I recently picked up two young females from a breeder, one dumbo and one standard.
They are the sweetest things, very social, curious, and they love attention. I'm litter box training them, and they seem to be getting the hang of it. So far they've been lovely pets. And I can't wait to develop a deeper bond with each and also teach them a few tricks.
Would you ever own a rat? Do you, if so what tips do you have?

I've rats and I love them. Give them a not too much snacks and put them in the living room or in the children room. Let them run around in one room for 1 hour a day and buy something that covers your cables. Clean their cage every 3 th or 4 th day trust me the smell can be terrible at the beginning the smell will be not that good but after 2 weeks you can't smell it anymore. You should at least buy two rats because they are pack animals.1
