No, they’re not just the creepy critters that dart out of nowhere on subway platforms and city streets: Rats actually make great pets, too. Incredibly smart and affectionate, these rodents are beloved by their owners for those reasons — and this owner took it to the next level by actually training her rat to fetch. Here’s what she had to say on her YouTube page: *I train my pet rats using clicker training and positive reinforcement. Their favorite treats are cheerios, but they also enjoy working for dog treats, peas, and dinner left overs.* With that in mind, she decided to train her little critter to do something amazing. What’s more: The rat does her trick on cue — all her owner has to do is sneeze.
