    hahahaha! This is my little sister (and the BEST picture ever). 100% seroius. I love all the comments!

    I loooooove the background for some reason. Everything is better with lazers.

    But it’s a little weird with a toddler wearing a tshirt with “Roxanne” written on it.

      This is my little sister, and our dear Templeton, RIP. Roxanne is my sister’s name, my mom named her after that catchy Sting song without realizing what the song was really about. Sidenote: Roxanne is 20 years old now and still loves rats.

    Aww I thought it was cute! Maybe I’m just biased, though…when I was younger I had a beloved rat as a pet. And yes, I have a picture rather similar to this one.

    LOL! took me a minute to figure it out, so I swiveled the computer to my DH and he immediately goes, “oh, there’s a rat on her.” Good eyes! I just didn’t have my contacts in.

    LOL, I didn’t even see the rat at first. The picture was a little hazy – I saw it as part of her hairdo – I thought “Why is this in the pet area?” OHPP! Nope! There he is. Camoflauged as her hair!

    I thought this picture was just ADORABLE!

      Me, too!

      The rat looks like he’s freaking out, probably because of the bright photo studio lights and all the strange people around. He must really be attached to, and trust, little Roxanne or he’d be off like a shot to find a good hiding place.

    Ben, the two of us need look no more
    We both found what we were looking for

    “Ben, the two of us need look no more
    We both found what we were looking for
    With a friend to call my own
    I’ll never be alone
    And you my friend will see
    You’ve got a friend in me”

    I really, really, really want a personalized pelican shirt.

  11. Carrie says:

    haha… I thought that was her hair.

  12. Marie says:

    That poor child looks like she’s sporting a comb-over.

  13. gottago says:

    Hahaha! It took me ages to notice that thing was there! It really does blend in well!

    • Monika says:

      Yeah, I didn’t see it either at first. And then when I did see it, I was like WT*? There’s a rat on her shoulder! And then I realized it was supposed to be there. LOL!

    Is that bandage on her hand from rabies shots?

    • senora_jennifer says:

      Could it have been the rat’s attempt to get out of taking the picture? Once Templeton realized he was going to be in the photo, he bit her and a long and tiresome struggle ensued to stay out of the picture, which could also explain why the little girl looks like she’s been playing for a while before taking the picture.

    “Roxanne . . . you don’t have to wear that rat tonight.”
