Belle (March 7, 2011 - November 4, 2013)

Recently, we said goodbye to our rat, Belle.  She was one of our explorers and even in her old age, she loved to climb around and jump down from the table.  In her last days, we often found her in the rat hamper, wrapped up in the blanket.  She was always on the go, loved to build nests, and stash food.  She was a lot like Mishka (her mother) in looks and personality.  Some of Belle's nicknames were Belly, Belle Bottoms, and Bella-boo.  Since she was usually on the move, we don't have a ton of pictures of her.  Plus, it was often hard to tell the black rats apart from a distance, but here are a few good pics of Belle.
