Merlin, the Pet of the Day
Name: Merlin
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rat
Home: London, UK
   This my Merlin, who is a beautiful blue/grey rat. He celebrated his 2nd birthday on 17th July, with his four girlfriends (the legs of one and tails of two can be seen in this picture). I have had him since he was five weeks old and was the size of my finger. Now he barely fits in both my hands. He came to me from a pet shop, where he had been abandoned by his mother and was much smaller than his brothers and sisters.

    He is the most affectionate rat and loves nothing more than sitting on my lap and being tickled between the ears. His favorite treat is choccy drops, if allowed he would eat a whole packet in one sitting. He is the best pet anyone could ever have and has bought me nothing but love and fun.
