After seeing our beautiful bond, the teacher gave Tabitha to me.
Tabitha was my pet for two and a half years and was the sweetest, gentlest little rat I’ve ever seen, and I still miss her terribly.
Her favorite place to be was on my shoulders, surveying the room with her wise eyes. She also loved human food and had a love affair with Pirogues, which always makes me laugh to think about.
She was such a smart little thing.
When she was on my shoulders, she had a way of letting me know when she had to go to the bathroom.
She would carefully take hold of my ear and gently tug until I placed her back in her cage where she would do her business, crawl back up on my shoulder,
were off again!
