The third stamp in the Isle of Man set for this year shows the happy rat enjoying the flowers. I wonder what he found to eat.

I just found out that there are "The Rescuers" stamps that were offered in Grenada Grenadines and St. Vincent. I loved that movie when my son was younger. This is not mine yet, borrowed image.

The fourth in the Isle of Man set shows the rat again among the flowers. Idebee, indeed the tiny mountain pygmy possum (Burramys parvus) isn't a mouse or a rat, but a marsupial and lives in higher altitudes in Australia. They are quite endangered as a species. But you're right, real rats do not have a prehensile tail!

A rat for the Year of the rat in 1997! Nowadays he might bump into a satellite at that altitude.

In China, people generally don't think a dog can catch mice, and there is even an old idiom going like so meddlesome as a dog to catch mice, or mind your own business! But it is interesting to find out that it's actually not the case, at least in some other parts of the world.

Then, I did some research online and discovered that cats will only occasionally bringing home a rodent prey just to brag about it, but they're not as prone to catching them. Dogs, on the other hand, are the ideal solution to any rat problem. There are certain breeds that were specially created to control the rat population.

The fountain in Bonndorf shows a scene from the story of Ketti the Mouse written by Auguste Liesch. It is based on Aesop's fable of the country mouse and the city mouse. Here the two mouse friends are getting into trouble with two cats and have caused a major upset in the cafe.

(I very much enjoyed looking at this fountain when I was last there.)
