Lots of folks have pet rats.
However, wild caught rats don't make good pets--they are not docile and can carry disease.
Also, he seems to have way too many of them. Have you considered reporting him to the authorities? It sounds like a health hazard to have so many.

here's a question for ya. To bring this into the context of dating again. If you met the woman of your dreams (whoever she is to you) and she was scared of snakes (or rats, whatever ... girls switch it to guys and the exotic pet of your desires) .... who would would you get rid of??

Reply
If i met a women that had unconventional pets [lizards,rats etc],I would have no problem with it and would actually think it was kinda neat,with one exception ,if she raised Roaches and kissed them on the nose like most people do with their pets ,I would have to say we have no future.
I realize that Roaches are also Gods creatures ,but i have a hard time not getting discusted ,I also realize this is my hang up not the Roaches.

That is really disgusting! And they are not pet store rats that would be clean. these are nasty rates with rabies and the dreaded T-virus! I think rats are disgusting as are msot rodents. Guinea pigs are kind of cute. But any mice or rats are dieseas e carrying vvermin. I ama cat/dog person. Why would someoen own rats and a snake cionsiderign snakes eat rats. Were the rats the food for the snake,. Oh no he ate little michael Eeee-HEEE! WhOOO!

200 of them in cages in his one bedroom apartment ?
Rats he traps and keeps for pets... names after Mowtown personalities?

50 cages piled on top of cages... beady eyed little critters, all hungry looking


If it was 1-5, I think I could handle it. That many is unhealthy.

Rats actually get quite attached to their humans, especially compared to other rodents like gerbils and hamsters. If he had a snake too though, maybe some of them were dinner for snakey. I think the Motown naming is cool. LOL, obviously, I'd be fine with dating rat boy. The only thing I'd be concerned about is if he still caught them wild - you never know which one's going to have hantavirus.

Ok I have to do it.....I met a woman that had 1 pet rat. Believe me I have no love for rats what so ever but he didnt bother me. I guess it was a good thing her and I didnt click. Im sure if we had the relationship between her rat, my dog and cat would have been real short. The dog and cat both would have been in instant attack mode!!!

Ohh, he raised his own food for the snake? But could he handle all of Motown getting swallowed? There's no way it was 200. It was probably like 20. I guess everyone has a different rat tolerance rating. Myself, I would probably be okay with dating a guy with 8 rats tops. Any more, and they are a freak.

Gotta agree with you, Fran Gal. I'd be "long gone".

Guinnea pigs and other rodents aren't that nice as pets. But I would take that over just about any squawking bird.

Kewl!!

Teddy Roosevelt's oldest daughter, Alice, used to go around with a pet snake in her purse. She was also the first woman to smoke cigarettes in the White House.

Needless to say, they just ain't making `em like that anymore...

Cool. I love animals. Rats, lizards, snakes, all fine with me. I had a dog when I was younger, and my best friend had a hamster, and ever since then, I love all animals. The only animal I had a problem with was cats, but then I went out with someone who had cats and loved them, so I had to learn to adapt.

My sis does too. I don't see what is cute about a rat or a python. I wouldn't want either. They do breed like rabbits, though.

If he's breeding the rats, I wonder if he's just trying to make a food source for the boa. That would save him from having to buy from pet stores all of the time.

7 pages about rats. Gotta love this stuff. You can't get two pages out of most threads that actually have a real plot or question ~~~ but you can get 7 whole pages on rats.

~OT~ Rats, snakes, worm-farms, sea-monkeys or huge hairy spiders ~ as long as I don't have to mess with the ones that creep me out, I could care less. Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes a "pet."

Anyone with a darn rat as a pet must have serious issues....that's fo sure.. yuck

Hey!! I've got two pet female rats. They're gorgeous. They are intelligent, clean and fun to watch and play with.

They come to me when I call them, I give them little baths and let them outside for a play.
Cutest little beings they are.

And, lol, 7 pages about rats....this is great!!
