Rats or should I say anything small, caged, is considered food for at least one of our dogs, the dachshund..so we can't have them..he has already, a few years back, gotten a hold of my daughters two hamsters..not a pretty sight..

But Sadie is adorable in a rat kind of way..Happy Birthday..
Where I buy some of the dogs raw foods they have two naked rats..now those are grossโ€ฆ

She is beautiful, love 2nd pic :D.
I love rats :p. I had rat male named Tarky 8 yrs ago. He was great pet and also very clever, when I called him he immediately cames to me :D. He passed away in the age of 4.

I was just kidding ๐Ÿ˜‰ I like all animals. I have had 14 hamsters, rabbits, a chicken, three cats, three ferrets, birds.. but never a rat though.. My mom isn't really an animal person, so a rat was just a bit too much.. ggg.. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ but I think they are really adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

Why don't you have another animal at home???
My mom and dad both are crazy about animals.. I sometimes came back with insects.. my mom said "Put into your room OR in the garden.. not in my kitchen!!!! hahaha"

Well.. I would like to add a cat.. But I don't think it's fair for the cat.. being home alone a lotโ€ฆ And there isn't a kitten daycare ๐Ÿ˜‰ So I should take two cats.. but.. I don't think BF would agree..

And rabbits, birds, hamsters etc.. I believe they need a lot of room.. not a cage.. and well.. with Tillo.. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

So that leaves a horse (no time and not a lot of room in Almere) or another dog..

My mom grew up at a farm.. gg.. but she just doesn't like animals.. She likes Tillo and Lycia and she was kind to all the animals I've had.. But that's it ๐Ÿ™‚

She is really cute! Rats, yes; Naked rats, yes; Naked-Mole Ratsโ€ฆnot so much;)

Happy Birthday!

No rats for me but I do love little hamsters. Had one named Miss Mousy that would play dead when the dog got too close to the cage. Went on so long a few times I thought she actually was dead!

She's a pretty girl! Looks like a cozy cage too.
I used to have a white rat girl too, she was naughty and nipped sometime's.
THEN I got a hairless male rat he was the opposite, very sweet, calm and never nipped. He was not as healthy as the girl and passed away at a young age. I miss the little guy

Cats don't mind being alone - sometimes they much prefer it. So long as they have food, water, a litter box and someplace to lie in the sun, they are happy. Though they do love to lie on laps and get petted when it's their idea.;)

When our cat is allone, he won't eat..
Whe we come home he starts to eat immediately, he doesn't mind when de Basenji's are with him but when everybody is gone.. he doesn't like being allone.
I think some cats don't mind it and some cats do. ๐Ÿ™‚

I agree.. and I really like the Abyssinian, which is a cat that needs a lot of attentions and play..

@Shaye's:

I agree. Sumi does really well by herself. She has been an only cat since I took her home from her momma at 12 weeks old. She lived with a dog for a few years, but hates other cats. In the wild, they tend to be solitary like Cougars and only congregate when they need to exchange DNA.

Happy Birthday to your little gal. She's beautiful.

I had a hooded rat named Fruit-Loop years ago. She got the name because my ex was lying on the floor eating a bowl of them and got up to do something. Her cage door was open, so she went to inspect the bowl and see whether there was anything in it for her. When she leaned on the edge of the bowl, the whole thing tipped over on top of her! :eek: She was covered from head to tail tip in milk, but happily munching the cereal when I removed the bowl. It was the first time I ever had to give a rat a bath.

These cats have also similar behaviour to Basenjis :). No wonder when this cat comes from Africa :D.
I believe she would gets along with Tillo and wouldn't needs a partnership with another cat ;):).
