Meet Basil


Basil recently came in for castrating. He’s doing really well.

Isn’t he the cutest? We couldn’t resist some cuddles. Especially Dr Alex who loves pet rats!

Rats make great pets for kids. They are very affectionate and enjoy gentle handling.

They can learn to respond to their name and will come to you when called.

Female and castrated male rats do not produce strong odours so are perfect for keeping in kids’ bedrooms.

Domesticated rats come in lots of colours from white to creams, browns and a mixture of these colours.
