All About Badger
How did you two meet?
Well, I went to Petco to pick up some supplies and I did my round of going by the rat cages to check them out and I saw the lone rat. I asked to play with her for a bit. I told myself I shouldn’t get another ratty. I felt bad for leaving her, and talked about her for a few days after. Finally, I decided to go back and see if she was still there. She was! So I got her.
So what do you and Badger do together?
I take her out to the park and we play hide and seek. I even have videos! It’s funny. I let her run on my bed with me and cuddle and sleep on my tummy.
Do you have any funny stories about Badger?
Well, I used to have this cat that loved to walk up to the cages and watch them play. Every once in a while when the kitty was feeling smart, she would put a paw through the bars of the cage and Badger was always there ready to yank fur out of her arm! After a few weeks of this, when I was cage cleaning, I found that she made a nest out of her fur!
Why is Badger so special to you?
Aww. Badger’s my sweetheart, my little rescue. She’s always been there, and she’s the rattie I’ve had the longest. She cheers me up when I’m having a bad day. I can pull her out of the cage and her brux (compared to a cat purring out of content) as loud as possible. Sometimes she bruxes so hard her eyes begin to boggle in and out of their sockets! It lets me know how happy she is and it always makes me giggle and feel much better.
