Here are a few suggestions for your pet rat:
Although I would not care for a rat as a pet, I have heard they are actually good pets. Here are some positive comments about rats as pets.
Rats As Pets
Rats are smart social animals and can make great pets. They usually live for about two years and can be tamed and trained, making rats fun for someone who likes to handle and play with their pet. While they are easy to care for, rats do require some daily maintenance. They thrive with a good amount of attention paid to them and at least an hour of exercise out of their cage is ideal. Often rat owners compare their curious rats to the fun and curiosity of a pet dog.
Rats are very social animals and tend to thrive with other animals. Keeping pairs or groups same sex is ideal, and males usually get along fine with other males. Keep this in mind when selecting names for your rat or rats; it can be fun to have a cohesive theme for all your rats, like multiple names of characters from one book or movie.
