Meet Lilly. Sweet Lilly joined our family today. She's a Dumbo Rat and oh so adorable... as rats can be. She's so cute and Angelina loves her! For her Birthday we promised her a pet; she's old enough and she's ready. We did our research between a rabbit, hamsters, gerbils, and a rat. We had great success with a rat when Becca wanted a pet and so here we go again. Oh the joys of growing up. Of course as Murphy would have it, we sold our rat cage years back and now need it again . Now if only I could have my pet cow.
