored of it, as a rat fancier shower and soon to be breader with my wife with 23 rats 3 Rabbits and 2 Degus I find this to be bad, Also Shavings shouldnt be used with rats as they can cause problems with there breathing so if you love your rats as we do then use something that isnt going to harm them.
