Oh, okay. Thanks! It's just that they're bigger, so their smell might be more smelly, too. My mom thinks rats and mice are the same, there's actually a big difference. @.@

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

This is Socks! She died a little while ago, and MAN do I miss her... every day... <3

It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.

She's so pretty!

Lebron, rats can be smelly, but it's a different kind of smelly to mice. Personally, I think the inherent smell of a mouse is slightly worse. However, neither should smell, particularly not rats, if they are being properly cleaned. :)

Female rats don't smell but of course their waste does. Just got to keep a clean cage and it will be fine. I've heard that males have a certain musk to them though.

Males are a little musky, but it's a pleasant smell (or so I think!). It's something you only really smell when you bury your face in their fur or have them on your shoulder. It's a nice, warm kind of smell. :) Neutered males tend not to have it so much.
