- rat #21 caught this morning

- this one was young, alomst looked like a mouse

- I wonder if this means the adult rats have all perished.. with child left to hunt on it's own?

- stunned by trap, had to be incinerated for mercy purposes

- new NGK blues will arrive tuesday, I am excited about the power finally returning in Camry

A shop down the street I'm friends with used to have a pet rat. Former lab rat, one of their neighbor's kid had a pet snake and was feeding them to it. It escaped and took up residence in my buddy's shop, and his life partner tamed it. Very smart, it learned all sorts of tricks and would respond to weird conversational stimuli. Unfortunately it died of a brain tumor, poor thing.

Now they have three feral cats, half-tame, and several species of birds.

I'm sure they make great pets when trained not chew NGK blues and perish in airboxes. Mah life-partner wants me to vaccinate our kitten so she can stress out the rats... I mean they can't be unlimited...can they?

- are you suggesting I feed the rat to the Camry in a sort of blood-pennance?
- I don't know how long it would take to dissolve in the tank
- but the fats (oils) of the rat do contain BTUs, however I do not know how much rat-oil equates to say a teaspoon of petrol..
