        As a wild animal, nothing. As a pet, a lot. Like having a pet crow. I would compare the owner's mentality to that of a wolfdog owner.

    You're not alone anon. I've been thinking about it since I read the article below. I wish I had the space to try keep a breeding group but I think it would take a number generations to get close to something as domesticated as Rattus Norwegicus. Completly mad idea but I can dream.

    I think finding the right number of pairs to be able to breed a healthy stock not too inbred would be a serious practical issue if Rattus Rattus isn't in your area.

      don't you think it's unfair that only roof rats have no domesticated variants among the three major house rodents (mice, roof rats, and norway rats)?

        No. Like, for what purpose would you domesticate them?
        >Pets
        In the case of rodents, we already have mice, two species of hamsters, degus, guinea pigs, two species of gerbils, chinchillas and Norway rats that fulfill that niche. For domestic pets in general we have too many to choose from,
        >Food
        Seems retarded.
        >Research and experimentation
        We already have animals for that.
        Adding roof rats to the domestic mix seems retarded. If you just want a pet rat we already have Norway rats.

    You could probably do that within your lifetime.

      yes, this. you could probably do it in a single warehouse facility, with a intensive selection and culling regime.
      but you'd be better off with three or more locations, to prevent infection events etc.
      go for it OP. make it your lifetime's work.

      >Rattus rattus
      >inferior to Rattus norvegicus
      Due to their arboreal habitat, the Rattus rattus expand its faction especially in dense cities with tall buildings and there accordingly some of them are observed to have enhanced their intelligence and physical abilities much more than the normal rattus rattus.
      In my city, they, who are called "superrats", have learnt to avoid glue traps and are known to invalidate rat poisons.
