Archie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Archie
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Fancy Rat
Home: Indianapolis, Indiana, USA
   We got Archie on October 21th 2010, and he has turned out to be the perfect rat. First of all, I named Archie after my favorite singer David Archuleta. After I first saw Archie, the name just clicked. Plus, the name is just adorable to me, and so is he.

    Archie loves to jump and explore. I thought I had safety proofed my bathroom by putting my clothing hamper and trash can in the bathtub then setting up the play pen in the bathroom. But it didn't take him long to figure out how to climb in and out of the pen, then jump onto the edge of the bathtub and jump inside of it to explore! He loves to eat carrots, grapes, cheerios, crackers, sunflower seeds, or anything else he can get his paws on. If you set Archie on the bottom stair he decides whether he wants to go up or down the stairs and makes sure he gets to do what he wants. He loves to chase the string on my camera, climb the play pen, climb on top of your head and try to chew your hair, sit on your shoulder, jump, and just be able to run around freely. This isn't a 100% possible in our house since we have so many other pets such as our cats and dog and the other little caged animals. Archie is becoming a perfect pet and I wouldn't want it any other way. I love you Archie <3! I'm glad I conned my mom into letting me get you instead of another hamster:)

   Archie has a video montage on YouTube.
