Roxy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Roxy
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy rat
Home: Eugene, Oregon, USA
   Roxy is a Fancy rat; blue fawn split cap stripe odd eye. Here are a few pictures of my sweet Roxy girl! Roxy is one of the sweetest rats I have ever met and is no doubt my favorite out of all my does. She came from Zany Zoo Petstore in Eugene, Oregon... right out of the feeder bin! How can anyone throw this cute ratty in there? When I first laid eyes on her I knew she had to be mine. She was the cutest kitten (that's what baby rats are called) I had ever seen. Not to mention she was the first odd-eyed rat I had seen in person. Odd-eyed rats have two different color eyes, either one black and one pink, or one ruby and the other eye pink. As you can tell she has great contrast between her eyes. She has produced two litters of cute babies, her first litter all velveteens! The bottom picture is of her first litter of velveteen babies. Velveteen rats are curly haired rats with extremely soft fur. Roxy means the world to me. She is always there when I need her, always there to brux in my ear. She is absolutely the best rat ever! I love you Roxy girl.
