5. Rats

They are bringers of plagues and disease and can destroy people’s livelihood if in big groups. But if you just take one rat that has been tamed and cleaned, they can be wonderful companions. They are social and like to be around people. They are the same as any other rodent - hamsters, gerbils, chinchillas, etc.

They are pretty much a big version of a cute mouse you find at any pet store.

You don’t necessarily need to have these animals as pets to show them respect. Just don’t believe that they are the monsters they are portrayed as in media and society. But if you happen to get some of these as pets, don’t get a snake and a rat. It will end in travesty. Anyway, after reading this, I hope you see some of these animals in a new light.
