For many months has my daughter wished for rats. I have to admit I wasn’t that happy with the thought. One part of me said, You have heard that they are intelligent and great pets. The other part of me said, Not in my home with ten dogs. And, Rats! They are kind of…. I couldn’t find the right word, only the feeling. Rats had been a long symbol of death and pestilence, they haunt our nightmares and scuttle in our walls, scaly tails dragging behind them. And rats cause billions of dollars in damage!!
However, my daughter had only one wish. The rats had to be adopted, not bought.
To my suprise, it wasn’t hard to find rats to adopt. Several families didn’t have the time anymore.
Spoons and Grace are now members of the AWL household team, educating us more about rodents.
They’re VERY social so it’s best to have more than one rat!
To be honest! I love them (my children and two of the dogs) They are incradable sweet, easy, intillegent and very clean– cleaner than a cat (true fact). When I enter the room they run to the cage door (cage is huge) and waits for me to open and take them out.
Never judge rats until you have really get to know them!
PS Thank you Diana for helping with the adoption.
