|POEM OF RATS
Down the coast, where the moon's called "La Luna",
And sweet breezes breed nights of romance,
In the rust bucket port of Fortuna
Live some rats with a passion for dance.........
On a barge filled with garbage they gather,
As day's last rosy rays fade to night,
And they dance, for there's nothing they'd rather
Than to boogie 'til dawn's first light............
When the rats of Fortuna go dancing,
And they do - any night there's a moon,
They begin with a kind of a trance thing,
Twirling 'round on their toes 'til they swoon....
Then it's samba and frug, and fandango!
Or a tango, quadrille or cavort.
With a snack break of fish head con mango,
Rats refuel for more foot stomping sport....
As they spin in a wild tarantella,
Or glide 'round in a dizzying umbrella;
How they sigh when the dance music halts....
Whisker deep in the papers and peelings,
Carefree rats rediscover their joy.
Celebration surenders to feelings;
Paradise for rat girl and rat boy......
To the rats, dancing means self forgetting,
Never letting mere crap color life.
To get loose for an hour, and cease sweating
One's interminable ration of strife......
When the world sends you questions for answers,
And the other is crowding your space,
May you dream of Fortuna's rat dancers,
And wake up with a smile on your face......
|Rats Are Blind!
You think from all the
cartoons, that they can see that trap?? Nope!
They smell the cheese, and feel the area, they may smell YOU, but they don't see the trap!
|Rats, like people, will over eat! They love people food, they can eat most anything. Rats are unable to vomit nor are they able to burp. So, what goes in... must go ALL the way through. Some rat poisons are successful due to this fact. By the time a rat has realized her mistake, she is unable to get rid of the poisoned food. Because a rat has no GAG reflex, choking is a serious problem. Avoid giving rats sticky foods such as: taffy, peanut butter, caramels, rolled fruit snacks, jelly beans. If you see your rat choking, there is little you can do to help. Fortunately, rats usually manage to unstick the item.|
|Rats eyesight is about a 1 on a scale of 1-10. They can detecting motion and that is about it.|
|Rats make great pets. You have to understand, if you give a kid a rat for a pet...remember, they only live about 2 years or so.|
