Thank you all for your replies. I had a Guinea pig that lived with me all through four years of high school and three years of college. I loved him very much. I think rats would be somewhat different... smarter.

I know that my guinea pig was very smart, and knew when to expect me home, etc. He needed a lot of physical contact, not exercise equipment... he exercised by running up and down my person and around my room. :p

My daughter is still hoping for the rat, but I have told her she needs to show me she can keep her living space "picked up" for a consistant month beore I will consider it.

We shall see.....
