They are safe, although might not be the best choice. I have fed cooked potatoes to my rats at times. The ketchup won't hurt them either although again maybe not the best choice especially if it has lots of sugar in it. Mine don't really love them. They prefer greens, cucumbers, green beans, lettuce (mine don't like iceberg) asparagus.

Aren't stale french fries one of natural food groups eaten by rats in the wilds of fast food parking lots and dumpsters around the world? I'm thinking baked potatoes would mostly be preferred by up scale fancy rats.

While never passing up on a french fry, my girls do prefer their baked potatoes with butter and sour cream.... Actually they just prefer butter and especially sour cream and don't much care what it's on.

Potato's are decent food if not smoothered in junk. Especially if they have the skins on them.

Though all my rats snub them. The love leafy greens, though spinach is kinda whatever to them, the rest are yum.
