A "Rat-ty" Post

Elin and I were walking out from the coffeeshop after taking our lunch when we stumbled upon a cage along the five foot way. (pavement)

I think many ladies will "eeekkkk" when they see this cage right in the middle of the pavement. Inside the rusty old cage, laid a pitiful big fat rat with a long tail. Seeing the size of this rat, it must have been eating a lot in someone's house and thus, now the "death sentence" ....

I went nearer to take a snapshot of the poor rat...

I do not really fear rats...
maybe because I am "rat" too?
Chinese beliefs... each year represent an animal
and it is a 12 year cycle...
So... anyone born under the year of the rat?

(sorry, hope no one is eating at this moment)
