Nima the Fancy Rat, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nima
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Fancy Rat
Home: Waltham, Massachusetts, USA
   Nima is one of the best pets I could ever ask for. She is highly intelligent and beautiful. She helped me get through a lot of rough times. Nima can sense when I am sad. When I am and she is on me, she will snuggle up with me and just stay there for hours and she gives me kisses.

    When she was first born at the pet store where my mom worked, she was just the most energetic little baby that was there. She was the sweetest thing, always trying to clean her sisters and play with her mom. So when I actually got to choose my rats I ended up choosing her! It was kind of a battle between me and another person because we both wanted her and I got her, thank God.

    I decided to get rats because they are easy to take care of they are very intelligent and smart and where I live we can't have cats or dogs so we were kind a limited on the pets we could get. I just saw rats' little faces and decided to go with them and they are the most amazing animals that I have ever owned.

    Nima does know some tricks; she can stand up on her hind legs and dance around in a circle, but does so only sometimes and only if I have a treat in my hand. She loves her treats. When she was younger, her favorite game was playing tag - if I held still, she would run over and hit me with her foot then run away. We could just play that for hours, but now that she's gotten older that she doesn't really play as much. When rats become older, they become couch potatoes.

    Nima loves to cuddle, and she loves to give kisses, but I can't always get her to do it. If she's in a really really good mood one day, she'll just give you a kiss. She loves to organize her own cage and put her own toys and places for food in different places, make up her own little blankets, make up her own beds and fix around her boxes. She doesn't like when I touch it, so I really do think that she is a very independent rat. I just love my Nima so much and I don't think I can get it all in words, but she really is amazing!
