Are you a rat? Then chances are you will be very lucky this year according to Madam Auring. Don’t know how dogs like me will fare in the year of the rat but I’m hoping that it will be a lucky year hehe.
Anyways, I was watching TV last night when this activist from PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) appeared on screen and asked people to not trap rats in their homes. I was like, “Huh, lady. Are you crazy? Isn’t your time better spent on saving pandas, baby seals, and the endangered Philippine eagle?”
Rats are rats. Like cockroaches, they are the most likely to survive a nuclear war. They have a better survival mechanism than us human beings. So why is PETA wasting resources protecting these pesky house rats?
Sorry PETA, I like you most of the time but rats are my number one enemy at home. However, maybe I’ll get on board if you’re going to do a campaign to protect ousted House Speaker Joe de Venecia so he can rat out the dirty details he knows about Gloria’s cheating, corruption, and abuse of power.
I do agree though that field rats play an important role in maintaining balance in our ecosystem. So I will most likely ignore a field rat when I see one.
