Winky is my little house elf. I have always wanted a hairless rat but never really found breeders close by and gave up on the idea. However, one day I was walking around the swap meet and found this guy who had a large snake that people could take pictures with. What interested me was a sign saying "rats for sale", but with no cages in sight, I asked about it. Sure enough, there were tins of rats, holding atleast 30 in a tin, and some newborn babies as well, intended to be snake food. It was a sad sight and I really didn't have room for any more rats at the time, but I knew I should save atleast one, and then I saw her. Winky was older than the others, but she was a hairless and I loved her. I took her to the vet and sure enough she had worms that I treated her from and took her home. She loved all of the soft hammocks and space and I even upgraded my cage after that. She is more of a shy rat, but I love her just the same. My aunt also adopted a few more rats from the same guy to save them from being food.
