The new Disney Movie Ratatouille shows how fun Rats can be. While Fancy Pet Rats make wonderful pets, do your research. Ratties are trainable and fun pets, but do need proper care and housing.
Fancy Pet Rats do not, like Remmy (Remmie), cook or guide folks around by the hair under their hats. Unlike Emile, Fancy Pet Rats do need a good grade feed made just for them found in a pet store or even Wal-Mart. Yes, Ratties do enjoy some of what you are eating...just a small amount and not too much of it.
Ratatouille is a great and fun movie. Watch it again and again, but remember it is Disney. Fancy Pet Rats have, like a dog or any other animal, their own personalities, needs and wants.
Yes, you can teach your rattie to walk on a leash. Make sure that the harness fits the rattie properly and use a short leash to start. Train the rattie inside just in case the rattie would "slip the harness". Never, I repeat, never use a collar on a rattie. For a collar to be tight enough for a rattie not to get out of... it would do serious harm to the rattie, if not kill it.
