Another Rat

This family is on rat number 4 in just over a month. First I bought 2 South American rats. I know what you are thinking, but they weren't as exotic as they sound. These rats were deemed unsuitable after 2 weeks of numerous bloody bites and were returned to the pet store. Next came the cutest, most lovable blue rat. He enjoyed spending time on my shoulder and never resisted being handled. Not once did he relieve himself on any of us here in the Scarlett house. Turns out he was not as affectionate as I had thought, he was sickly and died within 3 days. He just didn't have the strength to run when he saw that big human hand coming at him like an eagle's claw.

And that brings us rat number 4. Purchased just yesterday. So far so good.
*Note: The rat pictured is an artist's rendition of a rat, not the actual thing.

4. Let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I procrastinate, hence my previous post. And this one.

3. I could live on cold cereal and beer and garlic.
4. My keyboard is French.
5. I feel weird when my head doesn't hurt.
6. I'm the most unorganized Virgo on Earth.
7. I'm going to treat myself to a tattoo if I can lose 30 pounds. 9 pound down, 21 to go.

I'll be skipping steps 3 and 4, I'm lazy. Cheers!
