hi everyone, my name is Luke and I'm interested in gettting a pet rat.

i do have one question though.

Do rats make good pets? I'm looking for a pet that can recognize me among other people and that will bond with me and like to be around me. Can a rat be this pet?

thanks!
:)

Rats make great pets, and my rats can definately distinguish me between other people, they're a lot of fun, I suggest you wait a while before getting one though, build up some knowledge first, that way there you'll be better prepared.

Rats are wonderful pets! And they definitely will bond with you. All three of my rats know me and distinguish me from other people. They know my scent and my voice, and prefer me over anyone else :D

I agree that you should definitely read up on them before you get any. Read through threads on the forums and look up websites. Ask questions! The more you know, the better prepared you will be for them, and you will have less problems. And your rats will be happier, healthier, and make even better pets for you! ^_^

Everyone has said what's true - rats make AWESOME pets. BUT, they are a lot of work, and they do need a lot of attention. The more you put into your rats, the more they'll give back.

A pair is really a must, if not more then 2. Rats NEED other rats, as they are very social animals. Humans can NOT replace a rattie friend.
