Cheap pet suggestion: rats

Cheap pet suggestion: rats

I have a suggestion for people who really want a pet but can't afford a cat or dog. I've had pet rats for 13 years now. They are cheap to buy, cheap to care for, friendly, and can live off kitchen scraps. They don't require vaccinations or spay/neuter. I keep my rats inside cages that I get for free off Craigslist. Here is what I feed my rats: kitchen scraps rat mix: equal parts kitten food, enriched wheat or corn bran cereal, parrot food mix
