I didn't see it anywhere else, and I thought it might be an interesting question to ask... why did you first choose to have a rat for a pet? Your very first one. For me for example, I wanted a smaller pet that the kids could handle, thought about hamsters, but then decided on rats. I thought I'd give them a try because I remembered a pair of hairless rats I use to take of for the teacher in 5th grade. They were pretty cool, and loving too, ^ ^. So here I am and love it btw! Whats your behind the scenes story?
