Casey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Casey
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Domestic Rat
Home: Orland Park, Illinois, USA
   This is Casey. She's a jolly little thing - always playing and being silly. Her favorite thing to do is run around on the couch and play "tummy tickle." I tickle her belly, she runs away, and then she comes scampering back for more tickles. She can go on for hours. Casey comes when you call her and is incredibly gentle. She often holds my fingers in her little hands and just gives me kiss after kiss after kiss. Her favorite treats are banana chips and peas, and she's always willing to share with her cagemates. She definitely does not fit the stereotype of a rat that many people fear. She's the sweetest, most good-natured little buddy I've ever had. Her beautiful markings are just an added bonus. Casey is my first rat and the reason that I now share my life with eight rats... and one very jealous parrot.
