||Seven months old|
||Black Hooded rat|
||Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA|
is a special lady because she loves to climb around and explore
but if I say her name or make kissy noises at her she comes right back
to me. She is the sweetest rat who was rescued before she was fed to a
snake and now she and her six brothers and sisters are all spoiled rotten!
This picture is of Skunk being very curious about my eye! (Do you have
any idea how much rat whiskers tickle?)
Skunk is very intelligent. She knows the word "kiss" and she will touch
her nose to my lips or cheek. She is very, very snuggly and affectionate
and thrives on cuddles although loud noise, thunder and sudden movements
scare her. She also loves to wrestle my hand when I chase her.
