There was a 1 out of 15 (6.66%) chance of getting the Golden Rat from the Rat Box, and a 14 out of 15 (93.33%) chance to get a Rat.

  • This is the second pet that has the word "Golden" in it, with the first being the Golden Penguin. Other golden pets include the Golden Ladybug, Golden Unicorn, Golden Dragon, and the Golden Griffin.
  • Once players change the Golden Rat's name, they cannot change it back since the word "Golden" would get tagged unless they delete the name and save it. This is to prevent scamming.
  • This is one of the few pets that have dance tricks.
