Pet rat!

I have heard of different pets, but to have rat as a pet was beyond my imagination. I didn’t have to go far , for my neighbour got white rat as their pet.

All children come over to take a look at the rat in their cage, and I also had a look at it. It was as irritating as the other rats that are found. I am still amazed at how they manage and I was watching the kid’s excitement when he was narrating as to how he and his sister take turns to feed it.

I was just wondering, if they take the rat out of the cage, would it show its loyalty like other animals do or would it bite of their clothes and papers! If the door were left open, would it run out? By any chance at that moment, if my door were open, would it come to my house? How should I react: the same way as I would have had it been any rat or should I call my neighbours?
With all these fears, I rest………….

there has been this rodent troubling me for a while now. thing is, when i look at the tiny fellow (sundeli, in tamil) i just don't feel like killing him.

so if he enters home, i spend about half an hour chasing him all over the place before he finally throws an act of benevolence and gets out of the house, even if temporarily :)
