Friday Haiku



I'd like you to meet
Gustave. Indeed, he's a rat.
Yet, a real joy. Hmmmm...

you may screech, "a rat!!!!???"
And normally I'd screech too.
But he's a sweetie.

We met him today
Riley and I. My friend, "T"
had adopted him.

She was still mourning
her first rat she named, "Zelda",
who passed a year now.

Gotta love Gussie.
My goodness he makes me think
I could love one too.

My apologies -
the photos were taken with
my cheapie cell phone.

He's a cute little guy.

I babysat two rats for a year, and I have to say that they made great pets. Not that my husband would go for it or anything, but great pets nonetheless.

Nice to meet you too, Gustave. What a distinguished name you have.

Have a good weekend!

He looks much more distinguished than the little gray mice who sneak into my house on an annual basis. I might could love him. Might.
