I love rats! My friend has two and I play and cuddle with them every time I'm over at their house. I'd love to get one, but my moms afraid of them + I have a cat, so I don't think it would work out very well

I don't think cats will be a big problem as long as you keep and eye on them.
I never let them out with my older cat who had all his claws, but I'd let them out around my younger one who has her fronts declawed and other than a few times when she was playful she never bothered them but I guess it totally depends on how predatory(not lazy XD) your cats are as my older one was still pretty lazy and didn't bother them....even the time I left the house and forgot to lock the cage ;w;

Also to those saying "one"...you want "two" not "one" B3
Just messing around, but yeah you want at least two if you ever get them.

I have a cat too, and I fear that all the time cause my cat can go haywire- :fox-:P:

Generally, you shouldn't worry about the cat problem if you have a separate room for them (which is highly recommended)-Also be careful if you get ferrets too, I think they are natural enemies

This ^^
Unless you have a LOT of time to devote to and interact with your rat (which probably won't be the case if you have work/school/etc.), then you'll definitely want to get a second one as well. From what I remember, rats can actually get depressed if they don't have a buddy to play with.

Yeah you don't want to risk only getting one especially if your busy, I only ever had one rat that actually preferred being alone and I was lucky and wasn't going to school anymore so could give her all the attention she wanted.

I love rats ~
Used to have a brown rat named Brownie (she stayed at my friends house because my parents hate rats : / ). She was the sweetest pet I've ever owned

They would be my second pet choice (after snakes) :D

I love rats! I have 3 Rats of my own: Hermione, Violet, and Lilly. We used to have a 4th, but she got a tumor and sadly she died. :sad-fox: But still, I love rats! Lilly is my sweetest rat. She always goes to me over my mom, and she is just so chittery! People who think rats are gross are insane.
