View Full Version : Introducing Winkie the one-eyed rat

Now that I finally have a way to post pictures, I'd like you to meet Winkie the very spoiled one-eyed rat.


This rat eats as well as I do on steak, hotdogs (he won't eat them unless I nuke them), steak bones, fresh fruit, veggies, yogurt, you name it, he eats it. I absolutely am head over heels in love with this little boy. I have been since the day I rescued him from being sold as a snake's dinner at Petco.

Winkie was walking around on my bed, when he came upon my cat Shortie Girl. They went nose-to-nose and then Shortie Girl started grooming him!! :eek: It was the cutest thing I've ever seen!! I only wish I had my camera handy for that "Kodak" moment.



There have been times when he's been out with me and he would curl up in the pillow behind me and go to sleep. I'd fall asleep forgetting he was there. :eek:
