On Saturday I brought home my very first rat. His name is Aro. The people at the pet shop didn't know how old he was, but he's still a juvie, not full grown yet. He was a bit nervous on the ride home of course, but then seemed to settle right in. He's very calm and pleasantly curious, kind of lazy, but alert. I can tell he really enjoys being handled and he will readily take treats from my fingers. Yesterday I was rubbing him between the ears and his eyes were drifting shut. I've only had him for a few days, and he doesn't run from me when I pick him up or anything. He still poops when I hold him, I'm his first real owner, but other than that he seems happy. Lemme know whatcha think! I'd love to hear from rat people on here.
