Company for Rats
Rats are sociable animals, and should be kept in the same sex (female) pairs or groups. It is recommended that you buy your rats at the same time as it is easier to introduce them to each other. A rat that is kept alone will need lots of attention from you.
We recommend keeping rats in groups to avoid any unwanted baby rats but this is entirely up to the owner. It is also possible for two male rats to fight so bear this in mind when pairing.
The average lifespan for a Rat is between two and four years.
