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?!

Pet store rats make me sad, specially petco, well at least the one near me. i don't know about others. Depends on the people working there, but they all look lazy and dirty. Im actually thinking of applying there to work in the rodent section so I can help maintain them better, then the people who currently work there don't.

But still, its HARD! I always look through the local humane society and just fall in love with every rat passing through. -sigh-

I have 3 comming next week :D :D :D
Ok, Im jealous now. ><" What kind(s)?!
Ok, once school starts and settles in and I get a new job, after I quiet the one I have, Im only 18 people, so yeah, lol, I job hunt for part times, not important, I think Ill try and make another cage, this time, preferably cheaper, maybe all mesh and stuff.. [plots]
