Well, we brought Gizmo, our cat, into our home when he was a tiny kitten and the rats were already established members of the family...I think he just kind of accepted them as housemates. Kinda funny, but it's cute. Sometimes we have to give him a little reminder 'shooshing' sound to get him from wrestling too hard, but other than that, no problems! He treats them like small cats!!

The best way to forget your troubles is to wear tight shoes.
