Most Helpful Guy
Not THIS accusation again (not talking to you, but referring to hearing or reading about it in general). I'm an animal guy more than anything, and I really mean no animosity toward anyone, but I'm beyond sick of domesticated rats getting so much hatred and ill will from people who know ZILCH about them. I mean, it's one thing if someone *misunderstands* them, but anyhow, there's a reason why domesticated rats' lifespans are longer than those of wild rats, and WHAT's the difference between rats and guinea pigs? They're both rodents, and there are wild guinea pigs as well, so why aren't guinea pigs filthy, disgusting animals? Honestly, name any wild animal and don't be shit-shocked if it's not as cleanly as you desire.
Also, really, why hate wild rats so much? I guess I can understand if you have bad issues with them, but they're just like any other animal: doing what they have to in order to get by. Any animal, though, that kills or torments animals for pleasure or greed is a true pest, and can you guess what that animal is? Humansssss.0
