Why do so many people dislike rats? The wonderful children I babysit got two pet rats this week, and I'm so excited for them!! They're so cute and cuddly (the rats, I mean...although the boys are cuddly too)! I told my fiance and asked if we could get a rat, and he said absolutely not, "because they're dirty." This is totally untrue. I told my mother about them, and she was grossed out and said, "If you get rats, you're going to have to find somewhere else for them to stay when you go on vacation!"|
How do you feel about rats? If you don't like them, why? Is your dislike of them based on fact, or common misconceptions (like "they're dirty")?
