||One year old|
||Siamese Dumbo rat|
is my second rat. I had gotten her to keep my other rat, Jazz,
company. She was so small and such a sweet heart. She was very friendly
and was never shy. When I first got her she was almost pure white then
as she grew she started to get brown points like a siamese cat does. She
was a surprise that was welcomed and I am so glad to have her. Milly is
now one year old and shares a giant mansion cage with five other rats.
Milly has her quirks. She is well ... not the brightest bulb in the bunch
but she is sweet. Once in a blue moon she has what I believe are panic
attacks. I do my best to comfort her and her other rat buddies are
always there to make sure she is all right. Within a few minutes she is
right as rain and ready to go.
She loves her food especially cucumber - it is her favorite food of
all time. And she will do anything to get it. Once she climbed right up
my pant leg trying to get some, it was rather cute. I of course rewarded
her effort. Her favorite game is pea fishing. Pea fishing is where you
get a shallow dish and fill it with some water and put some peas in it.
Then you let the rats 'fish' out the peas.
Milly is my special little girl and she is just all around awesome. I
wouldn't trade her for anything in the world.
