I really want a rat...advice?
Ok so when I worked in a local pet store last year...someone dropped off two male rats at the door. It was either kill them or take them home, since a store in my city could get in *huge* trouble having live rats, even have a business license revoked. So I took them in, but they died a couple of months ago, they were older.
They weren't the most tame of rats, but I have heard only good things about them. I *really* want another one. Thing is, they are illegal where I live. I could drive 45 mintues and pick up some sweet hand tamed babies, but I don't know if I should feel bad doing so. I can't see any reason they would be discovered, the other ones never were. The only thing I am worried about is having to drive 50 minutes to the nearest vet. In an emergency, It would be tough, I have a setup for two rats already...i just need the rats. It's soo tempting!
What do you think??
Also, would two females be better than two males? Do the two sexes really behave differently?
