Rats, It’s Monday: Interview With The Rat

oscarwinHopefully you got a chance to see our YAY It’s Friday Feature with Martin “Marty” Mouse, who is now our Official Favorite Ratso Ever. Over the weekend, we interviewed Marty to find out how he got to be the life of the party.

Marty, thanks for taking time to chat. We know with all your social media accounts, you’re a busy fella. Anyway- you just took the Yogie Bucket Challenge. How’d that go?

I’d often dreamed of it waining yogies, and den one day it did! I scooped up all I could and took dem to my hidey hole.

Ah, I see. OK, moving on- U were rescued from a pet store. What was that like?
I was living at the PetSmart® #1314, and dey were weally nice to me and took good care ob me, but I was dere a long time and I got bored. All my brothers and sisters got adopted. When my mom came by, I saw her and said “Hey! You, take me home!” So she did, and my life is awesome. I hab my berry own office building dat goes wiff me from da office where me and mom work all day, then to the bedroom at night for sleeping. I do internashunal bizness, I have a band called Marty & the Corms, I hab an adbice column called “Deer Marty” and I love snuggles wiff my mom and dad.

[*Note: If you are considering getting a rat, please know that rats are very social animals and only do well in pairs or groups. It is a rare case for a rat to prefer to be a lone rat, like Marty and his hoomins are with him ALL day. So if you are considering a rat adoption, please consider getting two or more and double your fun! We want all rats to be happy and healthy!” -Marty’s Hoomin.

This Is My “No, I DIDN’T Like That” Look, OK?

We think we’re doing them a favor by giving them a bath, with all sorts of warm soapy water, baby talk, (Now who’s the snookums wookums? YOU are), gently toweling them off, and such.

This is a crucial error on our part. The eventual payback is looming, and either we’re gonna get it, or the curtains will.

[Yes, this has the “Impending Doom” tag. -Ed.]
