Well....I'm with you...if their tails were bushy...I could go for it. I really like my grand guinea pig.

I never thought I would say horray for the rats


Good for them!

M. K. Clinton

What another fabulous story! That is wonderful that they can be trained to be heroes. ♥

Granny Annie

I shall now love rats....well, appreciate them more...or at least tolerate them...maybe respect them....oh dear. Hooray for the rats!!!


I love win-win situations such as this one. Rats have long been heroes in labs world-wide. I have had many rat friends and they can be quite cuddly even without bushy tails.

Wow, that's pretty cool. Rats creep me out, of course - as they do most folks - but you go, little hard-working rats!


At first I thought the rats detonated the mines and while I'm not a rat lover, I was revving up to go Buffy about it, glad to see that's not the case.

What a great service this guy and his rats are providing.

I've never been creeped out by rats. . . not even when we would get them climbing the walls and crossing the floors in our last house.

But, to borrow a line from Calvin's tiger buddy Hobbes, I'm kinda stupid that way.
