    GMR is real. My daughter found the cutest rescue rat. She showed him to me. We had to make him a part of the family. The top level of his aquarium cage wore out so I bought him a bigger cage. His birthday came around so we went to the pet store to buy him rat treats. There was the cutest feeder mouse. We took her home. Could not bear the thought of her being snake food. The old rat died after a happy spoiled rat life. We went to the pet store for a pair of rat bucks so they would not be alone. My dad found a rodent cage in the garbage. He gave it to me. One day, I was buying rodent supplies. There was the prettiest dumbo eared doe. I did, after all have that empty cage.

    I think I may have this!! Since June this year, I now have 4 rescue guinea pigs and find myself researching rats, rat cages, rats in rescue etc. :confused: I don't think I'll ever be lucky enough to own any but it's nice to dream.....

    I've never had much interest in hamsters before and am not entirely sure how suitable they would be for me... I just love how dog like the rats are, they are so much fun, but you know... cute little faces and I'm sure I could adjust to meet a sweet little hammie's needs :p

    Oooh interesting :D it'd be the biggest rat train I've heard of :) I know a lot of people here (me included !!!) would be happy to take your babies in :D

    I'm planning a trip to North Wales soon-ish, if that's any help?
