One time, when Mom cheated...

Back in January, Mom had to go away for a few days to get the last of her disseratation research done. Fortunately, the University she had to go to was near to her Aunt's house, so she got to spend some good time catching up with and being spoiled by her Aunt and Uncle. She missed us while she was gone of course, and we assumed she would just spend days in misery until she could see us again. We were wrong. While she was there, she fell in love with her Aunt's rats! She said it helped to make it easier because she still came home to four-legged furry creatures everyday, and they were fun to play with too! We won't be getting any rats here anytime soon, but I wanted to post this for the Poi Rats who are concerned about their upcoming move. I don't know what this really has to do with the Poi-land rodentia moving across an ocean, but it made us think of the time Mom fell in love with rats. Enjoy!

I have to rat sisters. I know, I'm always asked how is it that I not eat them. Well, they're very nice and I think of them as small cats. These are very nice pics.

Those ratties are cute. I heard they are very smart too. I don't think it's cheating because they are not cats.

PS we can't wait until the bad news goes away and we are all happy again. it is awful so many of our friends are sick and going to the bridge. we're purring and praying for them all.
