Hello! My name's Khloe. I'm from Pennsylvania, USA. I am currently trying to research rats as much as I possibly can so that maybe my parents will allow me to have a pair of them as pets! When I was young, my dad one time brought home a pair of Albino rats from the pet store. At that time, he had just bought them without doing any research, so we knew nothing about their care. From what I can remember, the rats would go to the bathroom everywhere every time we picked them up. Now this is most likely because we did not give the rats any time to adjust, and they were probably very scared. We returned them a few days later. Now that I am much older, I know what not to do upon purchasing rats. I only fear that my parents will think the rats will behave like the pair that we had in the past and use it as a reason that I cannot get them! I'll just have to make some pretty good points and hopefully they'll see reason! Anyways, I look forward to being part of this forum!
