||Seven months old|
||Black Hooded Rat|
||Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA|
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!
