Skunk, the Pet of the Day
Name: Skunk
Age: Seven months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Black Hooded Rat
Home: Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA
   Skunk 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 her and her six brothers and sisters are all spoiled rotten! She was named for the white almost stripe in her back "hood."

    This picture is of Skunk running around on my bed. She is always very curious about everything. Skunk is very intelligent - she knows the word "kiss" and she will touch her nose to my lips or cheek. Oh, do those rattie whiskers tickle! 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. She's just a great little girl!
