This is Phil, the big boss of our house, who I saw for the first time today. Since he is the big boss I haven't actually met him. I wouldn't know what to say to him; he is so clever and handsome and worldly wise. Mummy says I am not allowed to put up a photo of him on the wall of our cage, because we girl rats must do more with our lives than think about boy rats. I think this is very hypocrital since all she has done from her teenage months is bring up babies!
It is rumoured that Phil has never had a days illness in his life, not even a sneeze, and that he travelled to Japan, across the Pacific, stowed away on a ship. And he sleeps only one hour a day. He's a great rat.
