I think it depends on the rat. It could probably run away, but it might be imprinted on the guy and willing to stick around.

There was a young boy in Milwaukee that I'd always see with his pet parakeet sitting on his shoulder. The bird could certainly have flown away (his primaries weren't clipped), but he always stuck with his boy.
