Rat Business

Uploaded: August 01, 2010

Sitting on the deck in evenings tells me there is a rat living in a bush. He likes to come out and get bird seed with the birds. As long has he causes no problems, and doesn't chase me around, I guess he can stay for awhile.
I do not like mice or rats, they freak me out. I would take a spider, skunk, or the deer eating my plants any day. Maybe I will come up with a name for him.

Long story short I had a mouse go up my leg and to my shoulder while traveling in a British Landrover with husband and two kids. This did it for me! Ekkk. However I will try to accept the "visitor" only because he is sorta cute. #8799277

I love this photo. Had to add as a favorite. I just love afternoons when such joys appear. I had a mole that would come out and eat our bird seed each evening. Love it. Great clear shot. dp #8803123
