This happened about 2 years ago at my old job sight, I love peanuts so always having a few in my pocket, I used to feed the squirrels at work walking
from building to building.well one day as I'm walking back to my shop I see a squirrel,
so I threw a peanut and as the squirrel ran to grab it, a rat popped its head up from a hole looking curious. That very second, Instantly I felt
disgusted with this dirty rat. This disgusting Nyc rat with open sores just looking at me and the squirrel... When I tell you a second later I felt so
bad for this poor Rat, Man I felt a flush of guilt because of how I saw and thought of this Rat.... This is still a life...not as pretty as a squirrel
(still rat with a pretty tail lol) but it still was no different in that it had the same needs. I threw 2 peanuts to that rat and It kinda changed my
Thank you all for your replies, I also asked myself was I really that conditioned to just see this Rat as negative? If I saw that in a negative view
I also love walnuts. I had a squirrel chase me down a block because I fed him a quenepa (sweet lil fruit).
He loved them so much he sat on a bench next to me taking them from my hand. people thought he was my pet!
