Nibblet the Rat Takes on Extreme Sports

I'm sure most of you are aware of the fact that I have a pet rat - Nibblet. If you didn't know, now you do! :) Some people, I know, just can't grasp the idea of keeping a rat as a pet but domestic rats are actually highly intelligent and clean animals. In fact, I think Nibblet stays cleaner than my dog. Rats are so intelligent that they can be taught to do tricks, just like a dog. They are easily clicker trained.

Nibblet doesn't really know any tricks, but that's simply because I haven't taught her any. She will come when I call her, however. She also learned how to jump onto my bed the other night. It's a pretty far jump that I've never seen her do, so I thought I'd record it and share it with everyone. (Nibblet's also been complaining that she hasn't appeared on the blog in awhile...)


Nibblet says she may take up extreme sports next. I think a skateboarding rat would be pretty awesome! 


Plus, she's already an expert with helmet safety! ;)
