Waffle, the Pet of the Day
Name: Waffle
Age: Unknown
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy hooded rat
Home: Felton, California, USA
   This is my rat Waffle... she is the love of my life! I bought her at the store in March and I'm not quite sure how old she is but I am guessing she is around seven or eight months. She is currently living in Felton, California. She is very unique in many ways, sweet, and curious and affectionate and smart. But I think her best talent is climbing!

    One day, it was hot in my room, so I took Waffle out and put her in the tree (which is an apple tree) above where I was picking up my dog's doodoo and I started to do my job for like five or six minutes and I stopped to check on Waffle and she wasn't where I had put her. So I freaked out and started to look all around the tree and she was ALL THE WAY NEAR THE VERY TOP BRANCH! I couldn't believe how fast she climbed and that she didn't fall, but I got her down safely and kissed her for a while!

    But, as you can see in the picture, I was at my best friend's house (Casey, whose rat Olive was Pet of the Day) and it was right before dinner and we had the rats out on the chairs. I caught Waffle climbing and I'm not sure which one of us took this picture but I treasure it very much! It shows off both her sweet face and her athletic skill to perfection.
