The Great Rat Detectives!
Each week, we team up with our friends at The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Texas (SPCA of Texas) to showcase a different animal that's in need of a loving home. We'll check out the animal, learn about its personality, do a short “interview,” take some cute pictures and report back to you on our findings. If any of the animals shown are to your liking, remember: They need loving homes free from abuse. If that sounds like your home, help them out.
This week, we met three lovable rats: Taz, Rocco, and Piggy. All three are currently up for adoption at the SPCA of Texas (2400 Lone Star Drive; 214-742-7722).
Wow, I get three interviewees today!
Piggy: You're probably about to have less than that on your hands. Everyone, I'd like to announce something: There is a murderer amongst us.
Taz: Are you sure Detective Piggy?
“Detective” Piggy? And a murderer?!
Piggy: Yes. I followed a trail of red paw prints to this exact place. I am certain that one of us here is the murderer.
Taz: We have to find them out immediately, then!
Where's the body?
Rocco: Yeah, hold on. Who got murdered?
Taz: I'm confused.
Piggy: I'm not actually certain who the person killed is, actually.
You have no proof? Aside from those paw tracks?
Someone probably just stepped in something red and tracked it in. You're acting like you're in the movie The Great Mouse Detective or something.
Piggy: I just saw that movie for the first time recently! That's why I decided to become a detective!
Taz: I love that movie, too!
Rocco: I think one of my cousins was in that movie, actually.
Guys, that movie is about mice. You guys are rats.
Rocco: Mice are basically rats, right?
Taz: Yeah, we're basically mice.
I'm pretty sure that's not how it works. Anyway, let's finish this interview. Could you guys give me a couple of words to describe yourselves?
Rocco: We're rats!
Piggy: We like cheese!
Taz: Actually, I'm lactose intolerant.
