Oh goodness, I dont know but I have rat fever!
It seems now that every rat I see for adoption or sale or to good home or cant keep needs a good home I want to prance at! Its so addicting, those ears and those eyes and that nose, in the picture, its just so tempting!
Some people on here said they have 15 or more rats! That must be intense!

I recently built a cage, as some may know its in the cage forum posts, ect. It can only really hold 4 but it has three but I don't want 4 in it. It makes me want to go out and build or buy another cage and adopt more!

Sadly, most the time its some males, but Ide want them to be together so that means neutering and I don't really believe in that unless its necessary so I really only want to keep females at a time, I rarely like males at all, they intimidated me sometimes. But even when I see a female, a Fawn or a Blue, DUMBO! Its just SOOO TEMPTING! My mother would murder me if I got more, I have the money and the time its just, I must restrain I only told myself three.

How do you all do it?!

I have 8 rats right now. I only meant to have two but Picasso had babies and well I had to keep a least a couple! Then I couldn't find a home for Max and Trevor so my four boys ended up being six. I'm tempted by more rats, and when I get a house they won't have their own room, but certainly a much bigger cage, and a play area.

How do I keep from getting more? I scrub their cage every couple days.
