"My boyfriend and I own two lovely lady rats called Meg (albino with beige hood) and Maddy (albino). Always have more than one rat. Aside from the fact that they will be happier and healthier, it's fun to watch them playing and wrestling and building nests with their bedding together. I wanted to mention that healthy rats can make noise other than the distinct "eep" sound. But it's most likely something an owner wouldn't notice until they spend quite some time with their rat because it's a very soft noise. Rats sometimes grind their teeth together to wear them down, making a sound referred to as "bruxing". They do it when they're stressed or relaxed. You may also notice their eyes "boggling" at the same time when they're really happy. Although sometimes I think they do it for attention too. One day my boyfriend was sitting at his computer. The girls were leaning so far off the bookshelf we keep their cage on they were almost falling off (we always keep their cage open when we're home and awake) and they were bruxing so loudly because they wanted to sit with him that he could hear it through his headphones. He, of course, picked them up and they snuggled together between his shoulderblades. That's another thing. Ratties can be pretty spikey, it's best to wear layers as they like to hide."
