||Ten weeks old|
||Roanoke, Virginia, USA|
got Darla from a pet store about three weeks ago. She is a Blue Capped Dumbo
Rat. She had been there for a couple of weeks and I kept going back thinking
about how much I wanted her until finally my mom told me I could have her. It
took me forever to name her. Usually names come easily for my animals but not
for her. Eventually I settled on Darla Faye because I couldn't choose between
the two names. I may have not had her very long but she already has a special
place in my heart. She loves to cuddle and go on shoulder rides. She also
loves to play with me and her three rattie sisters. She already knows her name and
will peek her cute little face out of wherever she is to see what you want.
You can usually find her in the hammock with her sisters sleeping in one big pile.
Darla is a free ranging rat so I wake up at odd times of the night with her
sticking her face in my nose, mouth or ears. One picture is with her friend
Percie the rat and Lillie the dog. I love her so much! She is a sweet little rat.
