Rosie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rosie
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Silver-Fawn Hooded Rat
Home: South West Florida, USA
   Hi there! This is Rosie, my little rat. She lives with her cagemate, Olive, and is neighbors with two dumbo-eared rat brothers named Baron and BlackJack. When Olive's rat friend, Winnie, passed away, I knew that I had to go get Olive another friend so she wouldn't be so stressed and sad. I went to my local pet store and low and behold, there was Rosie. She was a special find because she was turned down when another lady came to buy her earlier that week. She returned her because she was "anti-social" and did not get along with other rats or people. Supposedly. But, when I held her in my hands, I knew she would be great and all she did was cuddle with me and sleep in my arms. I took her to Olive, and they have been best buddies ever since, and very rarely do they argue. For some uncanny reason, Olive is the only rat Rosie accepts. She does not get along with the brothers in the cage next to her, and I assume the rats that the lady owned when she brought Rosie home were not to her liking, either. But Olive has always been her buddy.

    Rosie is talented, too. She is good at posing for pictures, and likes to fish for peas and corn. This rat is definitely one of a kind!
