Oops de Booboo
Ahem. Uh, hi.
I'm, um... I'm Oops de Booboo. It's, um, kind of a redundant name, but, um, it's mine. Yeah. Mom named me Oops. Dad named me Booboo. See, I'm a bit, um, shy. But that doesn't mean I can't be the dominant rat, right? Well, I think I should be. When I was by myself I was dominant and I did really good too! This cheesy poof attacked me once and I slaughtered it! It never tripped me again!
Mom thinks I need friends of my own species. I don't see what the big to-do is. She's a good friend! She's glued me back together, put a splint on my foot, and gives me oodles of scratches. I think that's good enough, but she doesn't.
I hate to admit this, but I actually like where I'm at now. The last guys Mom put me with were just too big! Any time I'd open my mouth wide, separate my teeth, and squeal like a baby (Mom's words, not mine) they'd beat me up. I mean, sure, I started it when I nipped their legs and noses, but they shoulda just known that I was supposed to be Alpha, right?
These new guys are pretty cool. I pouted and squealed and nipped, but Guffy didn't care. He just shrugged his big furry shoulders and walked away. Mom said all he wanted to do was sniff my butt. She was right. I don't have to nip and run anymore.
Earl's cool too. Mom actually caught us napping together in our wheel. I didn't want to share at first, and I didn't want Earl to mount me, but we reached an agreement and I let Earl pin me down and power-groom me in exchange for Earl leaving my tush alone.
Then there's Agent Squeaky. His real name is Agent Steele because he prowls around like a true detective. He's such a baby! He opens his mouth real wide when any-rat comes near him and squeals at the top of his lungs! What a scaredy-rat! He wants to be Alpha too but there's no way that will ever happen.
Zapp's the coolest! He wants to be just like me when he grows up! He follows me around everywhere and mimics all of my behaviors! He's the greatest! He has a little friend named Roger. Roger is a bit hyper when he's not dozing, but he makes a nice pillow.
There's these two funny guys, Uncle Fester and Gunther. I like to lick them because I don't get any hairballs from them. They're bodies are soooo warm. I like to snuggle with them too.
Anyway, that's all. I think I'm breaking out of my shell, at least that's what Mom says. I hope it's a peanut butter shell. That's my favorite!
