||One year old|

||Meriden, Connecticut, USA|
is my best friend in all the world. Bella! Bella is my Black hooded
rat. She is the sweetest and most loving pet I have ever owned. I have
owned gerbils, hamsters and a dog. Bella's loving and loyal personality
beat out all of there's by a lot.
Bella is what I call a survivor. My boyfriend and I saved her from the
worst pet store on the face of the earth. We gave her a much needed
second chance. In that she taught me things that I would have never
gained if I never found her. I have a new found passion for rats. These
animals are so intelligent and in tune with ones emotions. Bella knows
when something is wrong. She feels exactly what I feel and when I feel it.
Bella and I are very much alike. As a rat she's automatically labeled a
certain way. Labeled as 'gross' or 'dirty' before people get to know how
special or loving a rat can really be. I am also labeled well before
anyone can ever get to know me. My family despises my precious Bella.
Most of my family is unwilling to even pet her or see how special she
really is. If they only knew what a real life saver this four legged one
pound critter was. She saved me from so many things. She saved me from
myself. I love you Bella, if it wasn't for you. I wouldn't be here
typing this, you deserve so much more then just a day in your name.
Thank you, for all the joy you've brought me. You truly are my guardian angel.
