Frances Bean, the Pet of the Day
Name: Frances Bean
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Dumbo Rat
Home: Underhill, Vermont, USA
   Frances Bean is new to our household. She is a "Rat Rescue" from someone that accidentally bought two pregnant rats and ended up with 27! She has made fast friends with our resident rat Toby, who lost his brother a month ago. Frances is sweet, inquisitive, and very loving. She loves to perch up on your shoulder and groom herself, and has even introduced herself to our cats.

    She's five weeks old in this picture, but is now four months old. Frances is a very sweet and loving to her rat friends she lives with. She spends hours grooming Toby, our neutered male rat, and even shares her wheel to take a run at the same time with her new "sister" Ursula. She comes running whenever she hears the yogurt treat container and even though she is tiny can fit two of them in her mouth at once! She likes to ride around the house in a pocket and loves to snuggle with her human companions. She is such a silly and sweet girl and really has been a great addition to our household.
