||Indianapolis, Indiana, USA|
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.
