Yep. They're called fancy rats or dumbo rats because they sometimes have huge ears. $9.99 @ any pet store around here.
It's the cage and the toys that run the bill up fast.
They're surprisingly clean, fun and affectionate. She has one that will sit on her shoulder and nibble her ear all day.
she likes to give them baths and dress them up for parties
Best of all, she knew from the start that she would have to pay for everything and do all the work because mom aint getting near the rats. So far, she has done great. Not a day goes by that she doesn't look for ways to earn money.
