So, we have a rat! What's wrong with that?

It's winter, food is scarce and more than just the birds come around the backyard for a meal. We once again have noticed a rat making appearances at the back (much like last year... same one?).
We don't mind. He's gentle, just takes what he wants and then goes back to his home.
I've made mention of this to people and more often than not they freak out, telling me I am crazy, that rats are filthy, carry disease and there's never just one around.
Well, he must be an outcast or something. He's the only one. I figure he feasts off the trash at the back of the Chinese Food place (Yummy Yummy) behind my fence other than the seeds here.
I will let him stay. Maybe it's a good thing for a not so social guy like myself? Oh, you want to come over? Well, hope you don't mind a rat running around. Sounds good to me although my tarantula Maude seems to really help with that anyways.

Did you watch "Friends" tonight? Phoebe was taking care of a box of baby rats after she killed their mom by mistake.

Kinda sounds like you :)

If I wasn't working, I might'a... sounds pretty funny though.

You forgot to tell everyone we've named him Gunther. :) oh, and he lives wayyy at the back of the yard.
