Rats make wonderful pets, whether it’s for the young or the old. They are fun, friendly and amusing and thrive on human contact so will love you for life. They are fairly easy to keep, a lot cheaper than a dog or cat, but don't forget that there will be some initial costs to consider. The cage is your main expense, as you need a large cage for these wonderful animals so they can do what they do best; run, play and explore. Once you have your rat set-up, feeding and bedding costs are minimal, but remember-as with all animals, vets bills will sometimes crop up so be prepared.
So if you have decided that you have the time, money, space and love to give a couple of rats (or more) then check out our Rattery and look at the residents page which is updated regularly with rats looking for loving forever homes.
