My story

Meet Pac Man & Mario!

These bonded boys came to our shelter with no history - so we aren`t sure what they`ll be like in a home. They have been curious, social and sweet with our staff. Rats are very intelligent and very friendly animals. They often love to be held, petted, and snuggled. Rats can have a great deal of fun climbing up on people`s shoulders and arms, and can be trained to do a variety of behaviors. If you are looking for a small mammal that will want to spend time with you, rats make a wonderful choice.

It is best to house rats in a wire cage with bar spacing that is small enough to prevent escape. Rats require a good size cage to live in, with multiple levels to climb. We recommend a minimum of 2’x2’x2’ for one or two rats. Rats love to climb and explore, so two or three levels in the cage will be important as well. Just ensure that the flooring and ramps of the cage are not wire mesh, which can catch on a rat’s toes and limbs or cause other injury. Opt instead for a cage with solid metal or plastic flooring and ramps.

If you`d like to learn more about these two, submit an inquiry today!
