Rats, It’s Monday!

Ah, another start to the work week. Let’s brighten that trudge into the office with Maxwell!

“I sent a few pics of Maxwell (Department Head Rat Mascot who lives in the Psychology Department at Oral Roberts University) last year, so I thought I would send these- one of them may make a cute “Nosevember” photo. Hope you enjoy! -Sandy T.

Rats, It’s Monday: Interview With The Rat

cuteoberload2oscarwinHopefully 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.

And now it’s Life In The Fast Lane- Facebook, Twitter, Cute Overload. We saw a rumor on Twitter that you met Beyoncé. True?
Um, no. I did win an Oscar® last year and met lots of famouse peoples, but Beyoncé was not dere.

We see you aren’t shy about, well, stuffing your face. Favorite snack is…..?

Any final words for your C.O. fans?
Important bizness adbice….it’s berry important to remember to balance your diribitibs and your interest ratios wiffout forgetting to dibest your forfeitures wiff taxashuns. Split your stocks and inbest your monies wiff smarts. P.S. I don’t like Mondays.

[*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.

“The earring was attached to the hat. No rat piercings, thankfully. I thought he was pretty adorable, as was the GIANT RUBBER DUCK!”
