Sammy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sammy
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rex-coat Fancy Rat
Home: Somerset, England
   Samuel Whiskers (Sammy) is an old, but beautiful rex-rat, who recently lost his brother and cage-mate, agouti hooded rat Pod, to old-age, but is still full of energy and enthusiasm for life! Rats make friendly, affectionate and intelligent companions and Sammy is no exception. He spends the majority of his morning fast asleep but is always ready and waiting for play-time in the afternoons and loves his cuddles and lots of veggie rat treats! His prized possession is his wooly hammock bed and he won't let anybody except me, his mom clean out his corner of the cage. Anyone else risks their fingers or their piece of kitchen towel being tugged away and shredded for bedding! Sammy enjoys helping me with my homework (such as chewing up my sheets and stealing my pencils!) and lives for washing himself whilst balanced on my shoulder. He can be grumpy at times but is generally considered by all to be a real mommy's-boy and huge cuddly ball of fur, he's so loving and has lots of friends - he even has his own MySpace page! Sammy is my bestest friend and the most wonderful companion that anybody could ever wish for, everybody in the world should have a rat!
