“ This was our first metope and we enjoyed in greatly. It was good to meet the presenters and handle the rats. Everyone was very friendly and helpful (particularly Raquel). My daughter had a great time and the first thing she said after we left was "when is the next meeting". Thank you to the organizers. ”

“ This is a very friendly group in which like minded individuals share their experiences with pet rats. It's great fun to exchange stories about our pets. Members also pick up great tips on rat care and share information. Whether a person is thinking about getting their first rats, or is a long time "rat slave", there's something for everyone and all are welcome. ”

“ Unfortunately, God only blessed a few of us with the intelligence to know how special are ratties -- and Meet-up is one of the few places we can get together to talk about the critters we love -- our experiences, concerns, questions - etc. Everyone is made to feel welcome -- know matter what level of experience you have -- and everyone tries really hard to make everyone feel VERY welcome. ”
