Sciron, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sciron
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Albino Rat
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   This is Sciron, my albino rat. He's quite feisty and active. He lives in a large ceramic jar inside his cage. I tried to exchange his bed (the jar) numerous times with other bedding but he's never happy unless he has the jar. I guess he feels protected and secure inside it. I've tried getting him to use his exercise ball but he doesn't show any interest in it. Whenever I put him in it he just sits there and doesn't move. On the other hand, he loves to be outside in the grass. I take him out into the yard and let him run around while I sit on the swing and keep an eye on him. He's not too fond of baths, either. Whenever he hears the bath water running he gets squirmy because he knows what's coming. He's always happy when the bath's done and he gets to sit in his nice warm towel to dry off. He's a lot of fun and he always keeps you on your feet.
