Zoe, the Pet of the Day
Name: Zoe
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Berkshire rat
Home: New York, USA
   The fuzzy one I wish to show all of you is my rat, Zoe. She's a standard ear, standard coat silvered black Berkshire, and getting a little on the chubby side (but it almost makes her cuter). Zoe has three loves - food, sleep, and scritches. She spends her days lounging by the cage door until I walk into the room, in which case she jumps up and starts begging for treats and snuggles (And of course, I oblige, although the treats are being cut down because of her weight gain, the little piggy!)

    Zoe lives with my two other girls, her sister and stepsister, but of them all is the friendliest and the most squishable - she has been likened to a big, stuffed bear - soft, warm, and incredibly sweet. She has charmed even the most vehement rat haters into wanting to pet her fuzzy little head, and everyone who meets her falls in love with my chubby little sweetheart.
