Dexter, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dexter
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Hooded Rat
Home: Macungie, Pennsylvania, USA
   I remember buying Marley, my first rat, then I read online that it is better to have a friend for them. So I went to my local pet store looking for an affectionate, laid back, sweet, and calm male rat. Instantly some beige and white ratties spotted my eye as I excitedly rushed into the pet store. There were two girls that were black and white hooded, and three boys that were beige hooded. They were all brothers and sisters. I couldn't get one of the girls because I wanted a boy, but I still loved the girls. So I was holding the three boys and the one that seemed the most tamed and calmed was Dexter, the one with the stripe on his back. I fell in love, had to take him home, so we came back the next day and bought him.

    He is so special and playful. He loves having his other ratty friends! He loves playing in this purse that is stuffed with doll clothes and toys! He pushes all the clothes out of the purse, its like a game, he gets really excited and starts bruxing while playing the game. I love Dexter and couldn't ask for a better rat! I am so happy he came into my life! Thank goodness I found him before he was snake food!
