While you continue to marvel at his cuteness, let me tell you about my little giveaway. I accidentally put two of the same item in my "cart" and paid without noticing until the box arrived at my door. Oops! Well, my dorky mistake is YOUR gain...someone who leaves me some world rat day wishes in my comment box will be chosen at random to win this book and cd of Wild and Domestic Animals clip art. Lots of possibilites await inside...use them as digi stamps, to collage stuff, to make your own embellishments and stickers, or for whatever sort of project you think needs more animals on it. Don't thank me, thank the ratties of the world, for without them, we wouldn't be celebrating their holiday!
Here's one taken with my old pal, Paxil, who I miss very much. She and her best pal, Ether, pictured below, were the rats who got me started in rodent rescue. I'm assaulting her with a tiny pair of antlers in the above photo. She refused to wear them, but managed to make me look plenty silly in the photos, so all's well that ends well. :)
Celebrate the rats you know this week!
