Phoebe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Phoebe
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Portland, Oregon, USA
   My rat's name is Phoebe, she's a hooded rat and one and a half years old. As you can tell, she loves to strike a pose for the camera. Her favorite holiday is Halloween!! Phoebe is a wonderful rat! She's cuddly and loves to be held and snuggled. She loves to give kisses and likes to play hide and seek using the pillows on our bed. She's extremely affectionate and playful. She sleeps in a little covered hammock (made of a washcloth) in her cage and when she hears a noise, she pops her head out to see what's going on. Phoebe is our third rat and I cannot say enough good things about pet rats. They are loyal, affectionate and very loving. Phoebe is very social and can't get enough attention. She's also very entertaining at times. She climbs up her cage like a little monkey and hangs on spread-eagle until someone comes to get her. She's always making us laugh :)
