Thankful Thursday: The Running of the Rats

      36 Comments on Thankful Thursday: The Running of the Rats

Brian's Home. Adopt cats, we deserve it!
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!

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’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!

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.

The running of the rats seems appropriate just after the first caucus…

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?

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.

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!
