Oh dear, that's not right! Rats need to have a friend to groom and be groomed, snuggle up with, play with through the night etc. Rats are much happier and healthier in same sex pairs or more. I'm not bashing you or anything... I just can't believe the things they say in pet stores sometimes!rainbowbritexx said:I considered getting her a friend but the girl at the pet store said I should only get one so it would become more attached to me.
