Is a rat a good pet?

All of my friends say that they are good, but I have also seen some of the rat bites they have. What provokes their biting?

No. Get a hamster, they are nice. Even better, get a bird,cat or dog, as they are better pets because you can actually play with you

We had them and yes they were decent pets. They are very social creatures. The only one that tried to bite was the beady little red eyed white rat (my husband swears those ones bite) and I think it was cuz she was hungry and my daughter stuck her tasty smelling finger in the cage! Lol! I flicked its nose and it didn't try it again.

Possibly if your fingers or other parts of your body smell like food, they may bite you.

Poor handling will make that happen. They're good pets, just don't have more than one at a time. It gets pretty gross-- if one dies, the other will eat the dead one. yikes :/

Most people have impressions with rats with bad reputations over past centuries witch is very true. but most rats are being born & raise now in days for scientist to study or as pets, they said they are very obedient creatures but if you're into rats for a pet I say go for it.
