Hard-Boiled Rats

Don’t worry, it’s not one of Violet Crepuscular’s recipes. It’s just somebody’s three pet rats trying to tackle a hard-boiled egg. Note how they frequently appeal to the stupid human with the camera, who finally gets the idea and helps them.

We’ve had pet rats, and they make wonderful pets. Quite affectionate, and very, very smart! Although our two girl rats were siblings, so every time you turned out the light for bedtime, they would fight: thump-thumpety-thump-SQUEEEEEEEK!!! Then you put the light back on and they’re just standing around looking innocent.

Just like our freakin’ cats.
