Pet Rats – Guide to Easy Pet Rat Care and Training
"My complete system will have your ratties trusting you as their close friend, doing neat tricks that impress your friends, and living as long as possible. Even if you’re almost never home, you’re a total beginner, and you don’t have time to read through volumes of time consuming material!"
What first got me so interested in pet rats almost 3 decades ago was their amazing antics. How could so much personality be balled up in such a small animal?
How could they — unlike a lot of other small animals — be so genuinely caring? And have such a strong gleam of intelligence in their eyes? And make me laugh for hours watching them play?
When I first went to my friend’s house one day in 1978 to meet his pet rat, I wasn’t so sure, since I had preconceived notions about rats.
