was my birthday June 26, 2011, and since I love Petsmart because I love
pets, I got some stuff for my pets there. I remember looking in the Fancy
Rat tank and seeing two small critters, but I couldn't tell what they looked
like because they were in an igloo with bedding on them. I asked the
employee if I could hold the rats. She lifted up the igloo and handed me a
small tan tiny beautiful ratty. He was all tan. I said, "Oh my, mom, I
have to take it! It's pretty rare for all tan rats to be around this
area." He is officially a Standard Eared Champagne Self Rat. He was so
calm and adorable! He seemed really tame! So my mom said, "Okay, go ask
dad," and my dad said yes!
So the employee put him a box and let me take over. I was in the car so
excited and happy to have a new wonderful rat. Oliver's nickname is Ollie.
I love him so so much! He is so special! What makes him special is how
calm and tamed he was when he was just a little baby. Now he is much
bigger and has his crazy times then he is really calm and affectionate and
social. He will just lay on my legs and tuck his head in and fall asleep!
He is such a beautiful and special rat! All the other rats we have
accepted him happily. I am so happy I was at Petsmart at the right time to
buy him and make him an addition to my family. I'm so happy he is in my
life. He made my birthday the best one yet! Thank you Oliver for being so special!! :)
