I like rats. Lots of people don’t like rats. I think they’re adorable, with their little ratty faces and tails. When I worked for Pets At Home we had some lovely rats. They would happily sit on your shoulder while you wandered around the shop, and baby rats are so cute and funny. My dad doesn’t like rats. He gets freaked out by their tails. I like their tails, they curl around things so daintily!
The girls in work don’t like rats. Or mice. Or most other rodents. Probably because they’ve become convinced that one is living in the kitchen. I’m not 100% convinced that there is a beast because there are no poos and it doesn’t smell, and mice are smelly beasts that wee and poo everywhere. Just as well we’re moving to a different office at the end of the month, just a different kind of rat to deal with there.
