||Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada|
is my new friend, and already she has proven to be the most
awesome pet I ever had. I am not sure of her age, she is maybe a couple
of months old at the most. She was a sick girl when I bought her, but
something told me she would get better. The pet store was not going to
sell her, but I ask them to let me have her, and I promised not to blame
them for selling me a sick rat.
Well, three weeks later, she was on her feet and running around my room.
Twyla keeps me company and cheers me up after a stressful day at school.
She loves to cuddle and give kisses on the cheek, as well as lick any
bare skin she can find.
She also likes to tease the cats, as she knows I won't let them hurt
her. She will run up them when they are sleeping, and squeak right
beside their head. It is so funny to see Muffy jump in the air from a
dead sleep. Muffy doesn't hurt Twyla, though, she's just surprised.
I never thought I would own a rat let alone a Dumbo rat. That's what
Twyla is - a happy, healthy, crazy Dumbo rat. I can't say "I'm going to
the pet store" without taking Twyla along with me. If I try to leave her
behind in her cage with Rambles her cagemate, she squeaks so loud I
can't resist. I have to take her! She's the best!
