||Three months old|
||Black Hooded Dumbo Rat|
||New York, USA|
over three long years, I wanted a pet rat. I was close to going insane
over not having one when I finally got permission from my parents this
summer! And boy was the wait worth it! I got Hollingsworth and another
rat, Lenoxxe, in mid-August when they were just a month old and small
enough to fit in your hand!
I immediately loved Hollingsworth because I've always wanted a black
hooded rat, and his dumbo ears and bugged-out eyes just made my heart
melt! Hollingsworth has since became the friendliest, craziest little
rat ever! He's a little insane I think, but defiantly has a heart of
gold. And its not the only heart he has either! What I didn't notice
until I got home, was that part of his hood is shaped like a heart,
(or a map of Tasmania!) I call it "Hollingsworth's Heart."
Hollingsworth's favorite thing to do is eat of course! I think some of
his favorite delicacies are dried shrimp, fish flakes, doggy kibble,
and the egg-cookies I make for him and Lenoxxe sometimes. He also
enjoys wrestling with the much-larger Lenoxxe, and 99 out of 100
times, he gets pinned first! I think I've only seen Hollingsworth win
at wrestling once or twice, but that doesn't stop him! In fact,
there's no stopping Hollingsworth at doing anything he sets his crazy
little mind to! I take him and Lenoxxe outside for walks on their
harnesses frequently and both of them really enjoy climbing this one
bush in our yard. Lenoxxe likes to sit on a low branch and take in
nature, but Hollingsworth just likes to climb! I usually have to pull
him down before he can get too high up in the bush! I think I'll end
this thing with words of wisdom: Good things come to those who wait!
And boy is Hollingsworth ever a good thing!
