||One year old|
is my male rat who has such a character!! He is the
friendliest rat I have ever known and follows me everywhere and when
I go places he sits quietly on my shoulder and loves going out into
the big wide world.
Skitza is a Berkshire rat which is known by his black and white
colorings and he is one year old, which is why he is so curious and
full of life. The life span of a rat is three to five years, so I
guess you could say he is still very young. Skitza is special to me
because of the company he gives me and because of his kind nature.
One of Skitza's favorite activities apart from eating peas and corn,
is going outside for walks on his special harness. I have trained him
how to walk on the lead and he loves it!! He knows the driveway in
front of our house so well, and when we come back from a walk around
the block he will race up the driveway and up the stairs with me
running behind!! It's funny the way some people stop and stare at me
walking a rat, but I find it perfectly normal.
When Skitza is happy he will make a chattering noise which is so
cute!! Every night Skitza and his mate Wally, get a little lid full
of peas and corn as their dinner, along with Soy Milk too. Rats truly
are great pets, and not as dirty and horrible as people think they
