Ember, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ember
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Domestic Rat
Home: Ohio, USA
   Ember was rescued from being a feeder rat and when she came home she was amazingly shy and scared and we did not know if she would ever come around. Despite her small size and the rough start she got Ember has become an amazing little girl she cares for her sick (neutered) older "brother" Yuki and keeps him clean and makes sure he stays warm. She loves out time and enjoys nothing more than cuddling in mommy's hoody or laying on the couch. She even likes to try to climb on our cat's head.

    She is the sweetest little girl who craves human attention and is very gentle despite having started out her life neglected and as a feeder rat. Her Favorite " game" tag ... She runs over and climbs on my shoulder then runs off begging me to catch her and play with her. She is very affectionate towards me she is a little why with new people but she is willing to run over and check them out she is never aggressive in fact if she gets annoyed she just licks you. My cat is actually deathly afraid of her teeny Ember runs over and tries to climb on her and my cat who is 10+ times bigger than her tries to run. They play catch the cat lol. In the group picture Yuki is the almost all white one, the Beige Hooded Dumbo is Apollo her other brother, they all get along very well.
