My name is Dr Luke and I am here to help you today.
My biggest concern with putting those animals together is that rats will eat birds.
It is possible that if you got the rat very young that it would grow up with the dove but there is still a risk that it would eat the dove - sorry.
Also rats have been know to kill guines pigs too - sorry.
I think you would need to keep the rat pretty separate.
