Rats! I've had rats, mice, hamsters, and gerbils, and rats are definitely my favorite.

I got a valentine!

3 cats, Yazi, Bit, and Thunder
8 rats, Bob, Cocoa, Zara, Kennit, Aviendha, Skewer, Bean, and Raleigh
3 mice, Briella, Sophie, and Jackson

I said Guinea pig, because thats what I have. I would definatly say they are not the best for everyone, they are more expensive and take up a lot of room if taken care of properly.

They are well worth it, of course.

Rats! Not that I do not love my little hamster guy, but he is more adventorous and leave me alone rather than the ratties. Rats are like miniature doggies!

I've had rats, piggies and now have mice. Mice have to have been the easiest.

I have to go with Scarlette. Prairie dogs. Once I got prairie dogs I told myself flat out that if I had a prairie dog years ago, I probably never would have even considered other rodent pets.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
