Annie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Annie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
   My pet is Annie, she is a hooded rat. Although she is honey colored she is still a hooded rat - that's just her breed, not a description of her coloration. She is three yrs old. She is special to me because she lights up the room when I come in to see her. We play on the couch and I give her good treats that she enjoys. She loves being petted and played with, and her little whiskers tickle! She enjoys her treats, and likes to chew on and shred cardboard tubes. She is so cute, and such a sweetheart. Some people may say they "don't like rats," but anyone who has met my Annie comes away with a different idea, you just have to love this little girl. I know I do.

    She has been sick lately but is hanging in. I hope to have her for a long period of time. But I know that their life expectancy is shorter than that of a dog or a cat, so I plan to enjoy her for as long as we can be together.
