World Rat Day

April 4 marks the celebration of World Rat Day, dedicated to dispelling the negative perception that rats often endure. Rats are remarkable creatures with unique talents and qualities. Historically, they gained a poor reputation, largely associated with the bubonic plague, and are often disliked for perceived food theft and disease transmission.

However, those who have pet rats understand that they are intelligent and enjoyable companions. Much like any other living being, pet rats require attention, care, and love. In 2002, a community of pet enthusiasts initiated World Rat Day to foster acceptance of these wonderful animals, encouraging them to become valued members of our everyday lives.
