Stormageddon
This is another pet store rat that I just couldn’t resist, but for different reasons. I was in Petco one day picking up some treats, and I saw a man standing by the rat tank. He had two cardboard boxes filled with mice already, and was looking at the only little rat in the tank. He said to the employee that, “Well, it’s the only one in there anyway so it may as well be my snake’s dinner.” So I walked over and said, “If it’s all the same, I’d like to buy her as a pet.” They both looked at me weird and the man walked away. The employee asked if I was sure, and I said yes, so he put her in the box and sent me to the front. I was really surprised with myself for doing that, because I know snakes need to eat too, but she was just a baby and all on her own, so I figured I’d just take her home and let her meet my girls. After quarantine and introductions, I fell in love with her. She was the only silvery rat I had ever had, aside from the male I gave my ex boyfriend, and she’s been friendly since day one. She’s pretty lazy for a female rat though, and is more content sleeping in my lap than playing with the others, but she loves shoulder-rides and giving kisses, so I’m glad I was able to save her from being a snake’s dinner.
