Just curious...can rats aquire sicknesses that human have? For example I have a friend who got some sort of virus last thursday and I guess her throat is bleeding (shes goin to the hospital today) If she were to go around rats without washing her hands and maybe even coughing on them, can they get that sickness??

Also if they can get human sickness, what are some good ideas to preventing that?

if it is strep throat (kinda sounds like it is) yes she can pass that off to the rats

common cold... no
flu... no

but as with any sickness... sick person must wash up frequently & avoid sneezing or coughing on others or into the air... grab a box of tissues & catch that ick before you get the rest of us sick
