hiya mommabayer ... long time no see !!! how have you been ?
i have never had a pet rat but from what i hear from those that do they make great pets. they are very intelligent and in the little critter magazine i get once in awhile it says they are the best pocket pets for children.
every body is fine and so am i, i got 5 wild baby rats from a girlfriend that works at a food recycling plant, the mother got hit by a tow motor and got killed she felt sorry for the babys, i happened to be there and she gave them to me knowing i had rats when i was younger an even had two or three litters. But these ones are wild rats and this is a new experiance for me, they are only 3-5 days old, i have had them now for 3 days. I am feeding them kitten formula i purchased from the pet store.
does anybody have any advice or suggestions how to raise them. I already know how to make them pee and poo.
i had a rat named charlize. she was the best pet i have ever had. i got her a local pet store. they told me she was hand raised or born or whatever. she passed away awhile back i had her for two years she died from a respatory infection. she would not jump of of anything high. so she was never really in her cage. she would just chill with me on the couch. lol and she was semi-potty trained. she would even play with you, you scratch something like the surface she would run and attack your finger then run and hide and do it again. i love her very much. and miss her. rip charlize!
