Somehow I guess this salon will be less popular than the cat and dog lounges.

I've only got mice, but they're close enough.

Zap and Rowsdower when I first got them:

But Zap was bullying Rowsdower, so I had to separate them. Look at how scared he was :(

My daughter, who also did my avatar, keeps rats and has made lots of paintings of them (always paints one when it dies). I tried posting one but as usual can't get it to work. The above link will take you to one of them with thumbnails for a lot more.

Cagney never actually said "you dirty Rat" but a line in his 1932 film "Taxi!" probably came closest.

Ha, Deptford Mice! I remembered reading those books as a kid, they were captivating and a bit scary. Had forgotten the series name. They're not very good PR for rats though.

I had a dream the other night that my sister got married and at the end of the ceremony she turned to face the crowd and said "I've got a BIG surprise" and in both her arms she was cradling a giant (living) rat made of smoke/clouds. I should clarify that she is a notorious lover of rodents and has had rats before.
