Roxy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Roxy
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Berkshire Rat
Home: Southend-On-Sea, Essex, England
   Roxy is my pet Berkshire Rat who lives with me and my partner in Southend-On-Sea, Essex. I feel she should be featured because she is very mischievous and a real character. She steals our chocolates and runs off with them. She never sits still, she's always on the run, jumping off our sofa, onto the coffee table. She hates being in her cage, and has escaped on numerous occasions. When in her cage, if she can hear we are in, she shakes the cage door violently so we can't ignore her! She lives next to our front door and makes a very good guard-rat - jumping up and making noise if anybody comes to the door.

    I feel she is special because she has changed the opinions of so many people who dislike rats - she is affectionate and beautiful, which are two characteristics that not many people associate with Rats. Roxy's the best!
