A new study spotted by People Magazine reveals that children are reportedly more satisfied with pet rats than any other animal.
The pet ownership study, conducted online by pet product review site RightPet found that kids between the ages of 10 and 17 reported being happier with rats than cats, dogs, or other popular pets. However, their satisfaction diminishes as they get older, while satisfaction with cats and dogs increases with age. Young children most likely enjoy rats because they’re smart, cheap, and easy to care for.
