name is Stacey and this is my pet rat, Cheese. She is four months old in
this picture, but is eight months old now, and she is my first rat and my
best bud. She loves to sleep in my jacket or even in my hair! She likes to
keep me company as I do my homework. When I take her for trips around the
house, she sits in my sleeve and pokes her little head out. It's just so cute!
Cheese also likes to snuggle down with her sister, named Whiskers, and
they enjoy play wrestling at night which keeps me awake. I named her and
her sister after a saying by a cartoon character, "Rat in the Hat,"
whose saying is "Oh cheese and whiskers" which is what I say now
every time they get into trouble! I cannot stay mad at them too long!
Just look at that cute face! Cheese is my best buddy.
