Some of you already know rats make good pets–affectionate, playful, very smart… and really quite clean. We had our two little rat-girls here, and they were as good as gold until the lights went out. Then they resolved their disputes. Featuring very loud squeaks.

Well, that might be true, some rats do make good pets. Nevertheless, I was not happy when a few of those critters came to visit us a few months ago. One morning I noticed, a few bananas were missing parts. Where they got in, I haven’t been able to find. But I did evict them, a cage worked just fine. However, if I just let them go, they got in one time, and I am sure they would find their way in again. And if not my place, someone else’s home. Thus, I am sorry, their incursion was a capital crime and the penalty was death. There was no funeral nor grave, but the river where their bodies sunk out of sight.
Rats raised domestically for a thousand generations are different from ordinary wild rats.
My little guys favorite spot was on my shoulder while I did my chores.
Yes, they love to ride on your shoulder. Our rats were very well-behaved, that way.
