Rats and mice can be such very good pets for families. They don't take up much space, and they can be very affectionate and cuddly pets. Many pet resources concentrate on the more common pets, such as cats and dogs. I've looked after rats for many years, so I thought I would start an easy-to-read resource for new pet owners to get an idea of how to care for rats and mice, and some tips on where to go if your pet needs veterinary care. I hope it will be useful to help you keep your pet healthy and happy.
