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
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!
