Often rats from pet shops/garden centres/irresponsible breeders will not live as long because they have had a poor start in life, or simply down to poor breeding.

I agree with what Aquajen said. My first rats that I had when I was young were pet shop rats and 2 died of a stroke at 10months old :(

I'm sorry to hear about Tibbs, R.I.P :(

I lost my first 3 rats (pet shop boys) very young. Two at 12 months (stroke and tumour) and the last at 15 months (also from a stroke).

My boy Charlie had a stroke at a very young age, about 6months or so and he lived a fairly long happy life, he just had a slight head tilt and was rather clumsy.

Lol thank you guys!!! I probably won't buy from there again. My 2new boys are from a different, responsible, trustworthy place so hopefully they will live longer. :dumbobaby: :dumbobaby: :hearts:
