Milly, the Pet of the Day
Name: Milly
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Siamese Dumbo rat
Home: Ontario, Canada
   Milly 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.
