"We went to the pet store a few weeks ago, on January 7, 2005, we purchased a lovely little boy rat. After doing some research on the net I noticed that pictures of boy rats didn't quite look like my rat. We figured out that he was a she and we renamed her Molly. After about a week we noticed that Molly was getting pudgy and was awfully hungry."
Shortly after that there were eleven new things to notice, which is... a heap o' rats. A dozen rats. Whoa. Anyway, Rayne didn't have to keep the dozen rats, but she and her daughters were happy to keep two and the mother. Mr. Rayne is Coming Around to a Rat-Loving Perspective. It's true of many things including rats: they grow on you. However, careful attention to proper hygiene can reduce the number that grow on you by 75%.
