Hey, y’all me t this dude last Friday when he was hanging out with Sister Gracie. This is Roddie and he is our entry in this years Running of the Rats. No, this has nothing to do with the U.S. Elections, promise. Anyways, the rats will be turned loose in the streets and many humans will try to out run them. Purrsonally, I know how peeps act around rodents so there might be a good chance that they can really out run them. If they don’t then they will be trampled, you know, sort of like what happened to Grandma with the reindeer.
Oh wait, stop the presses. My Sisters are tellimg me there is no Running of the Rats, it’s Running of the Bulls. Well, that’s a bunch of bull. Who is the lucky one that gets to tell Roddie? He has been training for weeks.
Seriously though, I’m thankful to have so many fun toys and I’m really thankful that Sister Gracie didn’t mind that I borrowed her rat. Those are really great things. I still think Running of the Rats is a better idea. What are you thankful for today?
Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
I think Running of the Rats would be much more fun!
I agree with you that running after rats sounds way more fun than bulls !
Me is thankful for that the sun is shining from a clearblue sky today 🙂
We think that the Running of the Rats sounds like a lot more fun than anything with bulls. So there!
We think the running of the rats is a great idea. We would all sure join in. Just run them right out of town. That is one huge rat you have there Brian. You all have a good day.
I think you kitties can hold your own running of the rats. Sounds like a fun game.
Running of the rats sounds more fun. Have a great day.
I’d be less afraid of bulls than rats LOL – regardless, that’s one cute cat and rat pic.
Maybe you need to grab the bull by the horns and get a race for rats going.
MOL – you tricked me Brian! I had not heard of that before, but no wonder. =P I did read about some other yucky tradition (I think also in Spain) having to do with rats. It did not end well for the poor rats though. Anyways – your friend is super cute!
Oh how bad that the rats were replaced by bulls… I thought my BFF Rizzo could start there LOL… but maybe he can get a race with your Roddie?
The Running of the Rats would probably be a lot less dangerous than the bulls. Cute photo!
Mebbe we can start organizing a Running of Rats to follow the kitten bowl on Sunday?
Hi Brian! There is a “Run for the Rodents” in Louisville, KY as part of the Kentucky Derby Festival. It is a fund raiser for on of the local universities. Here is a link to a story that is from 2010. https://www.wdrb.com/story/12318935/run-for-the-rodents-at-spalding-downs Sorry it’s so old. However, the race still goes on every year! The rats get Fruit Loops cereal at the end of the race.
Your table for 7 will be ready at 1000 in the morning. Tunnel or Ess? I will have mine on the “on ” position. As for the running of the rats Brian, that was a good one! really it was! xoxo

Our kitty version definitely sounds like more fun, and a lot safer, at least for us kitties!
The running of the rats seems appropriate just after the first caucus…
have a wonderful Thursday.

Hehe – loved the running of the rats idea!
That sounds like a lot of fun ! Purrs
Is Roddy Ray anything like Rowdy Rat? Autumn had one of those but you look far cuter with Roddy.
Oops, that should be Roddy RAT. TW should be fired for that typo.
I was born in a barn full of young bulls, so running with the rats sounds much better to me.
If there wasn’t a running of the rats before, you can start one now!
If Roddie has been training for the Running of the Rats, there should be a Running of the Rats. Perhaps you and your sisters could join him so he doesn’t have to run alone?
OMC you made me laugh!!! “nothing to do with the election” xoxo
I think the running of the rats is better than running of the bulls 🙂 Although, I don’t want to be around when it happens.
We prefer the Running of the Rats. 🙂
Well, we sure arent gonna run around with bulls! They are clumsy but heavy. But we arent runnin around with RATS either. We want to keep our dignity…
We’d rather see the running of the rats!
That’s a big rat toy you all have.
I used to watch the Running of the Rodents at my house. My hamster siblings run around their cage, in their wheel, and in their play area. I was never allowed to run with them.
Running of the rats definitely sounds like more fun than Running of the Bulls. We’re pretty sure we could outrun the rats, especially if they stop for pizza. MOL! XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
Personally, I would much rather see the running of the rats. The running of the bulls seems terribly cruel and inhumane, to me. MOUSES!
