Thread: Lucky and Daisy

    Default Lucky and Daisy

    Thought I'd share the other-OTHER love of my life, along with my partner and fishkeeping. Lucky and Daisy, my 3 month old rats. They are such sweethearts.

    When they first arrived.


    Lucky on her first day with us.


    Daisy (fawn hooded) and Lucky (mink hooded).

    Very cute looking little critters
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Oh dear, rats... Way too cute!! Kept rats for years. Gave it up because they kept breaking my heart. They do make nice pets though.

    Ewww rats! Personally, I have never understood the allure, but to each their own I suppose.
    When I go fishing I just place a sharp rock in the water and sit there waiting for all the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Brutal honesty will be shown on this screen.
    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Tolerance is a great thing to have, so is the ability to shut up.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Well, it's a highly sociable rodent that also happens to be quite intelligent.

    Hahah I get that a lot HB. Really, they were the practical choice. Don't have room for a dog, flat mate is allergic to cats, considered rabbits but too messy, guinea pigs and chinchillas didn't seem to have much personality and also messy, mice are cute but smell awful, so rats were the ideal choice -- clean, intelligent and trainable, easy and cheap to take care of and don't take up much room. (Fun fact; there are no gerbils or hamsters in New Zealand. Only Rats and Mice. It is also illegal to keep pet ferrets.)

    Dutchie yes it is very heartbreaking that they have such short lifespans. Seems so cruel when even a Tetra is likely to live longer!

    For rats, they are kind of cute :o) I don't know if I could get past the negative thoughts associated with them (gutters and garbage and disease) to actually own one but they sound like a perfect solution for you. Also, have no doubt they are everything you say they are - clean and intelligent and all of the above.
    Enjoy!

    ooooooh, they're precious! I have a friend that has rats (nacho & cheddar) and they're precious but yes like TD said heartbreaking due to their short lifespan.

    SO CUTE!! I always thought owning a pet rat would be allot of fun, but I have a snake and sort of felt like I had to go one way or the other... I just couldn't handle the contradiction of feeding a rat to my snake... in front of my pet rat
