||Six months old|
is my first rat. I have some cats and a dog, but Pepper is my
favorite. I used to have two mice, but rats have a whole lot more
personality than most other rodents.
Pepper loves to ride on shoulders and he licks instead of biting. He
eats rat diet, peanuts, sunflower seeds, Jell-O, and pudding. He also
enjoys it when I sing to him. He has this little mission of keeping me
happy, the little sweetheart. I think of him as my baby. If you don't
have a rat already, get one! They are wonderful with little kids from
any age if they are responsible enough to care for them. I just turned
ten, and Pepper's helped me through the end of 4th grade into the
beginning of 5th grade. They get up to about a pound in weight, and they
aren't as fragile as mice. And Pepper is just great!
