All About Fancy Rats

Two things I forgot to mention: Rat cages must be cleaned weekly, and also your rats should all be the same sex OR be neutered/spayed to prevent pregnancy

I made this project to address some misconceptions about rats and spread the word about rats as pets! EDIT: Mabel and Dipper past away last year but I have two other rats named Mochi and Luna

My last two rats were named Mabel and Dipper and I adopted them from someone who couldn't keep them anymore. After Mabel passed away in Spring 2017 I adopted Mochi and Luna from a shelter for small animals, then Dipper passed away in Fall 2017.

I got my first rat, Hope, when I was about 11 and at the time I knew very little about proper rat care (I'd like to state again that you should NEVER get just one rat!) so hopefully this project will help you get off to a good start getting your own rats :-)
