I am getting a new Rattie, Templeton. He is a single rat, and I have decided to keep it that way because he was never social, I heard. I have never owended a rat before, but I am getting into the hobby. What is the Best way to welcome him into my home, what is the best rat food, that things. Please awenser!

I always fed mine an approved pre-packaged 'lab chow'. But I also gave them table scraps - not much mind you, but rats eat anything. Give them a small sampling of veggies, bread, meat, cheese, whatever they like along with the packaged diet.

Good luck!
