#61, I used to tell people that the bubonic plague was caused by fleas that lived on rats, cats, dogs and humans. I guess rats take all the flak because humans like the other three species.
Then I read an article in the Guardian (if you Google "bubonic plague rats" it is currently the second article) saying that archaeologists have found evidence that the plague spread too fast for it to have been caused by fleas and rats, but more likely by human transmission. Either way, rats are off the hook and I get sick of people spreading such biased, outdated ideas.

OP, I would take it as a compliment; rats are beautiful and I'm sure your cousin thinks the same of you.

Contrary to popular belief, most rats can't actually eat cheese. Like majority of small animals, they develop lactose intolerance as they get older. This isn't relevant for all rats though, one of mine can eat cheese while my other 3 can't.

I agree. When I was a kid, my friend's little brother used to say I looked like a boy. When my friend had a formal birthday party and I was all dressed up, he told me I was a pretty boy. Sometimes kids just say mean things. It's a stage they will hopefully grow out of.
