That is, without a doubt, the nicest, cleverest rat face I've ever seen... Just by looking at him I can tell that he is not only capable of doing an inventory check - he'll be able to make sure I get all the best bargains and discounts on food supplies, and improve my nutrition too!

Put me down for two Pantry Pals (TM) - I'll give one to my sister for her birthday :)

Welllll ... okay, as rats go, I agree she's kind of cute! But no offense, if I opened my kitchen cabinet and saw that, I'd be frantically thumbing thru the Yellow Pages under "Exterminators"!

I'll take two - one for home and one for work! ...And maybe one more just because. :)

So Sweet!

After getting a hamster I am finding its rodent cousins all the cuter!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 12:48 PM

Ooooh teeny paw! Little beady eyes! And what looks like a teeny rat sized boogie hanging from his nose!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 12:49 PM

Uhm, yeah, I'm with Stooges Woman on this one. While mousie is cute and all, if I found it in my pantry my first thought would involve several expletives. :-O

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 12:52 PM

OMG! Adorable! I want one!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 12:56 PM

Ohh, lookit him - "Don't be scared, I wanna love you!" Poor domestic ratties, being hated on because of wild rat ickyness. (Yes, wild rats are icky and scary.) But lookit him - He's Butterscotch Puddin Colored, ferhevvinsake!!! Love the Ratties!!!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 12:59 PM

Mr. Butterscotch Rat would be quite welcome to keep an inventory as long as he can also order my groceries online. Who needs a smart refrigerator, right?

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:10 PM

So cuddly! What a snookums. I *wish* I could have a pet rat... my DH used his spousal veto power to put the kabosh on that, tho. :(

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:11 PM

--Hey, it's just like "cats in sinks"! "Rats in jars"? Hmmm, maybe not as catchy, considering some of the comments so far... :)

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:14 PM

Ahhh! What a gorgeous little rat! He reminds me of my grey gerbil, the same sort of soft color with huge black eyes. Except this guy's probably the size of two-three gerbils...

Ahhn, those ears!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:14 PM

Oh, he'd do my ordering all right. One box of cereal for me, one for him. One bag of chopped walnuts for me, two for him...

beyond delightful.....pink tail tip alert!!!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:15 PM

tulip ears. awwwwwwww.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:16 PM

I believe the part about Ratbert's interest in your groceries. Maybe not so much in the context of *ordering* them, though, as *eating* them. Fer pete squeaks!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:16 PM

Soooo very cute! Very gentle-looking.

Ya know, we haven't had any 'tocks lately, unless you count half a possum in a toilet bowl. I think we're ready for some plump 'tocks again. I'll go look for pics to submit.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:17 PM

having lived through a pantry invasion (by leetle field mice) I can corroborate the grocery-eating part. did you know that field mice can eat an entire box of GS Thin Mints and leave only a 0.1 inch hole in the corner as evidence?

to this day I puzzle. I mean, they were leetle mousies, but not *that* leetle.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:20 PM

awww, lookit that handsome muzzle.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:27 PM



 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:35 PM

mariser--*especially* after eating a box of GS Thin Mints!

Wish I had a cute little Pantry Pal like that one! clean li'l pointy face... awwwww.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:37 PM

Meg! What a great way to start a weekend. Your caption was a perfect addition to the tiny paw redonkulousness of this pic.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:44 PM

You know, I think the reason I like this so much is that it reminds me of something that would be seen on Sifl and Olly.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:45 PM

The caption that is. I swear this is my last post here.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:47 PM

Pantry Pal: (Cliff Claven voice) Uh-yup... you seem to be ... uhm.. outta granola, here... ma'am. I can get right on the ordering of that for ya.

Homeowner: Wasn't that jar full of granola this morning?

Pantry Pal: Er... well, ma'am... there seems to be some "technical difficulties" with the granola and for your own safety, I found it necessary to eat the whole jar. It was purely for your protection, ma'am. I'm just lookin out for ya.

Homeowner: Riiiiiight.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 01:53 PM

Doesn't it seem he's leaning his head off to the side in a pose, and smirking?

"The student teaches the PROFESSOR"

Uh-huh. Meg, you've got mail.

'Cabinet Kleptos' came to the decision that a major rebranding campaign was in order.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 02:38 PM


:*especially* after eating a box of GS Thin Mints!"

you tell me. that was the first notice that *something* (not an Indian) were rummaging through the cupboards. should have seen me going through (and tossing) box after box after bag after container of rice/flour/cereal/chocolate chips/Fritos/etc. one thing about mousies, they are not picky eaters.

Ooh! Does it come in pink? And if I buy five do I get a special deal? Now I know what to get EVERYONE for Christmas. =)

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 03:07 PM

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 03:20 PM

Yay, pink nosie goodness!

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 04:18 PM

Hahahaha brilliant! I think I had a couple "Pantry Pals" in my first apartment.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 04:33 PM

teeny paw? what about rattie tummy? i loooove rattie tummies...ratties are little pot bellied munchkins. :)

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 06:34 PM

I did, too, Michelle, except that my pals had six legs and long, wavy, creepy antennae...


 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 07:00 PM

No fair, not only do my two rats not make cute faces at me very often, but I know they would never do inventory in the pantry!

R. Moore
 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 07:03 PM

My ratties would not only inventory,
but... they'd take a withdrawl
*hey she doesn't need those cheerios*
AND leave a deposit
*Ahh, left her some more rattie raisins!*

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 07:44 PM

I'm not usually a huge fan of rats. But this little sand-coloured dude is very prosh. Much less objectionable than the albino or greasy grey urban varieties. I guess that makes me a rat racist.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 08:17 PM

If you get think hamsters are adorable, then you've got to give rats a chance. Yeah I know rats rooting around in garbage cans aren't so cute. But give a rat a chance, and look what can happen--you might find another adorable small critter, intelligent, amenable... and cute.

"Uh-oh. Erm ... hi. Fabulous morning, isn't it? It's a good thing I, erm, smelt the cheese spread before you did - it was kinda ruined. So I, um, did away with it. Yeah. Not the kind that goes with *your* cooking, y'know. Erm ... what? Oh, no. Don't look at me like - no, wait - I just *know* you wanna put my head in your mouth-"


 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 11:06 PM

What a sweet-faced rattie! Looks rather gentle and intelligent, too.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 11:22 PM

The son of one of my English professors had a rat who had the run of the house. He lived at the back of Brian's sock drawer...which he entered through a small hole in the back of the dresser. Roy the Rodent mostly collected loose change, cigarette butts, odd bits of stolen jewelry and the occasional candy bar wrapper. He was no good at inventory or ordering, however.

 |  Jul 28, 2006 at 11:48 PM

Hey, Greenighs, lookit this (and everyone else too!)


It's a Whole Gallery of BunnyBuns!! wOOt!!

Equal hiney time - Leonberger puppy butt -


 |  Jul 29, 2006 at 03:37 AM

Did you steal the "grain goodness" part from the label in the back, or is that just a resounding co-inky-dink? ;)
