Im kind of a newbie when it comes to Rats But I was wondering something. I got Lilly a few months ago. Maybe June I think. She was an adoptee from Petco and the minute I looked at her face I knew she had to come home with me. I have had just her for quite some time now and the other day I went to petco and it happened again. It wasnt an adoptee but I looked into the medium male rat tank and there was this one hooded rat who as soon as seeing me and my bf walk up perked up and started getting real active. While all the others slept. He was just so awesome. So much personality. I felt the same way I had to have him. But I didnt get him. I figured I should ask people with experience first. SO I searched for a Rat Forum. I remember getting a lot of good advice from forums when I used to have Iguanas. So after all this talking I wanted to ask. If I were to get another rat. Would it be ok to have them in the same cage? I wouldnt want either one of them to get hurt or fight. Lilly has been on her own for a while I don't know if that will be a problem. From what I read rats like to have other rats around. And I want her to have some company when I am at work. But I dont know if she would be happy to have another one at this point. What do you think? What should I do?
