My stepmom got mad at me the other day because there was rat poop on the floor (They only poop under their cage though, so maybe she saw litter?) So, I cleaned it up and everything but I got this rant last night about how unhealthy it was to have rat poop on my floor. Admittedly, there were probably 15-30 pellets under the cage. I admitted to my mistake and said I'd keep it clean from now on, but she just wouldn't stop going on about it... Eventually she got to saying that there were diseases in their poop, even though they were domesticated, and I was going to get sick or everyone else sick. She also went mentioned the dust from the poop and how it was going to get in our vents and make us all sick. I'm wondering how true this all was? Apparently she looked it up once, but I feel like it came from an anti-rat site. So, none of this will go back to her, I'm strictly interested in knowing if this is true. Anyone know?
