How many rats do you have ? two for now
What are there names and sexes ? Watson and Mycroft, both boys.
Where did you get them ? Amazon Reptile (honestly, their feeder rats are healthier and live longer than any pet store rats around here)
How old are they ( if you dont know just leave blank ) ? less than six months
What type of cage do you have for them ? coast cage
Are they active or lazy ? both. they sleep a lot, but they also like to be monkeys and climb on the cage, and run in their wheel.
What type of personalitys do they have ? Mycroft is a piggie, and is always looking for snacks. Watson is kind of dumb, sometimes I think he's blind or something, he's just oblivious to everything. He's very squishy. Mycroft tries to eat my fingers a lot.
Are any of your rats agressive ? Mycroft tries to eat my fingers, but I think he thinks they are food, I don't think he's being mean. Its still scary, though...
What food do they like best ? They like whatever I give them... I've only had them a few weeks, and haven't given them much variety yet.
What food do they hate ? I haven't found anything they won't eat
Where do you keep them in there own room or somewhere else ? they live in my room, which is where all of my non-cat friendly critters live.
How often do you bathe them ? I haven't yet, they keep each other fairly clean,
How many times a day do you let them out ? two or three times, basically whenever I'm bored and want some rattie lovin'
How long are they out for ? a few minutes at a time, my room isn't very rat-friendly right now, so I can't let them out for very long
What are the good points of having a rat ? they are like little monkey-dogs. They are very smart, and friendly, and super adorable.
What are the bad points of having a rat ? a squeaky wheel at night...
Do all your family members like them or are they scared LOL ? my mom "hates" rodents. She used to wake me up each morning bringing treats to my girls when I had them, though... She just says she hates them, i think. My brother really is scared of them, sometimes I'll walk into his room, and hold one of them in front of his face, and he screams. its really funny. He's 17, is over 6 feet tall, and he's afraid of cute little rats. My dad doesn't know about them. My sister is allergic to them, so she can't hold them, but its not really an issue since she has her own house.
If you could write a comment about rats how would you describe them ? monkey-dogs.
Best memory you have had with your rats ?
Funniest thing they have ever done ? the other day I got a silly picture of Watson turning his head upside-down. it was really cute.

4 cats: Radar, Oscar, Mackintosh, Qwilleran
1 dog: Daphne
3 rabbits: Barbarella Bunny. DC's Lucy, Ricky
1 daddy-long leg spider: Spidey
8 assorted tarantulas
1 madagascar hissing cockroach: Lady
3 chickens
1 ball python: Eve
1 corn snake: Charisma
1 California kingsnake: Honey
1 tortoise: Charlie

How many rats do you have ?
I have two rats.

What are there names and sexes ?
Kenshin and Yuki. They are both males.

Where did you get them ?
The local pet store in my town.

How old are they ( if you dont know just leave blank ) ?
I don't know. They've grown since I've got them.

What type of cage do you have for them ?
180 gallon terrarium. (4ft X 2 ft x 2ft)

Are they active or lazy ?
They are only active after two in the morning and settle down for a lazy day after six in the morning.

What type of personalitys do they have ?
Yuki is a very timid rat. He doesn't come out of his house or boxes very often unless it is pretty quiet. He loves shoulders and playing in my hair. Kenshin loves standing up and looking at people. He is very dominent and loves to explore and type on the computer keyboard.

Are any of your rats agressive ?
No.

What food do they like best ?
They love their papaya yougert treats and fresh carrot sticks.

What food do they hate ?
If they hate any type of food, I haven't found it yet.

Where do you keep them in there own room or somewhere else ?
They are in my room.

How often do you bathe them ?
I haven't really had to yet.

How many times a day do you let them out ?
Once or twice a day.

How long are they out for ?
As long as I have time for! So it varies with what is going on in the house.

What are the good points of having a rat ?
They are sweethearts. They are always happy to see you. They have so much personality. They are so very very very cute!!!! Did I mention that they are cute?

