my date had pet rats !Page 1 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)
I just didn't know what to make of it. He said he caught them around the neighborhood and brought them home. He had them named after the jackson 5, Micheal, Tito, Jermaine, papa Joe ...... then just kept on with all the MOWTOWN people because they were breeding. There was Stevie Ray and Diana and more

I was like screaming.... AGRRRRRRRHHHHH
He had a pet phyton too !
thinking I was having a nightmare. Where do these freaks come from? I couldnt get away fast enough.
I told him I was a certified pest exterimnator and we just werent going to click..... and left as soon as possible.

anyone else run into rat collector man date? what a freak... yuck ! he kept them in cages in his apartment.

It was the costumes and how he said he walked them on leashes in the hallway in the middle of the night, trying to teach them to dance.

Maybe I'm just too critical !!!!
so, you want his number?

If that big black rat in the front cage is still there, let me know what custome its wearing....
I lost my scarf that night and I bet he used it to make one of them a dress. and matching handbag

I happen to like rats and have had several as pets. They all had names....and more personality than most humans.

The ones at the stores are no different than wild ones... they do not give rats vaccinations before you buy them at pet stores.

Even if they did..... ewwww. No way.

Maybe I could take it downtown for a makeover and have its fur colored to match my outfit and a nice little rhinestone studded necklace and leather walking leash.

Oh how awesome that sounds ! Lets all get pet rats !!!

If met a man with a pet snake and you will be able to see the trail
of dust as I run off.

I wouldnt sleep in a house with a snake. I guess I have standards.

So quit you're bashing ,grow up , & understand people are different & so maybe will have different pets. Until you've never had a pet rat you won't understand what im talking about anyway .


I used to keep pet rats too, so I do know what you're talking about. I never understood why people who have no problem with hamsters, as nasty as they are, are so repulsed by rats, which are smarter, friendlier, and more social.

When was the last time you saw a newpaper article about giant NYC sewer hampsters?


If non-domestic hamsters lived in sewers, it would be worse. Hamsters are nasty, anti-social, unfriendly little rodents.

I have two cute female rats - they are sooo glad to see me every morning!


And they're smart! Smarter than some people I know of.

One of my rats, Syd, figured out how to open the cage door and taught Nancy and the babies how to do it.
