My girlfriend and I recently came into possession of our first rat. He's a young guy and was intended to be a feeder. Though he is sweet as can be! He grooms us and hides in our shirts but will not stayed still long when held. Other than that he is a great lao pet!

Hello! Congratulations on your first rat!
You will need to get him a friend, another male rat (unless you get a spayed female) as rats are incredibly social animals and need at least one other rat to keep them company.
Do you know about how old the little fella is?

My guess is that he is maybe two months? He was bought as a "small rat ". We were thinking of getting him another his age. Would that be ideal or should he get an older/younger one?

His age would be best, that will make intros easiest. :) if there were other ~8 week old males at the store with him, you should go for one of those as soon as you can. Intros should be east as they already previously lived together
