Who say's only humans can laugh when tickled, it seems that rats also laugh when tickled.  http://www.huffingto..._n_1627632.html

Awe that is way too cute - I'm starting to understand why some people think rats make good pets, the two in the video were adorable.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

I want one!

The internet is a series of tubes, and those tubes are full of cats.

Cute rats! :lol:

I just loved it when they chased the researcher's hand around the cage. Seems like everything responds to being treated nicely, rats being no exception.

Happy I read this.  I knew it was laughter I hear coming from the drains.  Dirty rats they may be but at least they can laugh, unlike some people I know.

(Downside is I'll never be able to shoot a rat again without feeling like a murderer)

They are as loyal and loving as a dog. I've never had them, but I know people who have. They love human interaction.

Forgot to say that those rats in the video don't look much like the rats we have around here.  Those brown, manky lookin' critters.

Still.. I won't hold it against them.  No more killing rats.

Can't be killing laughter, no siree!

Different type of rats I think. The ones in the video are the kind you have as pets. Wouldn't risk trying to tickle your local city/sewer rat if i was you. lol

Ohh.  Warning duly noted, Coffey. Thank you!

My rat-tickling days are on hold until I find a sexy one.

That was actually pretty cool! It's always nice to see any kind of species being happy in their own untainted ways. :yes:

A window within the soul to see, light and magick I send with thee.
Be strong, be brave, make the right choice, though darkness shouts with a terrible voice.
Know that I'm watching from above and that always, always, the answer is love.
