Default 250+ Things Only Rat Owners Will Understand

Or relate to^


1. Buying notebooks, pencils, erasers, books only because there are mice or rats on the cover

2. Eating a salad or fruit cup not at home, and having that thought of "Maybe I should put some in my purse for the rats..."

3. Friends who do everything to avoid the rat topic, once you get started you'll never stop!

4. Going to develop vacation photos, returning with 3 pictures from Sea World and 30 pictures of the rats' outtime

5. You never see anything but absolute cute when people try to find "ugly", black rat pictures to stick on plague powerpoints or poison bottles

6. Screaming "Nooo, you idiot! That's DANGEROUS!" whenever you see that one eccentric character in a movie/show/book who carries a rat around in his/her pocket/bag/drawer. (Just saw this in a movie 30 minutes ago... )



Oooookay that's all I can think of... for now!!!
I know you guys have loads more to add to the list.

7. There is nothing like the sound of raisins rolling around in a wheel.

8. Leaving the cage door open for a minute while you go answer the phone will only happen once.

9. Weekly dates with a sewing machine.

10. It is a joyous moment when your new addition finally pee-streaks you.

11. Why you have so many pictures of rat testicles on your phone or fb page. Along with a long list of people tagged in those pictures.

I do that all the time when I eat out, especially at Japanese restaurants where they serve edamame - I'll roll several pods in a paper napkin and sneak it into my purse/pocket. Drives the hubby nuts!

12. When the last thing you do before leaving the house/apartment is to check to make sure the rat cage is securely shut, and the first thing you do when you get back is to run over and say hi/give treats.

13. When you get excited when you notice different colours of coroplast for the corral in the rat room.

14. When you see a box and you know it's perfect size for a rat castle.

15. When you see a fleece throw and the pattern and colour matches exactly what you have in the cage so it's a must have.

16. When your co-workers frequently approach you with empty tissue boxes or paper towel rolls and ask "Do you think your rats could use this?"

17. When you have two separate debit accounts with your bank - one named "Me", the other named "Vet".

18) When you ask people at work to put boxes, egg cartons and the paper cup trays from tims or mcds aside for you because they make good rat toys and its such a waste to just throw them out!

19) Or instead of doing #18, you raid your work's recycle bins for potential cardboard/paper rat toys.

20) When it seems perfectly natural to have little holes in your bedsheet, blankets, etc.

...and your t-shirts and pants...and having beads or button missing and chewed off...

I LOVE this post!! And I love you guys. It's so good to have people that understand.

#79 - knowing exactly how and where to stroke and using just the right pressure and technique to get the best possible tail waggle

#80 - having the 'Rattie Shuffle' move down-pat when entering the rat room so no-one gets stepped on
