Another Cheezeburger.com cutie!
Some good friends have rats. Pet Rats. And the two rat girls really are cute! And very sociable and interested in everything around them.
The ratcitas (spanglish?) love attention and enjoy being out of their cage and will crawl on your shoulders to snuggle under your hair. Not exactly what comes to mind for a snuggly pet but they really enjoy contact with people.
After playing with you it is funny to watch them clean all the human off them. Makes you feel downright dirty if a rat has to reclean themselves after contact!
