Rat Tales #5

Another demonstration of how our three rats have completely different personalities.

Vizzini is the most likely to jump on to my lap. Pretty much every time I see her, she climbs on me.

Inigo will do this sometimes, when she is in the mood and is the most likely to stay put once there.

Fezzik only rarely climbs on me, and then she is usually looking for NEST or FOOD.

So I figure, once a pet is sitting on you of their own free will, that actually petting them isn't out of the question.

This is how it goes:

Vizzini tolerates your touch.

Touch changed angle. Now she stab.

Inigo likes this.

Inigo has melted.
(She will also start licking you.)

Fezzik, ironically the cuddliest of the rats, does not give consent for cuddles.

Musical Monday #262

And now for a number from probably the best movie musical of all time. (This scene works better in context as part of Don Lockwood's juxtaposed story of his origins, where he narrates to his fans a suave and successful career whereas we get to see the crappy truth.)

Fit As A Fiddle (And Ready For Love) from Singin’ In The Rain
Performed by Gene Kelly and Donald O'Connor
Written by Arthur Freed, Al Hoffman and Al Goodhart
