I can’t believe how much Phoenix has mellowed out. If she got loose in my room, I would not get her back for hours. And when I did she would shriek like she was dying. She was practically a wild rat. Now she comes when called, loves cuddles, and just melts in your hands. She’s also probably the biggest rat I’ve ever had, which is great cause she’s easier to hug.

I don’t know what it is with black berkshires, but I seem to always have one?
