Bronchitis is going around my work. I have a sore throat. I'm not sure if it will develop into that or not (I plan on going to the doctor in the next few days) but I'm wondering if it's contagious for my little babes? I've been avoiding their cage as much as I can and covering my mouth with my shirt just to be on the safe side whenever I go to feed them and check up on them.

What are human illnesses that can be transmitted to rats?

No, you won't make them sick. Most human illnesses can't be transmitted to animals, because they only effect humans.
They can get ringworm from you but that's all I can think of but that's a fungal infection.

Thank goodness. I've been avoiding them as much as possible in fear that I'd get them sick. Poor little babies haha. I'll have to take them out tonight for free range since I know I can't get them sick. Thank you for taking the time to reply :)
