Elliriyanna I have only ever been bitten once ... Rats don't usually bite unless its an accident or if they are terrified My rats actually much prefer to lick my fingers

How do you get the rats not to bite? I've always thought they are intelligent little creatures. They are so cute!

Elliriyanna I am a big furry animal person .. That being said I don't like my cat lol I like african big cats

There are MANY species of rats however dumbo is not a species its just a gene

My Furry family

What other species of data are there? I know there are exotic mice but what about exotic rats?

Silmarwen I go through phases of wanting rats--my old roommate had a pair, and they were the sweetest things ever, but both sadly passed away due to health complications.

I'm more of a cat person, though. I like my pets big and fuzzy, if they're not tiny and scaly. xD

Elliriyanna No ... but she does eat plastic and headphones ... and hunt my boyfriend ... actually Emma is a story on why not to get a cat ... her vet bills have cost us A lot

Rats are very smart they all know their names but I have never taught them tricks or anything they are such love bugs

Sake No kitten pics! You're gonna make me go out and get a kitten. Such a cute kitten, is it a toe biter while ya sleep? Amusing to think that I actually miss my kittens doing that lol.

somewhatshocked Woah, your rat setup looks pretty cool.

They're pretty intelligent pets, aren't they?

Elliriyanna LOL My cat is Terrified of the rats. They LOVE her my sweet little Mei follows her around wondering what the heck her tail is. But since I got my oldest ( Apollo) and her at the same time and they were the same size Emma has learned rats are not toys and are not to be messed with, Add to that Apollo finds it fun to torture her and you get a cat who avoids rats.

She actually doesnt even bother my hamsters she just watches them and when they do escape ( its happened a few times ) With dwarf hams she brings them to me unharmed and with Syrian hamsters she just follows them around until I notice her odd behavior and put it back.

In fact the only thing she will kill are mice and even that she tries bringing me first.

UDGags Does your cat get along with the rats? I would think they would be dinner or play toys?

I actually get this a lot ... people typically think of big " nasty" wild rats but domestic rats are totally different and mine are love bugs

LOL Good luck eating them :P Mei likes to be in your mouth ... My friend taught her to be a rodentist ( Much to my dismay)

I have thought of that too but I have no idea how to start a Meme
