Burton, the Pet of the Day
Name: Burton
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Rat
Home: Poland
   Burton is a standard agouti, self rat - that's what his coloring is called. Burton was born a wild rat (Rattus norvegicus). I found him and his brothers in hay, and saw his mother was killed by a dog. So I immediately took them home, and trained them and socialized them so they could all be pets. It was really difficult, and I had a lot of doubt, "should I do this?" But he quickly fell in love with me and I fell in love with him, too. He's very clever boy, very smart, and although he's old already (two is old for a rat) he still readily wants to learn.
