Yeah I can't imagine it being the best room to keep them in 😅 can they not live in your bedroom? I'm sure they would love to because they like to see you too
I know...I feel bad about it but it's tricky to find the right spot. I really wish my dog wasn't obsessed with them so we could have them in the living room or kitchen. The issue with having them in my room is that there is currently no space, plus I'm allergic to them unfortunately. Right now I have reptiles and birds in my room which take up all of the space, but I am planning on rehoming them since I didn't really intend to get them, I just wanted to rescue them from the crappy pet store I used to work at. Once I do that I would have space for the rats. I would probably just have to get an air purifier and be better at cleaning. I just turned 18 and am still living at home, but trying to figure out what my next steps are and how I can bring my ratties with me, so maybe they'll end up somewhere new entirely (with me of course, I could never give them up).
I kept my previous rats in our basement, but I much prefer having them on the main level of the house.
