concat(*records) public

Add one or more records to the collection by setting their foreign keys to the association’s primary key. Since << flattens its argument list and inserts each record, push and concat behave identically. Returns self so method calls may be chained.

class Person < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :pets
end

person.pets.size # => 0
person.pets.concat(Pet.new(name: 'Fancy-Fancy'))
person.pets.concat(Pet.new(name: 'Spook'), Pet.new(name: 'Choo-Choo'))
person.pets.size # => 3

person.id # => 1
person.pets
# => [
#       #<Pet id: 1, name: "Fancy-Fancy", person_id: 1>,
#       #<Pet id: 2, name: "Spook", person_id: 1>,
#       #<Pet id: 3, name: "Choo-Choo", person_id: 1>
#    ]

person.pets.concat([Pet.new(name: 'Brain'), Pet.new(name: 'Benny')])
person.pets.size # => 5
