Sounds familiar? This is what most people say when they meet a rat close up. I know most of you think that a rat is plain dirty, spread diseases and bites people. But not all. A captive rat is one of the best pets to be kept. They come in a few different colours and they like to be cuddled. And most of all, they don't spread diseases. If you observe a captive rat, you often see them grooming themselves. They like cleanliness and sometimes are observed to drop their feaces at a spot.
I know all this because I have a pet rat at home. If you are tired of wild animals, this might brighten you up.
Enjoy the pictures of my rat.
"What is that strange flash of light?"
Examining the sofa after 'reading' the newspaper.
"Oops... There is a spot on my fur. Time to groom myself."
"Is that irritating flash of light again! Wonder what that human is doing."
Ok... My rat is complaining. I will stop here.
