A Reminder from your Pet Sitter. Cars can reach temperatures so high in 10 minutes that your pet(s) can die of heat exhaustion, while left in the car while you run to do an errand. Please don't leave them in the car alone in hot temperatures, if you plan on leaving your car for an errand, leave your pet safely at home. No matter how sad of a look your pet gives you when you do leave them. They will be happy and alive when you arrive back home. Heat exhaustion kills and kills fast
Yes, I said Rats. They make awesome pets and are clean. Most Rats do not bite, compared to a hamster or gerbil, in the past I have had pet rats and mostly just one rat at a time. I used to keep the rat in a 10 Gal aquarium which I find out is wrong. The rat would just lie in the Aquarium all day and looked depressed. Times have changed for the better for the rat. I started reading and doing research. Rats are sociable. Always have at least two Rats together, same sex of course or you will have many more unless they are neutered. Rats like to run and play with each other and their toys. Homemade toys are the best and are cheap. Housing: First let me talk about housing for the Rats. Please don’t keep them in an aquarium. The air does not circulate in them to well and the ammonia builds up quickly from their urine and will cause the rats to have upper respiratory infections. Rats are clean; they clean themselves daily like a cat. They also can be litter box trained.
