I have always heard this. In fact, my grandmother went kind psycho whenever she heard that I was actually breeding Sugar Gliders and Chinchillas. "Don't you know that if you have a rodent in your house that it'll attract other rats!?"

It's a myth. The only reason that rats would be attracted to your home is if it is a mess. Rat/mouse food all over the floors, not taking the trash out regularly, having a pile of dishes in the sink for days on end, etc, etc, etc.

Or, if your neighbor's house is like the one described above and they decide to bomb the place. Then all the rats would swarm to your house. I had that happen a few years ago. You could actually see the rats migrating from one home to the other. It was insane.

Hope this helps!
