    Why aren't the ones you find in the wild quite as cute?

    And can you get lepto from domestic rats or just wild rats?

    That diving for peas and dramatic bear rescue was simply awesome! They were some cute rats!

    They are! Every time I catch a live one and say I'm going to put it down, I look at it's big eyes and end up releasing it down in the rocks by the water. Well, the little ones are cute.

    I do think Pet rats can get it, but it's uncommon.


    I was really surprised today to see a wild baby rat in my pond, sitting on a lily pad eating my fish food (and probably my damn expensive Koi!), when I went to scoop him up he dove underwater and used the underwater plants to pull himself to the other side and then swam to the edge. I sat and watched for another half hour or so and saw another one and him continually go into the pond, swim to the food, and take it back to the land. That was something new! Pretty cool.
    I still hope the cat gets them.

    I'll try to, I bet they're pissed now, because I took out a lot of the plants they were using and sold them today, but they love that fish food. Very fatty and fishy. They were some healthy looking things. They've ruined the pond liner, though, and they have to be gone before I redo the pond unfortunately. Or I will have to find a way to make it chew-proof.

    I have no idea how to go about teaching a lot of that to a rat, they're so ADHD 24/7 and think that treats mean to try increasingly desperate acts on getting it, not working out how. :lol:

    last night I simply introduced her to the clicker, click treat, click treat, click treat etc till she got bored and ran away. I will probably do that until she understands what the noises means, so when I click she will come to get treat.
