Dont get a rat unless you want it! DONT TORTURE AN ANIMAL!!!!!!!!! ESCPECALLY A RAT!!! And you have a rat, like any other small animal, exept for the fact that rats are much B…ETTER!!!! NEVER FORGET!!!
Unless you are a mammal with a tail, has poor eyesight, two ears at the top of your head, a keen sense of smell, and somehow knew how to type, then YES, you ARE a rat.
You can get a pet rat from most pet stores.
any pet store
This depends on what type of rat you are referring to. Wild rats spend most of their time in sewers, their primary function is to reproduce, which is pretty much the same for …most animals, they don't really 'do' anything specific. However, domestic or 'fancy' rats are genetically different and are bred as pets, i personally find that rats make excellent pets and are friendly, inquisitive and most intelligent. I wouldn't recommend a wild rat as a pet though, they can be very dangerous as they have a nasty bite and living in the sewers makes them prone to infect you. Hope that helped a bit? :)
Technically, a rat cannot type on a keyboard....
Rat Scabies was born on July 30, 1957.
There are lots of different rat traps available to catch them. Or you can go to a pet store and buy one if that is the kind you want!
Rats make great pets you can train them like dogs
If you bought a healthy rat and keep it indoors as a pet, you can'tget anything from it. It's the same as owning a cat or a dog. I wasbitten by my pet rats a few times, came i…nto contact with rat fecesand urine, and breathed dust with particles in it, and I havesuffered zero illness. Certain species of wild rats and other rodents (muskrats,mice, etc) may transmit different diseases. Please notethat these diseases are generally transmitted through breathingin/consuming anything with rat feces or urine in it, or coming intocontact with (including being bitten or scratched by) infectedanimals (including carcasses or fleas and ticks that have beeninfected). Again, these are wild rodents, not the rodentsyou see in pet stores or buy from breeders. You cannotspontaneously develop these diseases from animals that are notcarrying the bacteria or viruses, as well. As with all wild animals, just don't touch them or go near them,and you should be fine. Diseases listed are pertinent to rats, and rats or other rodents.No mouse-specific or other rodent-specific diseases are listed. Different diseases are: Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (virus, mostof North and South America), Rat-Bite fever (bacteria, worldwide),Leptospirosis (bacteria, worldwide), Lassa Fever (virus, WestAfrica -- the only one that can be spread through direct humancontact), Plague (bacteria, Western US, South America, Africa,Asia), Salmonellosis (bacteria, worldwide), Tularemia (bacteria,worldwide), South America Arenaviruses (virus, South America), andHemorraghic Fever with Renal Syndrome (virus, primarily in easternAsia, Russia, Korea, Scandinavia, western Europe, and the Balkans).
Wild rats can give you Leptospirosis (from their urine). If you expose your self to alot of rat urine over a long time i can increase your chances of lung cancer. Wild rats… when cornered can kill children (if they have to). (wild & pets) can bite though your finger to the bone and can need stitching (from experience)
Started off with two. because they are really miss under stood (from people who don't have them) & at the time i was having so many problems and felt like i could relate to …them. a few months later I got another. They helped me though depression and alsorts. They died years later.... Got 3 more because i loved my last 3. 1 died in an operation, so i rescued 3 more. 1 died of a un-known problem. Rescued 2 more. then rescued 2 more... then rescued 4 more... then rescued 3 more... then recently rescues 1 more. I now have 16 (14 Females, 2 Males) and i have rats now because so many are unwanted, abused and killed, for pointless reasons. They are amazing pets and are all fun.
