was a very special rat. He passed away a year ago actually.
Helios and I had a very special bond. He was my lab rat for school. I
became very attached to him and we worked very well together in our lab
projects. He could run through a 3 foot by 3 foot maze in three seconds, and
he would do it just to come back to me, no food or treat reward needed.
Helios was very protective of me. He would stay in the upper corner of
his cage watching me until I would go to sleep at night. He is still very
much alive in my heart and it is not often that a person has such a
special bond with a pet. Helios is missed very much.
