The rats invaded the "Andy in the Morning" studios today for Wet Nose Wednesday.  Carlita Gonzalez, from the Humane Society of West Michigan, brought Captain and Banner in.Captain and Banner are Fancy Rats.  I'm not exactly sure what the difference is between Fancy rats and your run-of-the-mill, garden variety rat, but I think Fancy rats are on the higher intelligence level.  (Sounds good, doesn't it?)

At any rate, for those who DO like rats, they make a good pet.  Captain and Banner are certainly domesticated, so they are hoping to find the perfect home.
