Rats are overall the best pets you could ever have.
Unfortunately, rats are very misunderstood in the media and regular lifestyle. It's fascinating to me how such a lovable creature could get such a bad name.
A regular hamster runs for about $20, while a fancy rat in Petsmart is $10 on average. And even in the end, if you think about it, there are a few comparisons to the average small pet:
