We had two female Fancy Rats named Cheesecake and Cheeksie. They were very calm and loved attention. They loved to play with cat toys and hide under your hair when holding them. Unfortunetly, these pets didnt work out for our family, becaue they would get bored and sneak out of their cage (and we tried every kind of cage we could find) and they would find a way out of every single one!! Major escape artists!! Also, despite cleaning their cage everyday, it always smelled! They kept themselves clean, but still had a very unique smell that we just couldnt stand. They would also sneak out of their cages at night and get in bed with us. They never bit us or anything, but waking up to a rat crawling up your leg is a little unnerving. Ive heard nothing but good about these little critters, and they were very very smart and loving.....they just werent right for our family.
