That's a rat, not a mouse. Plus, he's boney as a rail, they need to alter his deprivation schedule.

Mustard, pickles, and ham? Aren't you gaining water weight from all the salt?

The ham redeems it.

You sure? Looks like a rat to me. I've been around both a bit.

But, if he follows your lead, he wouldn't have a problem...

It's the size of the ears and eyes.

Iím pretty sure thatís a rat, but itís impossible to say for sure except for the individual who actually procured that critter for the ad.

genejockey 10-21-21 11:43 AM

It's also knowing the likely size of the tubes in that rack.

BillyD 10-21-21 11:44 AM

A juvy rat looks just like a mouse, you can’t tell by size.

Those tubes look like 12x75mm tubes, which is what goes in a rack like that. Mice are 50-100mm long, so that's the right proportion relative to the tubes, whereas rats are 200-400mm and would totally dwarf the tubes.

Did the final workout of Zwift Academy last night. 3 repeats of 400W for 30", 135W for 1', 230W for 4' and 250W for 3', with 5' at 135W in between. The first one was, if not easy, definitely doable. I looked forward to seeing the gate, but I could have kept on at 250 a while longer.

Second set was more of a chore.

Third set, I made it through, but felt AWFUL for the first 30 seconds after the end, which is kinda the point, I guess.

Looks like there will be some rain/occasional showers most days of my upcoming trip. :( I am going anyway.

I used to have a pet rat. It was white. It developed mammary tumors. My mom had it euthanized while I was touring Europe after my sophomore year of college.

I had a black and white one when I was about 9-10. Cool little guy. It had tumor issues, too. :(

Sounds more like one of them track bike sizes, for when 100mm is just too wide.

When I was too young to remember directly (like 3 or 4) one of my older siblings brought home a pair of hooded rats from school one summer - George and Georgette. G&G did what rats do, and soon there were more, so each of the kids got one. I apparently had one, but I have no memory of it. I don't know how long this lasted, but I suspect all the rats one day were sent to a farm upstate, where they could run and run, as the saying goes.

I had guinea pigs when I was younger. They're very cute, friendly, cuddly, and will actually greet you with what we used to call "greeching". They live a long time, it turns out, so we found a family with younger kids to take on my group of 6 when I headed off to college.

IIRC, it's a common problem with rats.

My girl was sweet. I got her from a friend who was quitting school and could not bring her home. She lived on the bookshelves in my dorm room. I built a ramp so she had a split-level pad. Made her a shoebox house for her to hide in and gave her an old sneaker to gnaw on. I liked how you could feed her anything. Even pizza. I would sneak vegetables out of the cafeteria to make sure she got her share of healthy food.

I had a hamster once.
