Roo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Roo
Age: Five months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Double Rex Rat
Home: Ohio, USA
   Roo is a Double Rex "hairless" rat. She is approximately five months old. I put "hairless" in quotes because sometimes she is almost bald, and sometimes she has more hair - you can see the difference in her facial markings in these two photos.

    Roo loves flannel shirts mainly because when I first brought her home I would wear one and let her snuggle and nap in the sleeve or pocket. Now if she is loose in a room and doesn't want to be found, all I have to do is lay down one of my flannel shirts and voila! She appears out of nowhere.

    Roo lives with five other rattie girls in a very big Martin's cage and is more than happy snuggling with her furred friends in a hammock or open hamster ball. Her favorite foods are apples, grapes, green beans, peas and strawberries.

    Roo and all of her friends live with my husband and me in Ohio, where they are terribly spoiled and loved beyond reason.
