I do not like rodents of any shape, size or form. How any right minded person ( other than small boys) can want pet rats in the house is beyond my comprehension. I also include the pretty fluffy creatures, I like them but not indoors.
I know that I have Ben but he does not walk all over the work tops, or leave "calling cards " lying around.
