Hey guys.
I have had many hamsters over the past and recently ive taken my fancy to rats. Ive heard there much more friendly and exiting.
I have a pets at home near me so i will be able to get a rat(s).
Here are some breif questions;
Should I get Male or female?
Should I get one or two?
I would also like to know some cool things rats can do.

Thanks a lot if you answer my questions.
I like browsing through the forum and think its great!
:D

If you have indeed been browsing through the forum, you should know that all rats need to have a friend. :) Two rats are always better than one--they need rattie companionship that you just cannot give, no matter how much you play with them.

As for males v. females, it's pretty much personal choice. I have three females, and they are all bundles of energy. I hear males are more easy-going squishy lap rats.

just make sure you egt them of the same sex... not one of each

on top of that please use the rat calculator to determine the proper cage size & read about what type of cage to get... meaning, avoid glass aquarium lean toward an all metal cage with small enough bar spacing that they can't escape. http://www.fancy-rats.co.uk/information/guides/cagecalculator/

Oh & be sure to read the sticky about proper diet
