Niobe is 3

Niobe was born some time in August of 2003. I don't know exactly when, because she came to me secondhand after being purchased from a pet store, so nobody was really keeping track.

She's a very sweet girl. She's the most friendly, human-oriented rat we've ever had, although all the current bunch are trying very hard to get that title. In her youth, she was a champion wheel-runner, and she'll still go for a very slow jog every once in a while. However, these days she mostly enjoys her position as Rat Emeritus by eating and napping (occasionally at the same time, dropping off head down in the food bowl). She is the first rat we've had make it to three, so we made a fuss.
