Cong-RATS, Rat Parents!
If you get rolling eyes and questioning looks when you tell your friends about your rat, you’re not the only one. These smart, loyal friends get a bad rep, but they are actually one of the best small pets around. They develop lifelong bonds with their owners, have a gentle temperament, can be tamed, and get along with other rats — so why not get two?
Give your little buddy the best life possible by learning all about the rat supplies you need below.
Specialty food is important; it's made just for rats. These blends usually come in pellet, block, or medley form. Ever tried hand-feeding your rat to encourage your bond? Try it. Seriously.
Rats are very tidy, clean animals. Give your rat some help with the housekeeping by providing the bedding and litter they prefer. (It'll probably be easier to litter train them.) They may even give you an extra kiss.
Rats love to play, climb, and spend time with their hoomans. Rope and wood rat toys are best because those little chompers can destroy most plastic stuff. There really are tons of options.
Who's a good little rat? Snacks and treats for your rat friend are great training tools, as well as just a nice way to say "You! You are a good rat!"
Your rat can be the king of his very own castle. Might as well be... he's probably the king of the house, anyway.

If you’re a rat parent (or have any experience with them), you know they make some funny noises. But do you know if the noises they make are a potential health problem? It’s honestly super critical for you to know what the differences are between how your rat’s sounding.
Recent studies show that, on average, the life span of a domesticated rat is about 1.8 years. That’s not very long. So how do we ensure that our beloved pets are living the happiest life possible in the time we have with them?
Like humans with other humans, it takes rats time to become comfortable with their people. Trust training a rat isn’t an easy task, but well worth it for both of you.
