Whew, just made it in on Tuesday!
Ratty is one of my favorite toys. Unlike Angel Fin, I carry my Ratty around proudly. It makes my parents smile.
When Mom first brought Ratty home he was bigger than I was. So carrying him around wasn't easy, but I managed. I tried to drag him by the tail, but then I'd have to try to straddle him while I walked. By the neck was better. I'd walk a bit, put him down, get a better grip on his neck, and carry on. I would even scale the cat scratcher, or Mom's office chair with him in my jaws. He is much easier to carry now.
I sometimes carry him into bed now. Ratty and I enjoy a good round of wrestle-mania in bed during the wee hours of the morning. I like to pin him against Mom's back.
