All right guys (& girls). Which rats do you prefer, male or female? In all honesty, I'm more for male rats. They smell bad, they make a mess, they refuse to use the litter tray (or mine do anyway) but they just seem to have more personality. They're lazy and fat and squishy and that just seems to be what I love. Another downside, however, is that the male rats tend to be more of little pests in terms of being a nuisance to the other boys. However, the one time I had girls they were a delight. So what'll it be, boys or girls?
