Effie here. Mom and dad were worried about me because I was so sad when Millie went to get her wings. Rats are very friendly and like to cuddle a lot, you see, and we get lonely very quickly. So mom and dad rushed out and went all the way to Yeovil to adopt a sister for me. Her name is Octavia and she is very daft. She has a big brown mark on her nose, which I think she got from dunking it in chocolate pudding. I have tried licking it off, but it won't budge.
We have a lot in common, including an uncommon interest in baskets. And she is a very good climber. She loves nibbles as much as me... and she likes to lick my noggin. I think Millie would approve of her, so I am going to keep her.
