I have a new friend!
Or I will have a new friend once his quarantine period is over, I think that is next week. They were calling him BamBam at the store but Melly and Coral didn’t like that. Coral came up with the name Bakersfield, apparently out of thin air and Melly liked it that so now that is his new name!
Bakersfield is a two-year-old male rat who was abandoned by his owner. Melly asked why his owners gave him up and the guy said, “Maybe they had to move or something.” So Melly said, “Did they take their kids?” The PetCo guy said he didn’t know if they took their kids but I bet they did. And they just left little Bakersfield at the store without even telling them what his name was.
I can sympathize with Bake’s story, the same thing basically happened to me. So far, I’m glad Melly took me in and I think Bakersfield will be glad too, once he settles into our house. Melly says he can ride on my back maybe. You can see he already knows how to ride on people’s shoulders.
Well, I guess that’s all I have to say right now because we don’t really know him yet. He does have a cute nose, which should help him fit in here. Maple, Oakley and I all have adorable noses and Coral’s nose isn’t too bad either. I’m not going to mention Melly’s nose except to say there is a reason I sometimes call her Smelly. I’m just saying, I bet she has a great sense of smell with that nose of hers, if you know what I mean.
