Tutor description

For thousands of years rodents have been viewed and treated as pests, disease carriers, vandals and the harbingers of catastrophic epidemics. Poisons and traps have been used for centuries to rid homes and neighborhoods of these destructive creatures, the population perpetually frightened by the consequences of allowing the rats to live. For centuries, however, there has existed a completely separate world; very different people who see beyond the stigma and usual image of rats – these people keep and adore them as pets. Rats are intelligent, friendly, affectionate and full of personality – and though many people believe them to be pests no matter what form they come in - many, many people still keep them as friends and companions.
