Hi rat buddies :) My boyfriend got me a pet rat (which I have been wanting for ages!!) yesterday for my birthday, so I'm joining the ranks of happy rat parents! His name is Charles Émeri, but I call him Charlie. So far he has been curious and adventurous in his new habitat, and not too scared. Thanks to all of you for being here and caring about giving rats the best care and helping others do the same!

Hello and welcome to the forum! I highly suggest you get Charlie a friend. Rats are highly social animals and can actually get quite depressed when kept alone. It is just impossible for us to spend enough time with them that they need. But keeping two rats is not much different then 1. And they will still bond just as deeply to you, even more IMO.

Just make sure he is indeed a boy and your new rat is too!

We would love to see pics.
