Hi all!

My name's Morgan and I've only been living in Ireland for about 3 years now. I'm originally from New York. I'm a lecturer at Griffith College Cork and like to paint and write comics. I currently have a horror story coming out on Halloween in the new Cork Comic collection book.

I'm here to learn about rats as much as I can. I'm currently looking into getting two of my own. I've always wanted a rat since I was little (my cousin had one and we would play with her all the time) but my own mother never let me have one.

I've been travelling quite a bit for the past 6 years, so I never had the opportunity to own a pet, but now that I'm somewhat settled, I've been looking into it. I'm a huge dog person. I love dogs more than anything, but sadly, I don't plan on staying in Ireland for more than another 3 or so years. I'm not sure if I will leave or not, but I know for certain that I'm not going to stay here forever. Getting a dog would be a good 10-20 year investment of time and money that I do not currently have. Taking a dog with me as I move to another country would be very cruel.

But then it hit me - I've always wanted a rat and now I can finally get one myself! They're sociable, trainable, adorable, and they are more of a 2-3 year investment of my time.

And not intending to make this note go a bit dark, but I've always felt that animals were great for therapy for depression. My previous dogs have always helped me in he worst of times. I want something to take care of and look after, I want something new to learn about. I want to keep some diversity in my life.

So here I am! Smile and I hope I get to know you all as well.

Cheers!

I've always explained to people that Fancy Rats are just like tiny dogsm in attitude and habits, so it should suit you greatly Wink
Welcome to the forum, and I wish you the best of luck with your book release Smile

Hi ! I got my two ratties for the very same reasons as you and after a year I think it is one of the best decisions I made (although they keep me busy when I would just like to die in my bed haha) ! Rats are trully amazing and lovable !
And if you are interested in training yours, let me know and I would love to have a chat with you about it Smile !!
Hope to see you soon Smile
