I want you to get the Bubonic Plague. I don't care what kind of rodent you get it from.

This should be General Discussion.

However, rats make better pets. They're more intelligent and live longer. However you should get 2 if you decide to have them. Most importantly, spend $200+ on them. Make sure you get a large cage, proper litter, and lots of stuff for them to play with. Rats are some of the most intelligent creatures on the planet and live for 2 years. You need to keep them properly stimulated and cared for.

Also, they shit. Constantly. They can't help it. They can not be potty trained since they have to go dozens of times throughout the day. If you can't handle that, you shouldn't have rats.

Having owned both, ditto to AUG. Rats are better. Mice have near-sightedness so they can't tell what's going on when something in the room moves. Rats can see something across a room and decide they want to climb it. Mice shit on average at least 70 times per day. However, their life span is 1.5-2 years (bell curve for those that live to 3)

When you scratch either pet's heads they lull into a hypnotic daze.
