I used to have pet rats and I loved them to bits. Cute little things.    
Then I moved to Alberta, where it's supposedly 'rat free' (legit. It's illegal to own them, and if you see them you have to call this service to come and kill them. It's 			*******		 ridiculous) and when I tell people I had pet rats they look at me like I'm on meth.    
How the hell do you keep an entire province rat free?

Well domesticated rats are fine, but non-domesticated are full of disease and just don't look good. And unfortunately some people aren't the most responsible with pets like that that can be just 'set free' when they don't want them anymore.

Why does everyone on FJ have at least two rats?

I've heard that rats are social creatures and get lonely if you keep them on their own, so it makes sense that all the people who are showing their rat pictures would show both of them (someone tell me if the rat thing is ******** btw)
User avatar #65 to #54 - shumdek ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
It's not, rats have a tendency to get lonely if not kept in pairs. However, if you only have one it's fine as long as you keep it company every day, have it up and cuddle it for a few hours a day. If you have only one rat it needs a lot more interraction than if you have two.

Pet store rats are usually **** , imbred to the extreme, will probably only live less than a year, and really only good for snake food. Plus all they ever have are normal-eared, normal coat, black hooded rats. True rat breeders are where it's at!

I mean, look at this cute little bastard I made.

Awww. Can I have him? :)
User avatar #66 to #35 - shumdek ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
That really depends on what pet stores you visit tbh. At least here in Denmark pet stores have seperate rat breeds. We have food rats for snakes etc, and then we have actual pet rats. The pet rats are in great condition, and live to see more than one year.

Denmark could be totally different, I don't know about shops there and you're right, even here in America there are -some- pet stores that have good rats. I'm mainly talking about most of the big chain pet stores here like Petco and Petsmart.
User avatar #79 to #76 - shumdek ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Never buy from the big chains ._. rule number one. Theyre horrible.
#80 to #79 - dandyhandy **User deleted account** (04/10/2013) [-]
Exactly. Applies to all animals, especially exotics. Ferrets with ear mites, lizards with coccidia, birds with RI, etc etc.
User avatar #81 to #80 - shumdek ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Aye, the big chains don't care enough. we have a big chain that keeps the "daycare" animals that they keep for people on vacation, in the same room as quarantine animals. They also treats apprentices they get like **** . Big chains are horrible. ^^

Ugh, I couldn't imagine leaving my animals in the care of a pet store. I have rats snakes, lizards, a dog, and fish and I buy absolutely nothing from pet stores. I don't give them my business at all for those reasons.
User avatar #83 to #82 - shumdek ONLINE (04/10/2013) [-]
Well, I would, if it was a small shop that I to some degree know. Because those are actuallly somewhat trustable.

Rats have disproportionately large balls.

Once had two pet rats. Both females.

Unfortunately I learned female rats are prone to tumors. One had a benign tumor and lived awhile after getting it. The other was malignant. I loved them though, and they lived happy lives.

(Picture relevant: picture of one of my rats, unfortunately low quality due to the fact I don't have a digital copy, or a scanner)

it kinda looks like he was trying to suck himself when he pinched a nerve and blacked out. It happens all the time, right? right?
