@Hedgehog - I'm kind of drooling over your dog and cat right now.
@Pitluvs - I wish I could have a dumbo! They are illegal here. :( If I could choose rats, I'd get a BEW and a blazed black hooded, but I know that in future I'm more likely to just end up with whoever I see at the RSPCA. The badness will come when I leave home and don't have my parents saying no, because my cage can potentially hold 17 rats or something. Not that I'd ever have that many, but it's so tempting when you see them in shelters and you know you could give them such a good life.
Why are they illegal to own? My cage holds 10, and I have another empty that holds 3. I'm good with my 5 in the cage that holds 10 lol Kinda like a single betta in a 10g tank when you think about it. sadly, these are the last rats I'll own for a while. I owned them from 2003 on, but took a break between 2006 and 2009. I had a Dumbo Velveteen BEW once, he was like a little lamb <3
