Bella, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bella
Age: Four months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Marysville, Washington, USA
   Bella is a Hooded Rat who stole my heart while I was buying food and bedding for my other rat, Rogue. She was propped back against the cage wall cleaning her belly. Hence the name Bella. I wasn't looking to buy a second rat but I couldn't resist when I saw her. She is very fast and agile. She loves to perch herself up on the water bottle to get the best view of whats going on. She sleeps in a large blue flexible tube where she and Rogue construct her bed. When she wants to play with Rogue, she will nuzzle up to her and sometimes lick her to get her attention. She loves to jump on Rogues' back for little rides also.

    When Bella sees the camera come out for picture time, she stops what she's doing to pose for me. The flash must mesmerize her. She will be still or move slightly towards my voice when I want her to change her angle. She's such a little model. Her favorite foods are sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and cheddar cheese. And she always comes, front and center, for her Yogies (treats).
