This is Gwendolin the rat. Apparently, she will (according to my daughter) be replacing Hammy the Hamster, no I say, no really not. I don't have anything personal against rats, but no, not in my house. I think we just need to take a bit more time to mull over the 'new pet' question. On a positive side I'd like to highlight the artistic merits of the picture, look at the rubber band tail, the use of texture to convey ... um?? noooooooMy own artistic endeavours have ground to a halt and have somehow gone into reverse, I'm awaiting their return and will let you know when there's a bit of action!
