Sounds like the landlord is paranoid of a rat overrun... same reason rats aren't allowed in Alberta.
Alberta is 'rat free' or at least trying to be, so pet rats are a big no no. They have a rat patrol that is working on a dump in a city near the Sask border since rats have been found there. Not sure how well it'd work long term, but....

I still think rats would just migrate eventually anyhow.

That's good that you were able to find her owners!

I have heard of some apartments allowing dogs and cats but not caged pets (I believe PWCorgi has said her apartment doesn't allow rats) - I would think they would be less annoying and less damaging, but most landlords don't like the idea of rats and mice "escaping" - people might not realize they're pets, and freak out.

Hahaha I was gonna say - there is no way that is a wild rat if it looks anything like the one in the photo!

Glad you found the owners, and very cool of you to keep it safe even though you aren't a fan
