I'd like to start out by saying that I think rats are adorable creatures. I would love to have one as a pet. I know that they are very intelligent, clean animals. But I heard somewhere that they are extremely social and need another rat companion to keep them happy. Is this true? How much time would one have to dedicate to a rat if this is true and you keep one rat?
How much time should you spend in general?
