“I am still just a rat in a cage…”

He’s nocturnal. So when I’m up in the middle of the night, because of work or insomnia, not only is he awake, but he appears to be happy to see me. He scurries to the side of the cage and looks at me with his standard rodent expression, although I think there is also a hint of excitement, and I imagine if he could talk, he would say, “Lady! You’re up! Finally, someone else is up! What’s with all the rest of those freaks sleeping all night?!” Then he insists on coming out to play. Far be it of me to argue with a rat this adorable, so I usually try to fish him out for a couple minutes.

Forgive my arrogance, but if he had a blog, I’m confident that he would have a category called “the lady” and there would be posts about how I so totally rock.
