Meg's a total sweetheart, and loves lots of attention. She helps me clean out the cage every week by inspecting everything as I do it. She's a climb up your leg to sit on your head type of rat. She's quite a small girl, much smaller than her sister, Rosie - probably because she's always on the go. As she's aging she's getting very small and frail, but she keeps on keeping on.
