Re: Some of the rats I have lol

[ Edited ]

Hi @liggerz87 ... thank you for this thread ... I live very near a canal & was frightened by a wild brown rat caught up in fencing not 12"/18" from my face 

The darker of the 2 rats you show in your video has a beautiful shiny coat 

May I ask some questions ... Do the creatures damage your home? ... I thought I saw a cardboard box nibbled at one corner ... How do they pee n poop? do they have a litter tray like cats(my cat Marty insists on going outsie for this sort of thing) ... he also strops on every step of the carpeted stairs right through to the wood floor & gripper strips ... Do they cuddle up together for sleeping? ... Marty sleeps on my bed / under radiator in spare bedroom / in a cupboard on the landing

You've taken away my fear of rats somewhat, thank you

Hi @liggerz87 ... it sounds like you love your pet rats very much ... I've had cats for many years & as I live on my own now they are very good company - I couldn't do without one = a cat makes my house a home Cat Very Happy ... I'd say your pets are warm to touch & stroke their fur Smiley Happy
