Ashley, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ashley
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Paris, Texas, USA
   Ashley likes to run and jump and play. Her favorite thing is racing me. (We think she's trying to race.) Sometimes I think she's actually trying to race the other rats, because she stops and waits until my other rat is beside her. Then she runs in an exact straight line. Whenever she wants to jump she sticks her nose out in the air and stands on the side of something. Then we put something in front of her to jump on to.

    My rat is also very special to me because she is loving and caring. She can jump from one chair to another two feet apart. She also like to bobble her head back and forth. She is the best pet I've ever had!

    Ashley knows many tricks. The one she knows best is when she thinks I'm leaving. I stick my finger in the cage and let her give it a couple kisses. she sits by the door to the cage and waits for me. Ashley also knows her name. Whenever I'm in a hurry to go somewhere, I call her name, then she comes.

    Ashley is a wonderful rat. She sleeps in my shirt when I'm being still, she gives me kisses a lot, and she has never chewed anything of mine up or nibbled on my finger. My other rats on the other hand, well, their not as nice. We've had Ashley for about three years now. She is an old rat. And I know the time may be coming soon for her to leave us. I'll probably never have a rat like her ever again.
