Pet Rat
I have been wanting a pet rat (or fancy rat) for quite some time now. But have been told not to get them from just any pet shop etc. How would i know that it' ll be a healthy lil rat. and do you maybe know of any places round johannesburg that would maybe have healthy rats i can get as pets, as i can import them from cape town but that is a bit expensive for me at the moment :)

Dear Rat-Girl

You should be able to get a good rat in a good petshop. They do make good pets.
