My new baby! ButterScotch! (Pics)

Alright, well the main story is on myother thread about a rat being mistreated by a classmate of mine.
The bottom line is that a boy in my class brought a rat to school for fun because he breeds feeder rats and has around 60 in a glass tank with news paper and fed them on scraps.
He was planning on feeding this little cream rat wheatpix (a type of cereal) for 3 weeks solid and giving her cucumber as a small souce of water, then syringing her with water so that the wheatpix would swell and her stomache would explode. I took the rat out of his hands and she is an ABSOLUTE angel!
I've named her ButterScotch and she has gained weight even thought i've had her for such a small amount of time. She's fitted in like a glove with my other 2 girls, Eclipse and Sugar (:
