this rat is nearing the end of its life. on average, fancy rats – the type of rat you’ve been caring for – live 2-3 years.

how is it that you work in the small animal department but don’t know the animals you’re paid to care for?

Hello,

Wow! 5yrs is pretty long for a rat to live. They usually live around 8-18months depending on many factors. Many rats die from cancers and tumors. Sounds like your rat has lived a very long life so far! congrats!
