I've heard that as well. xD
I sort of felt the same when I got my Rats. After a while it's a weird sort of cute.

Mice are pretty cute, but i've never owned any. I went the size up and got rats, instead xD
Did they inbreed a lot and that's why they ended up with genetic problems?

Haha, it's really not so bad!
The tumors don't always happen. A lot of tumors aren't actually tumors, many times you'll find out it's a cyst, that will often pop and be all nasty. But it's sad when it does turn out to be a tumor. sad Normally by the time you know what it is, surgery can be fatal so either they have to be put down or live out their life. (Depending on the pain they'd have)

AActially one of the first rats we got from the store died from a growth/Tommor and two of her babies died of growths when they got old too.

It varys from state to state. In CA, you have to go to an AVMA accredited school, complete the program, then sit for the state boards to get your license.
