I want to get some rats really bad! !! they're really cute, but mainly their attitude is just what im looking for in a pet!! ! but, my mom doesnt like rats and doesnt want one in the house, especially more than one... ! I got 3 books on rats and have been reading them a bunch, then telling her about them. i have odne a lot of research on the internet, and even wrwote a book on them that she read! but she still isnt convinced that they aren't like the wild ones on the streets in new york and stuff. how do i convince her that she is totally wrong on rats, and to convince her to let me get one? . i have enough money to get all the things needed for the rats, including the rats. any advice?
