Just chillin’. 

Thanks for your help guys! I’m going to throw out the pumpkin goop but I’ll roast the seeds and give them to the rats as a treat.

I bought a pumpkin to practice carving for halloween, I’ve just scooped out all the seeds and gooey innards, can I feed those to the rats? Can they eat it raw? I wouldn’t give them butternut squash raw and that’s a gourd but idk. We don’t ever get pumpkins here except for around halloween so I don’t really have any experience with them.

My young boys sampling one of the wonderful new hammocks we got from Rapps! This is the first I have seen them since I put them in. I think they like them… :P

There is nothing I enjoy more than seeing rats enjoying the hammocks I sew :V

I hide my cat and rats in my apt in America. It's never been an issue.

I was born & lived 21 years in America & had apartments. I never heard of landlords doing indoor inspections. In fact, that may be illegal. I believe landlords cannot enter your apt. without your consent or the police for ex. I always had a cat in my apts. & never told my landlords & they never found out. He was much bigger than a rat. I think so long as the cages are in the back room or at least not viewable from the door then hiding it would be fine. Lots of Americans hide their pets.

Really? apartment inspections are common here, landlords like to see that you’re keeping the apartment in good shape and haven’t damaged any of their property. 

I just really don’t think it’s ever a good idea to lie or hide things, but that’s probably just a personal thing.

Personally, I would never recommend lying about something like that. The second your landlord shows up to do an inspection or something (you might get one that does random inspections too!), they will see those rats and they will immediately know that they’re rats and that you lied to them. I think the key is to try to educate people about them and how they are clean, intelligent and friendly animals. Also, you can tell them straight up that pet rats don’t carry plague. The only way they could get plague is if they came into contact with a wild rat who had fleas that was carrying the plague. These are indoor pets, they are healthy, well behaved and no different from keeping mice, hamsters, gerbils or any other similar small pet.
Unfortunately, I have never lived in America and never rented a house or had to deal with closeminded moron landlords so my opinion is pretty much a moot point. If anyone has any advice please feel free to get in touch with v-ron to share your experiences.
