Hens are hip but rats are readers

Or at least, rats are great reading companions. See? I read, the ratties (these are the girls - LiLi, Lola, and Marley) free-range, and everyone is happy.

Yeah, they don't call me the Crazy Rat Lady of Venice for nothing...


  1. Ewww. Ick. I recoil in horror.

  2. Aren't the librarians supposed to comment, "Oh well, at least she's READING!" ... or was it, "Those better not be library books"?

    Hmm, this might be me, too, if my husband weren't so squeamish around pet rats. Check out my brother, though:

    =) Oh, and we are trying to teach my sister's rat terrier to read. But that's a whole other story...

  3. As long as you don't turn out like the Crazy Rat Ladies of the Palisades, I'm sure we'll all be fine. ;)

  4. Oh, that is so funny - see, rats really ARE readers! Or at least, they like to hang around readers...
    And oh yes, I've heard about those ladies. No, we don't let ours breed!

  5. They certainly look cuter than your average street rat!
