Hi Yen,
       I just can't seem to get your pet out of my mind.  I just read
your original post which says it might have come from South America.  If
so, it might be a well-fed specimen of Marmosa murina.  If it is a
female and lacks a pouch, it is probably a Marmosa.  They are also
larger than the burramyids that were discussed.  From the photograph, I
can't tell how long this pet is.
