I have things to blog about - but not the energy.

Ah, but I have accumulated trivia through the years!

Here's some....

A rat can last longer without water than a camel.

My daughter had two rats when she was a child.
The first was named Ashley.
The second was named Cleo.

My son had two rats also.
I think one was named Pete
and one was Whitey.

Before Will had any rat he had a Savannah Monitor - that he named Pete.
Here is a picture of a Savannah Monitor...
Pete went missing the very first day... leaving an empty leash on our back porch.  He was supposed to have grown to 9 feet. He was like 6 inches when we got him... so he may be out there HUGE.  (I'm thinking he's not out there.)

Here's some more trivia...
