Wink The Adventures of Socks - The Journey of a Rat Like No Other!

Hi Ya'll.
Meet Socks-A-Rat, my lovable pet rattie! She is the best girl ever, so sweet and cute! I woulden't trade her for the world!!! She is from Petco, but healthy as can be, even according to our vet, WAAAY too friendly. (Namely, with our dog ) She has a fun personaility, and is really smart. I have created her courses of rat agaility, and she whizzes through them! Espically the tunnel, not so much the A-Frame and Rat Walk. But she jumps great and is learning weave barrels. I use my Breyer Horse Stuff, since it fits her. Yes, she is alone. I know, rats are supposed to have friends, but I really would not trust her with another rat at this point, she would probably get jealous and kill it. Anyways, this is going to be her Story, where I will post pics and vids and updates!
RAT ON!

I hi-jacked Mom's computer... YES!

Hi Everyone,
This is Socks here, commanding the computer from her mom! Meeeheeee! Just wanted to let y'all know that today we did some fun training, like coming to mom's finger when I tap. She also tried to get me to run onto her shoulder, but well, I like my freedom WAAY too much to be bothered to run up and down, up and down her arms! :P Then mom let me in my rat ball and let my cruise around the patio for a while! But then there were a bunch of little Earthquakes shaking things up, and I started freaking out and running like crazy to shelter, but my rat ball dosen't fit anywhere!!!! So mom came and got me, and she put me away really quick, not like she usually does, feeding me and loving and talking, but real quick. She was shaking, I could feel it in her fingers. I think she was scared of the Earthquake. Probably becuase she knows she's too big to hide, unlike me, since I can fit through almost anything!

Oh no! She's coming! Better scamper!
Hey, lets see some rattie friends!
Byeeeeeee!

She's a cutie! I used to have rats, I love them they make great pets! I'm hoping now that I have my own place I'll have time for them again!

One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...

Aww, what a sweet little girl! It looks like you give her plenty of attention so she is not going to miss having a friend as much. :)

All animals deserve respect, not just the cute and pretty ones.
Without "bugs", we would lose about 1/3 of our food, be nose high in decay, and entire ecosystems (including everything that supports the popular animals!) would collapse.

Yes.. I cannot imagine how much trouble she would get into with another rattie friend, I would probably come in one day and they would have figured out how to open thier door, lol. I'll post some pics of her doing agility later :)

All my girls do with their wheel is rip it down and use it as a second litter box. They even take the time to move litter into it before they go. xD
