With treats rats can do it all even be potty trained not to poop pee outside their cage XD.

On a sadder note I was browsing craigslist (which I should NEVER do) and came across an ad from a person needing to rehome her 3 rats by Sunday, or they're going to be snake food... I don't want that many rats... but I'm thinking of getting them and then rehoming them, just to keep them out of a snakes belly... ugh!
AWWW. well if you can afford it.... I say go for it!
It'd be awesome to print out care sheets to give to the person you rehome them to, since most often theyre kept in small environments with unknowledgable owners-- Hey just like bettas!

Good luck, youre so awesome!!

Unfortunately I won't be getting the 3 girls, it's just not going to work out... Sad... but on a brighter note, my 2 little boys are doing well. Casper is super sweet and cuddles already, Ezra wants nothing to do with me but I'm going to be patient with him he'll get there :) I'll get new pictures of them tomorrow!

Oh, I understand. Maybe you could email them and suggest that she takes them to a shelter? Some (if not all??)humane societies adopt out small animals.

I will look our for pics :D

Go ahead and get them. I'm sure you'll be able to rehome them.

Ezra's socialization is going well, he's super skittish and quick, but he lets me pick him up and makes no attempts to bite, though cuddling is still out of the question. Casper on the other hand is a cuddle bug and happy to to hang out with me. I got them some banana yogurt that I'm going to try as a treat later.

Some pictures of Ezra hanging out in my lap

Rats are naturally very social creatures. I'd say start out with hand feeding treats and petting them at the same time.
