You walk into your house one day to see the most detested creature in the history of the universe. No, it's not a plate of vegetables, silly! It's...a... (drumroll please)...
You can't imagine anything more disturbing. It could've been a spider... maybe even a cockroach, but you can't handle rats!
I'm here to change your view. Welcome to my blog, Rat Direction, where I will write about wild rats, pet rats, my rats, and everything ratty! So, enjoy, sit back, and get ready for my first blog post: Why Do People Hate Rats?
Why Do People Hate Rats?
You tell me! Why do you hate those cute, adorable faces?!?!?! Wait, sorry. Cutest overload. Anyway, most people hate them for one reason:
Yep, you heard me! Some people FEAR some of the sweetest animals on earth! True, in the wild, they may eat you. But not pet ones. Not unless you are dead. Not to freak you out. But, hey, 25% of all PET DOGS would eat you when you die!
Most people fear them, and some may be disgusted because they live in waste. News flash: we make the waste! You know who hates rats more than ANYONE in the world? You got it:
If you hate wild rats, I suggest you check out the book Rats by Robert Sullivan. Now, let's talk about why you should love (or at least like) pet rats.
Why to Love Pet (Not Wild!) Rats
They are the sweetest things. Look it up. Wait, no. Don't. Listen to me.
They groom you, they love you for just the way you are! But how to you tell your parents (I'm looking at you, Brandon. Why won't your parents let you get a Rat?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?! Oh, yeah. They hate them!). Lemme tell you how.
First, make sure you know why they hate rats. Then research and talk to them. Settle on getting two. Two! Because, if you don't, that lone one will develop social issues and mental stuff. Not to freak you. Not all develop it, but some do.
I hope you enjoyed my blog post!!! Suggest the next topic on rats!
