Oh, Rats!!

Personally, I think rats belong in a trap. Tiny, furry creatures scare me. Tiny, furry creatures crawling on me scares me even more.

I would never think of having a rat as a pet. But my granddaughter, Kayla, has Sally - Sally, the rat. I really think there is some kind of bond between them. Sally knows her name and responds when Kayla calls- really! Sally loves to get out of her cage and play with Kayla. Sally never runs off to hide when Kayla is around. Sally even gives Kayla "ear kisses"...a little nibble on the ear.

Well, maybe Sally doesn't belong in a trap...but tiny furry creatures still scare me and send me running for the nearest chair to hop on!

DancingDolphin I'm with you on this one! YUCK! This will seem "prejudice" but I actually have no problem at all with mice and think they're kind of cute even when running around my cottage... but if I saw a RAT I'd FREAK!

photopoet She's beautiful and the rat is 'kinda cute'—but I'm not too keen on seeing them as pets. A friend of mine has two white rats and say they make wonderful pets!

ambersunsets OMG!! Rats creep me out with their beady little eyes! However, I respect the fact that people enjoy them as pets.
Your granddaughter seems very loving and gentle with the little creature.

PaperWings YIKES! I am with you...rats belong in a trap ...or at least far far away from me. The thought of their little feet and tails on my flesh...chills.
Putting that aside, :) Your granddaughter is really cute! great shots.

JanetLippincott I had rats as a kid and again after I was 50. They make good pets for all ages. They are smart, need to have interesting things to do and they know you! I would recommend a rat as a pet to anyone who has time to be attentive.
