Rat Intros

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I decided to introduce Armin,my young dumbo to Ronnie,my foster rat (who BTW I will be adopting...just need to make it official).Intros went well instantly! I was impressed,seeing as normally intros are not so smooth.

Actually the cats don't bother the rats.I have had rats well over 10 yrs,so way before the kitties.The kitties grew up around the rats and learned the rats are not prey.Also the rats were quick to show the cats who were boss and would attack the cats through the cage.The cats avoid the cage now and don't bother the rats at all when I have them out.

Awww,these guys are not like the wild rats.These guys love human attention and are friendly and affectionate.They are also less likely to bite then hamsters.I just got two more babies a couple nights ago,they are rexes (have curly fur and whiskers).
