World Rat Day

by Diana Hockley


The little beady-eyed creep irritated the hell out of me. If he hadn’t been one heck of a technician, I would have had him transferred to another department. Much as I liked to hear the figures on the monitors squeal, prolonged listening got old pretty quickly.

KRL wants to spread the word about what awesome pets rats are, and also to help those who are rescuing them, so we interview rat rescues across the country. This week we are interviewing the owner of Rizzo Rat Rescue in Southern California, Lillian. In honor of World Rat Day on April 4 we actually have 3 rat related articles in this issue!

KRL enjoys featuring the many rat rescues around the country because we know how wonderful pet rats are and want to help spread the word about those who help them. We especially wanted to feature one this week in honor of World Rat Day on April 5! This week we are chatting with Brittaney Smallwood of East Tennessee Give A Heart Rat Rescue.

In honor of World Rat Day we thought it would be fun to publish this rat poem by Seattle writer Patti Yeager. The art work is hers as well.

The Travelin’ Rat is a unique organization: our mission is to help animal rescues, especially those that take in rats, wherever we can and in whatever way we can. This is generally done through fundraising, but we also help rescues by sitting with them at events, helping with transports, and spreading the word when rescues need help. We are very often confused with a rescue; though we help them and work closely with them, we do not rescue animals ourselves.

Wellington Fie
was a young private eye,
And he wanted a case to pursue.
So he asked both his mom
and his big brother Tom
If they knew of a mystery or two.
