This is "Soxy", Lianne's new pet rat. I went out to the market yesterday simply to buy a few bits and bobs and possibly get a nice present for Lianne's birthday (next Sunday) while I was out and ended up coming home with this and a cage!
It was a well thought out present though as Lianne was overjoyed and totally excited to have received her new friend. The whole family have taken to her actually. Me and Steve used to have rats before we had children and so it was a real joy to have another in the house. She's so friendly and totally scrummy (despite her disappearing act for two hours under the sofa last night) Cheeky monkey errr.... I mean Rat!
