Justice in the Christmas tree

These are my pet rats. I adopted them from the Minneapolis Humane Society after I saw an ad on Craigslist where someone had to give away their rat.


I used to own rats so I went looking for a pair that needed a home. Rats are great pets for a number of reasons:

-sturdy animals. Good for kids who drop pets

-friendly. Good with kids, keep them in pairs

-flexible eaters. They're rats! They can eat nearly anything you can

-affordable - You will pay on average $5 for a rat and upwards of $30 for a fancy dumbo rat from a good breeder

short lifespan - Good for kids. About 2 years so not a big commitment

fun - Rats are great pets! Teach them tricks
