We had a great time and this was our first experience at a pet expo and we loved every minute of it we love interacting with the people and the children who either knew nothing about rats or were previous owners of rats and were excited to share their stories. We were happy just to get the word out there that rats make excellent pets and give people more education on them as pets!
