I had a Himalayan boy I took home when I worked at petsmart that I like to describe as the best dog I ever had I took him to work with me on a regular basis, and I literally had a two year old grab onto him while he was on my shoulder and scream so loudly he spit on him. Petie. Never. Flinched. He had the most rock solid temperament of any pet I've ever had He went EVERYWHERE with me in the hood of my sweatshirt, and enjoyed sharing Wawa cookies and cream milk directly out of the bottle. I miss him dearly.

They always do look a lil smarter than the average hamster lol
Lol that's what happens when you hang around rat forums all the time... otherwise they probably would have a super boring cage. =P

They are sooo like dogs! I've always said that if for whatever reason I couldn't have a dog, rats would be close enough! They greet you like dogs do, lol... all I have to do is walk into my bedroom and they go running to their cage door. They lay in my lap and give me kisses. They can be clicker trained! Lol I've never tried it but how cool is that They're much more interactive than most other small pets too. I gently wrestle them with my hands and they'll keep running back for more, they'll chase after their jingly ball if I shake it around and I have a cat teaser that they like chasing as well.

Yeah, smarter than hamsters... my hamsters enjoyed sleeping and eating and that was about it. Oh, and running on their wheel alllllll night. lol.

Why are people so obsessed with having fat pets??? They are perfect body weight. So cute, I want rats but I am afraid that I will be killed if I bring another animal home.

Run free my special angel. I love you and will miss you forever more. You touched everyone with your light.

That was my thought too... just because they're not roly poly they are too thin? I think they look great

They're beautiful ratties!

id say their coats look a little crazy in the pics, but thats more a "just woke up" and "hey my sister was fixing my hair" kind look...
but id say they look very well actually, rats show weightloss in the FACE first, bodies dont say much about a rats weight, especially in pictures...
but their faces are lovely and well filled...

very cute!

I wonder if other dogs think Cresties are members of some weird religious cult?
