What I Learned from Owning Rats

A few months ago I wrote a post about my experience of having a guinea pig, I wasn't sure if people will be interested in it, but turned out that post became the most popular during two months.
So I thought maybe some of you will be interested to learn more about rats too. Although I know not all people like them. Actually I didn't too before owning them too, I even didn't want them and when I've got two huge rats, I was so scared. But now I know they're awesome. Here are some of good and not only things I've learned about them. I really need to write this post now before I'll forget it at all.
  1. They are like mini-dogs. Everything they do remind me of a dog. They are friendly, always want to play, love to eat everitime... 
  2. They love to play in ''Mouse hunt'' and to be cat there. It's shocked me.  Not sure if you know what game it is. It's cat's game where you make a mouse (bow) of a paper and a thread and moving it and trying not to give to a cat to catch a mouse (paper bow).
  3. Rats are super clever. Even don't try to deceive them!
  4. They love to eat everything, even furnitures, so you don't need to buy a special type of food (but don't forget about vitamin C they need).
  5. They need and want a lot of our love. And it's freaking cute.
  6. Rats actually rarely bite, as I said they're very clever, so if they bite you, you do something really bad.
  7. Be careful when you buy a rat, rats often has diseases. My rat died because of his disease that happens very often to rats.
  8. They're sooo cuuute, kind and funny and when people start to notice their lovely ''soul'', they forget something they don't like about rats.
  9. You should clean their cage very often. Because their awful smell and their health.
  10. You can learn them to do tricks.


  1. I agree with you. Rats are really clever. They're amazing animals!

  2. I know they're not the pet for me, but they are cute

  3. Aw! That last photo is adorable! Cute cute cute ♡

  4. They are so cute! I am sure that you learned a lot from them, that they are clever, want to eat everything (oh no, furniture!) and that they can play tricks... having a pet is so good for the soul! Hope you have a very amazing week!
