Does anyone here raise rats for pets?

    I used to have several pet rats and was wondering if other people here enjoy keeping rats as pets?

    I don't have any right now but have happy memories of my former rat pets.

    I had once for my son's sake. Not a pleasant experience. That beast almost bit off my son's finger!

    The do need to be gentled and then handled regularly.  After that they are harmless unless you shut their tail in something (been there, done that)

    I use to have a pet rat. She was a really cool pet. As long as they are handled at a young age they are pretty gentle. Mine was real sweet, she liked to sit on my shoulder.
