A cool thing is that the article notes that locals have come to like having a giant rat in their neighborhood: “People have developed a lot of affection for the rat,” Parker said. “I’ve seen parents bring their children by and lift them up so they can shake his hands. There were even carolers singing around him at Christmas.”
I was asked to host the rodent panel at FC (Less than two weeks away! Yipe!). Last year, harlequeen was kind enough to assist and provide the squirrel point of view. I hope to see him again as well as all my rodent and rodent-friendly friends!
