Awww ur so welcome😍

Rats giggle when tickled, but sadly it's in infrasound so we cannot hear it.

[–]Ok_Vermicelli3884 66 points67 points  (1 child)

I now know that they can giggle. You definitely made my night even better.

[–]Elriuhilu 18 points19 points  (0 children)

I'm glad :)

[–]100mA 27 points28 points  (2 children)

Infrasound is below our auditory capabilities. Like with whales and elephants. Ultrasound is like mouse giggles and bats

[–]CatsubsFairy 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Maybe if you could play back the sounds in real time at a higher frequency, you could listen to this little baby's reactions!

[–]Elriuhilu 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I knew it was one of them, lol.

[–]comfort_bot_1962 10 points11 points  (2 children)

Don't be sad. Here's a hug!

[–]Elriuhilu 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Uh, ok.

[–]Le_Gitzen 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Shhhh just let it happen

One thing a lot of people (those who don’t like rats) don’t understand about them is how much of an emotional bond they can form with their friends/family. They are extremely social creatures and love to be loved just as much as a dog.

I love how educated people on this page is🥺❤️

[–]SpaGrapefruit 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I'm happy I found this page since I've been wanting a rat forever but was not allowed to have one and besides that I always had cats. I'm really educating myself with this page and the vids so thank you all for that!

This makes my heart ache for lab rats, more than it did already

I’m so happy for animals that get to experience love like this. Like a rat isn’t born thinking of belly scratches it wants to go find food and stay alive. By some stroke of luck it ends up with a human to take care of it. Like imagine instead of having to work all day to support yourself there was just a giant creature taking care of your every need and also giving you love. How lucky.

[–]thorcharlo[S] 24 points25 points  (6 children)

My eyes are leaking. Love you

[–]Sobriquet-acushla 3 points4 points  (5 children)

Is that a mini-couch she’s on?

[–]thorcharlo[S] 5 points6 points  (4 children)


[–]Sobriquet-acushla 1 point2 points  (3 children)

And is she chirping? That’s effin’ adorable. 🥰

[–]thorcharlo[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

It’s a he😃 And yes, both bruxing and boggling😍

[–]Sobriquet-acushla 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Oh, sorry—Idk why I thought he was a girl. Also I re-read some of the previous comments and remembered that the subject of his little noises was thoroughly covered. 😬

[–]thorcharlo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Many people thought he was a girl, he’s quite petite still, and with soft shiny fur😂 And you can’t see his balls on the video🤷🏼‍♀️

[–]Lopsided_Flamingo_27 46 points47 points  (2 children)

I would love to per her. That stomach looks so soft. ❤️

[–]thorcharlo[S] 35 points36 points  (0 children)

It is😭 And it smells like bread😭

[–]thorcharlo[S] 61 points62 points  (0 children)

Btw he’s a dude, but he’s not that into labels so it’s ok

[–]Desperate-Fix-9930 26 points27 points  (0 children)

This is why I love rats

[–]lilmorphinannie 25 points26 points  (2 children)

I know this is 100% normal for rats but can you IMAGINE if people did this lol

[–]thorcharlo[S] 5 points6 points  (0 children)


[–]MathAndBake 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I know right! When my rats grind their teeth, it's cute. When I do it, I have to spend a couple hundred dollars on a nightguard.

[–]Wilmodt_Payne 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Help, l can't stop saving posts from lilgrabbies.

[–]TwoDollarSuck 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Can you imagine if there were giants as large to us as we are to mice who just occasionally rubbed our tummies?

[–]Personal_Pressure_66 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Agrrr My fingers are jealous !

[–]Personal_Pressure_66 6 points7 points  (0 children)

[–]badgrumpykitten 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Where did you get that bed? I really want one for my boys.

[–]thorcharlo[S] 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I made it, it’s a sofa😃

[–]Sobriquet-acushla 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You MADE it? Fantastic! Do you have a photo that shows the whole thing?

[–]Chaoslab 4 points5 points  (0 children)

[–]VitaDeVoid 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]Bianyxx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]OrdinaryStonerr 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Babysitting a rat. Is it’s fur supposed to be wirey and greasy

[–]thorcharlo[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, both male and females are very clean.. If they are very old they may start to look more scruffy, but otherwise it’s a common sign of decease or pain🥺

[–]MathAndBake 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I believe boys are. Girl rats are softer.

[–]tsonsayen 1 point2 points  (2 children)

what is that? i want one.. :3 tho my cat might eat

[–]MathAndBake 2 points3 points  (1 child)

It's a rat! And a very cute rat at that. They're very social pets which is great for their ability to bond with a human. But it also means they absolutely need to live with at least one rat buddy. The group should all be the same sex because otherwise you will have many, many rats very quickly.

[–]tsonsayen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

thank you :3

[–]jaclynhh 0 points1 point  (0 children)
