I surprised the kids with pet rats last week! The Middle Little named his Emily...she's the one with some tan. The Girlie named her ratty Squeakers...she's all white. Rats are actually very clean animals, are smart and easily trained, and they are highly social. They make very good pets and can live up to eight years...unlike hamsters who are guaranteed to break your kids' hearts by dying within two years.
