||Eight months old|
is my little, or maybe I should say big, boy. I was at the pet
shop, looking at the cute little rats, and my mom told me, "That rat
that the employees are holding is huge." So I went to check it out.
Sure enough, they were holding a big albino rat. They let me hold him,
and they told me his story. They said that someone had bought him and
some other rats. But in a fight, he had got scratched in the eyes, and
his people thought he was blind. So, they took him back to the shop.
He had been there for a long time, so the people who worked there put
him up for adoption, for free. When they told me that, I felt so sorry
for him. I begged my mom to let me get him, and eventually she said
yes. She said he was my graduation present. We bought him an aquarium
to live in, and supplies, and took him home.
Since then he's been a very mature and respectful little rattie, and
settled in fast. He will climb up on my shoulder, and he's getting more
active every day, even if he is blind, here he's "helping" with the
monthly bills. He's very special to me.
