Screwball, the Pet of the Day
Name: Screwball
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Kennewick, Washington, USA
   This is Screwball. When I got him as a young rat he had a head infection so his balance was all screwed up. This is why his name is Screwball! He has a unique personality - he likes to chase the dogs. Screwball is very special, I don't think he knows he's a rat. He acts more like a dog then a rat. He can walk on his hind legs for a treat or for attention. I recently went on a trip for two days and he wouldn't eat at all while I was gone! This made me realize that we have a special bond. He is the best and most unique of any rats I owned and I used to breed rats, I would have 40 to 60 rats at a time. He is a very special rat. And I love him!
