    Mice are cute; rats are ugly.  And mice raised as pets are clean, loving, and easy to care for.

    There are many reasons why someone would want to get a pet rat or mouse. First of all, rats are incredibly intelligent animals. They can be taught to do tricks and form bonds with their owners. Also, they're quite cheap and compared to other animals, they're not all that hard to care for.

    Some people think that rats are gross, but this is also not true. They spend a lot of time grooming themselves, and are clean animals.
