Rats have gained popularity as pets in the past hundred years or so. These wonderful little creatures are cuddly, friendly, intelligent pets and reasonably easy to keep healthy.
Contrary to what many people believe, pet rats are not the dirty, disease-infested creatures of folklore. They are affectionate, clean, sensitive and easy to train. They love to be petted in certain spots, they can sense moods and can enjoy a close relationship with their humans.
The rat in the video below is living a happy life near his humans who filmed him while he is eating from spoon! The sweet little rat is also kissed by his dad from time to time and he looks so proud!