What are the bad points of having a rat ?
Bad points.....bad points..... Hmmm. I buy them the really good food and yesterdays news for their cage since they are allergic to aspen. So it can get pricey.

Do all your family members like them or are they scared LOL ?
My husband and daughter LOVE our rats! If you teach your children young that ALL animals are wonderful, then you don't have any problems. The rest of my pet family members either don't love them so much (gerbils, mice) or love them too much (cats).

If you could write a comment about rats how would you describe them ?
They are wonderful family pets. They are gentel and playful. Most rats are good with kids. They are loving and are very similar to having a dog. Except you don't have to walk them in the rain!

Best memory you have had with your rats ?
My best memory with my rats was when I won Yuki's trust. That wasn't easy by any means. It took a very long time. But the first time he took a treat from me was a time I will never forget.

Funniest thing they have ever done ?
I had given my two boys a Whopper candy milk carton. Yuki and Kenshin loved it so much, they tried to fit it into their plastic igloo house. It wouldn't fit, so they nibbled the top off and wedged it about 2/3 of the way in. When I looked at Kenshin through the chewed off top, he looked at me like he was so proud of himself! It was so adorable!

How many rats do you have ?
I have 5.

What are there names and sexes ?
Bubbles, Archimedes, Jack and Louie are my boys. Mikiboo is the last of my 5 girls.

Where did you get them ?
Bubbles from a Petsmart that I worked at. Archimedes from Petco. Jack and Louie from a breeder. Mikiboo from a breeder who worked at a mom&pop shop before they switched owners, fired everyone, hired morons and started selling puppies >_<. (As you can tell I'm not happy with them lol.)

How old are they ( if you dont know just leave blank ) ?
Mikiboo is 3 years old. Bubbles is 1 year (DOB: March 27, 07). Archimedes will be 1 yr on July 30th. Jack and Louie are 7 weeks.

What type of cage do you have for them ?
The boys are in a gigantic, wrought iron sugar glider/finch cage. Mikiboo is in small, single level cage due to her disabilities.

Are they active or lazy ?
The three older rats are super lazy, and the two babies are balls of energy.

What type of personalitys do they have ?
Mikiboo is old. She's very mommy-like. She loved her sisters and took care of each one of them when they got old and sick. She would take them the best food from the food dish and put it in a neat pile right in front of them so that they didn't have to get up. She groomed them, and even helped them walk sometimes -- even when she herself had a hard time walking. She's not very mobile anymore and has trouble walking with her back legs. She's also gone deaf =(. But she's hanging in there.

Bubbles is bubbly and squishy. He doesn't walk or waddle -- he bounces.
Archimedes is extremely intelligent. When he was only 2 months old he found a way to walk all the way around my room without ever touching the floor.
Jack is twitchy. He loves to play! He will play with anything that wiggles.
Louie is a lover. He loves to snuggle and give kisses. He's a character, I'll tell ya. He's got me wrapped around his little finger. Every time he sniffles or sneezes I run to pick him up, and he'll curl up by my side and fall asleep. Right now he's got himself stretched out on my leg.

Are any of your rats agressive ?
Not at all. Unless "lick" and "to death" would be considered aggression.

What food do they like best ?
SHHH! Don't say food! I'm sure they'd eat chili peppers without complaint.

What food do they hate ?
NOTHING. The little fatties...

Where do you keep them in there own room or somewhere else ?
In my room ^_^

How often do you bathe them ?
I never bathe them. If their tails are gunky I'll take a damp paper towel to it.

How many times a day do you let them out ?
Every night.

How long are they out for ?
All night.

What are the good points of having a rat ?
They love you eternally. No matter what you do to them, or what trauma they've been through... if given the right person they can overcome even the worst of things. They give me the feeling of friendship that no other human can give me -- the kind that they will listen any time there's something wrong, and give kisses every time you hold them. The knowledge that they will never abandon you -- only you can abandon them. And the fact that they love you for simply being you.

