They love being handled and it is easy for children to care for them and to keep them clean.
Here I must add that I recommend keeping female rats for pets, a male rat is smelly and he spends his time marking everywhere he goes to make sure that any female who might pass will smell him.
Pardon this remark all male rats, but that is a fact.
Life will be somewhat different for the rat, depending whether a girl or a boy adopted her.
We would like to thank you...
This is life !? It is heaven.
