Basil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Basil
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Fancy rat
Home: Phoenix, Arizona, USA
   Basil and I are best buds. I always take time to play with him at least once a day. When I got him, I got him for free. A friend of mine had recently bought a pregnant rat and when the babies were born I picked Basil out of the litter. He is named for John Cleese's character Basil Fawlty from the old British comedy show, "Fawlty Towers." His favorite food is sunflower seeds and his favorite game is to knock over his purple house because he knows that I will put it back the way it was. Basil loves me so much that he doesn't like to be on anyone else's shoulder but mine. People who think they don't like rats have never met Basil. He is a wonderful friend.
