is a PEW - that's a Pink-Eyed White rat, and she's a female.
Snowball is one of our most spoiled babies we have here at Little
Loveables Rats N Rescue. She was to be snake food and came to us one
day as my wife was watching all the little ratties in a feeder cage
playing and running around, not knowing what was in store for them so
soon. All of them, that is, but one little girl that was sitting in
the corner of their cage watching my wife. This little girl would move
around the cage as my wife would walk around to look from a different
side. Each time, the cute little baby would move with her and then
prop up on the glass as to say, please don't let this happen to me.
Well after about 20 minutes of this, my wife told the store worker to
get her out. She got right on my wife's shoulder and began to chatter
as if to say "Thank you so much." Well, long story short... that's
all it took. Home she came.
She is now one of our most loved and most active ratties. We use
Snowball in show-and-tell with the 4-H, Cub Scouts, and other group
meetings on our health care and rodent awareness classes we give at
Little Loveables. As you can see in her photo, she so at home with her
mommy. She is just a loveable little snuggler.
