10 Reasons Why Rats Make Better Pets than Lions

Lions may be hot right now, but you don’t have to go to Africa to find love.

So often what we seek is right under our nose. For years we’ve looked down on rodents but that is about to change. Read up why rats are the new cats. And probably better company than that stuck-up Alpha snob you’re dating as well.

1. They love you as you are

Lions are proud, snooty and have impossible standards. Rats, on the other hand, have none. Not only will they not care about your roots and smelly slippers, honey, they won’t even see them.

2. They’re actually into babies

A typical rat couple has up to 2000 babies a year so you feeling broody won’t make anyone uncomfortable.

3. They’ll get their own dinner

Sick of always being the one to cook? Lions expect women to bring home the kill, so nothing will change if you go down that road

4. Generosity is in their blood

One for all and all for one. Not a bad thing when earning as little as you do.

5. They take up less room

You shouldn’t have to fight for space on the couch at your age.

6. Are fond of the arts

When was the last time a guy you dated played music?

7. Very affectionate

Rats do emotions. Unlike other species we could mention.

8. You don’t have to go to the ends of the earth to find one

Not Zimbabwe, not the internet. Rats are everywhere, in your sheds and wall cavities. There’s probably one rooting in your bins right now.

9. They won’t eat your head off

Literally or figuratively.

10. And if it doesn’t work out there’s plenty more fish in the sea. ..
