When you live in a rat-infested environment, it is most likely that you will spend most of your time in a room with an animal. The most common pet rats are the Spinal Tap rats! They are also the most common reason you spend your day in pet-infested rooms.
Pets can be expensive, but only if you have a room with one. In most cases there’s a minimum pet price of $20 to $30 per rat, but even those price ranges are often not enough to cover the cost of a room with rats. That said, if you live without pets, you can still buy a rat in most case. It is actually quite common to find a rat for $25 to $50.
In many cases the cost of a pet is a function of its size. A medium-sized rat is about the size of a human hand so a small rat is the equivalent of a toy. Large rats are actually a bit more expensive due to the cost of the food they eat. To make things even more expensive, they are also bred at a slower pace than other pets. Because of these differences, they are not as popular in pet stores.
The main reason these pet rats are so popular is because they don’t have to be very big to get a very large rat. By contrast, the smaller rats are actually pretty much as big as your hand. The way they’re raised and the way they’re used, they can easily be made to fit in an apartment or shed. A small rat can be a very small rat.
It doesn’t seem like a lot for a pet, but the price of a rat can be very significant. According to the University of Illinois, a rat is about five times the price of a human. That means that a rat will cost you $120 to $400 more than a human, and its not really fair since the rat is a better pet than the human. One thing is certain though, a rat is much easier to feed and house than a human.
If you don’t want to spend the much greater sum, many pet rats are more expensive than a rat itself, as the University of Illinois points out. They also say that the bigger the rat, the more expensive the rat will be. A rat that weighs 5lbs will cost you more than a human at one time. This does not apply to cats, dogs, or monkeys, but it does apply to rats.
My advice with these rat owners is to get them for their pets. A pet rat is much easier to look after, you can easily do chores with it, and it is also cheaper.
Of course, not everyone is as dogmatic as the University of Illinois. At least one pet rat owner suggests that there is another way to save money. In an interview with the Chicago Tribune, she points out that she is allowed to do most of the household chores on Ratty, the pet rat that she has named after her son. If you don’t want to get a pet rat, you can buy a pet dog or cat, which also make pet rats cheaper.
In fact, the cheapest pet rat you can buy is a puppy, which is around $100. They are so cheap they can be the cheapest pet rat on the market, which brings up the question of whether there are any pet rats left. The answer is that there are still plenty of pet rats to go around.
