It is a possibility that it is a wild rat with a genetic mutation that makes its colouring different to normal. So id be a little wary when you catch it, make sure you try any see how it reacts to people, its behavior etc. Wild rats are alot different to domestic rats, definately not pet material. Im sure it probably will turn out to be just a pet, but still, until you know for sure be careful not to get fingers too close to the cage!
