^ Rats as in live pet rats?  I'm not sure if that'd be a good idea; it might even be against hotel policies.  You may want to call them up and ask.  (I don't think it violates any con rules...)

Yeah. Live pet rats would probably be a health code violation. >_<

umm. If you're staying at home, but not going to be bringing them into a hotel, how are you proposing bringing them to con when con is in a hotel?

That's funny.  But yeah, you should still see if they'd be okay with rats being there.

do you drive? or are you going with someone who has a car? cuz if you are then why don't you keep them in there? that is if the hotel doesn't allow pets, i mean.

A high energy place like a con? For the safety of your rats, I say leave them at home. I can see you getting shoved or glomped unexpectedly and having the poor critter go flying. If it lands on the ground, it only takes one timely foot to do some serious damage. Best to leave these guys at home.

Most pets are being banned from private places anyways nowadays unless they're service animals. I would be surprised if a hotel was okay with a rat. Rats are still looked upon as dirty creatures from a lot of people (I find pet rats cute myself).

I say bring them to cosplay meetings instead! Show off their cosplays at smaller events where they'll be safer. :) Take pictures of their cosplays, too! I'd like the see them since I don't frequent meetings a lot.

Then definitely leave them at home. If you survived last year without them, you can survive this year. Just hearing that you got attacked and pinned down makes me very, very nervous for the safety of your pets. Rats are not durable creatures when it comes to going up against a human being. We've got at least 100 lbs on them, and most of us many more than that. Even turtles get killed when stepped on.

Seriously, thought! At con meetups, people will be more inclined to want to feed them and pet them, I'd bet!

I would love to see them! I used to keep mice (can't any more due to my allergies) so I love seeing people's tiny pets.

I wish I could bring my parrot to the con, but it's just not feasable. Although what sort of costume *would* go with a grey parrot? I can't think of any in anime.

2009 con we brought our two greyhounds; we were on the 14th floor and the elevator was crazy but they did really good! We even had portraits done in the photobooth. They got a lot of strange looks but they were welcomed by the hotel :) with advance notice, of course. Red Lion and Hilton both allow pets. I might worry about small pets like rats, though; they are so fragile and with the crowds and all...

Yes but I checked the other day they will allow them. ^^ and i ll get their little rat bag it says rat on board.  on the back and along the straps of the carrier dosent look like a normal back pack since its small my grandfather made it for me ^^. so if i do bring them look out for my black bag. they are small and all but normally sit on my shoulders or in their little bag. and they come by name.. well mushi dose not lusk o.o it depends on who i can get to watch them over that weekend becuse =.= they need food and water.
