The SPAZ RATS is an educational website only. I do not sell, or give away my rats for pets, breeders, or feeders, nor do I sell merchandise to make money. I freely hand out advice on rat care and health. In order to enjoy the privilege of a cost-free website, advertizements must be accepted as is. The ads that are attached to the web pages throughout the SPAZ RATS website have been put there by a third party. A "web-crawler" picks out certain key words in the HTML coding and these key words determine what kinds of ads will appear on the page. Neither Tripod nor I have control over these advertizements. I understand, and agree, that some ads are offensive and have no place on a Rat Lover's website. Due to the offensive companies who choose to place their ads with the SPAZ RATS, I appologize for their blatant disregard and lack of respect for our beloved pet Fancy Rats and the contents of this site that is devoted to them.
This website is lobbying to have the scientific name of our pets changed to:
RATTUS NORVEGICUS DOMESTICUS
And therefore recognized as the Pet Fancy Rat
