||Three months old|
||Black Hooded Rat|
||Hamilton, Ontario, Canada|
my mummy's first little rattie, she adopted me when I was six weeks
old, I remember the day like it was yesterday, she put her hand into the
cage and I came over and climbed on, she was so gentle and she gave me a
hug and kisses even though I was pretty stinky from the cage I was in.
She took me home and played with me on her bed for a while then
introduced me to my cage which was huge, and every day she took me out to
play and explore, and she gave me a bath so that I smell as clean as I
do now. then she went out and found some other lonely ratties and
brought them home too so that I could have some friends.
My mum tells me im really special to her because I make her happy, I
give her kisses whenever I think she is sad and she smiles and tells me
she loves me then I kiss her some more. Whenever she takes me and the
boys out to play I help her teach them to do the tricks she is teaching
me to do, like stand and to high five... I've almost mastered that one,
she gives us yummy treats and kisses whenever we get closer to mastering them.
