Olive, the Pet of the Day
Name: Olive
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy Rat
Home: Fort Myers, Florida, USA
   Hey there all you folks! My name is Olive and I sure am a Florida Cracker, and proud of it! I'm a black-hooded fancy rat and was born on November 31st, 2004. I like to hang around with my cage-mate, Rosie. I used to have another friend, Winnifred, but she passed away a couple of months ago. Even the company of Rosie doesn't make me forget my old pal, who is forever in my heart.

    I am special because I'll eat anything you give me, and I love to run around and play hide-and-go-seek. I'm a very honest hider, though, because I come out from my hiding place as soon as my owner finds me.

    Even though I'm a Cracker, I still am extremely prissy and spend hours tending to my gorgeous fur. That's why it's so shiny! In fact, I love making myself so beautiful that my owner went out and bought me a mirror so I could look at my lovely self while I'm doing my grooming! Sadly, I'm having a mid-life crisis! The hair on my hindquarters is turning into a dark brown and ruining the pure black of my stripe! I asked my owner for some hair dye, but she says that it's not necessary, and that I look beautiful anyway.

    I am a very active rat, and I like to play sports. My favorite sport is running cross-country around the hill by the back yard. I also like going on vacation to my beach house that my owner made me!

    As you can see, I am indeed a precious and special rattie who loves Florida. See you all, Olive
