Homemade Rat Treats
Because rats can eat just about anything and everything that we, humans can, it's fun to create interesting recipes that are both healthy and yummy for your pet rat(s).
You can even put a twist by adding this or that, and making the recipe yummy to your tastes. For example, add a little salsa to the Low fat burritos, and you have yourself a nice low fat lunch or dinner that you can share with your rat(s). Maybe try a chocolate sauce instead of butterscotch, and share some Rattie Rolls with you favorite rat(s).
In any case and situation. Making homemade recipes for you pets can be enjoyable for you and them...
