Small Animal Saturday

Yep I'm bringing it back all the interesting, strange, or fun questions I get asked at work I'm answering here.

Today's question:  Can I house Mice and Rats Together?

The answer is a definite No!  Rats and mice are two totally different species as a matter of fact given the chance a rat will prey on a mouse just as fast as a snake, hawk, or bullfrog.  Why?  Rats are omnivores and will eat anything that looks and smells tasty.

Now that being said is there exceptions to the rule .. well there have always been exceptions to the rules when it comes to pets.  The question is do you want to clean up the aftermath if nature takes it's natural course.

Such a cute little mouse! :) We used to have a rattie, they make such great pets! (But yep, they'll eat anything!)