What are the bad points of having a rat ?
There are none. If you can't take the bad, you don't deserve the good. Even being piddle-marked doesn't bother me any more. I figure that's what soap is for.

Do all your family members like them or are they scared LOL ?
My family loves my rats.

If you could write a comment about rats how would you describe them ?
The fastest way to their hearts is through their stomach.

Best memory you have had with your rats ?
There are no best memories. I love every single memory with my rats, even the worst ones. Although I will never forget how Mizune used to stand on the edge of the couch and "dance" every time I looked at her.

Funniest thing they have ever done ?
The time Totoro jumped in the toilet XD! She never did that again, and the icky boys never left the toilet seat open either! LOL

Well none of the kids are afraid, I'd say some adults and my nanny, but that is all.

If you could write a comment about rats how would you describe them?
The smallest dog in the world!!

Best memory you have had with your rats?
So many, too many to name!! Well one would be when I had hairless rats. Me and my cousin took the last four who was living at the pet store for at least a year, no one wanted them so we paid 2 for 1.

I took one of them out on a LONG walk as the other boy did not like being out too long. He got to see nature and animals, like ducks, pigeons and seagulls. He love that day out, he got to see REAL nature for once in his short life. He was tuckered out on the way home. I have a photos here. It was memorable as he never seen this for years, only the cage and fake light. His brother also went out but not too far.




Look at his face!!








Another happy face




What IZ this thing??




Tuckered out!!

Funniest thing they have ever done?
Again too many!!

How many rats do you have--31
What are there names and sexes--6 females (Lucy the PEW, Peaches the beige berk, Gretel the dumbo agouti rex, Izzy the double rex dumbo, and Agatha and Agnes the white and brown dumbo barebacks.) 5 males (Merlin the PEW, Figgy the Brown and white dumbo hooded, Rat Fink the double rex, Quinton gray and white dumbo, and Lecter red eyed brown and white dumbo) and 20 unsexable babies
Where did you get them--Two from petstores, 9 from friends and private breeders, 20 from our breeding project

How old are they--wide range of ages
What type of cage do you have for them--several different cages depending on needs and personality of the rats
Are they active or lazy--Girls are very active, boy are very lazy
What type of personalitys do they have--Broad range, I have two fairly skittish ones, two cuddly love muffins who just want to be with me, two acrobats that love to learn tricks and commands, and several very lazy food motivated boys.
Are any of your rats agressive--Right now Agatha is in defense of her new babies, but usually none of them areWhat food do they like best--Mostly they like to have lots of variety
What food do they hate--This one pellet food I tried a couple of weeks ago, every single one of them went hungry to avoid it.
Where do you keep them in there own room or somewhere else--They and the guinea pigs are in the rodent room
How often do you bathe them--Rarely, I don't usually find it necessary. The exception is the hairless who get bathed and oiled down every few weeks.
How many times a day do you let them out--That depends on the day, as often as possible, but probably less now that I'm hand feeding babies.
How long are they out for--Again that depends on the day and the rat. I have some that can stay out a long time without making messes or getting completely away from me, others are still working on training.
What are the good points of having a rat--intelligence, sweetness, appearance, fun
What are the bad points of having a rat--cage cleaning, life span
Do all your family members like them or are they scared LOL--They're warming up. My husband loves them though.
If you could write a comment about rats how would you describe them--Definitely the best mammals to have as pets, smart, trainable, sweet and clean
Best memory you have had with your rats--Every moment with Boris my first hairless rat (R.I.P Boris)Funniest thing they have ever done--Hard to say, every day is a circus with them. Just last night my two hugest boys cuddled up together in a house that was barely big enough when they were 6 weeks old, it was hilarious with little bits of rat butt sticking out on every side, looked like a clown car.
