About Us
Copernicus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Copernicus
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rat
Home: Ventura, California, USA
   Copernicus is really my roommate (David's) pet... when he told me about having a pet rat... I thought ooooooh no! But after two weeks with Copernicus, I fell in love with her and her crazy antics. Copernicus is so spoiled it's truly unbelievable. She follows David just like a little puppy... she gets first class attention. Her diet, well that's another story. When we give her water she insist on Ice Cubes in her water and she loves chicken (she hates shrimp) and fresh fruit.

    When I hold her and try to gave her a kiss, she puts up her paw to block my kiss (I guess she telling me not now). Copernicus' favorite hiding spot is the top shelf of my walk-in closet, ooooh yes, she has full run of the regular bedroom and the Master bedroom. Although she may not have any special ability, she's our whole life. From a person never having a pet... having Copernicus has really changed my life...
