Diet woes, rodent version

I've been noticing lately that my rats, Nicodemus and Weezie, are getting increasingly chubby. Now, I know that rats are supposed to get fat (hence the label "fat rat") and the sewer types in NYC could put mine to shame, but they're both still too pudgy.

I created a type of South Beach program for them --I cut all of the sugary foods out of their diets. No more sweet yogurt drops or rat candies, and definitely no human food unless it's a vegetable.

They've been on this diet now for a few weeks and I swear they're just getting fatter. They're so big I need two hands to lift them --I can't get my fingers even halfway around their bellies anymore.

Why is it so gosh darn hard to lose weight nowadays?


"Weezie, are you pondering what I'm pondering?"

"I think so , Nicodemus, but would "The Sweet Yogurt Drops" really be such a good name for a rock band?"

Your nodding acquaintance

Hey, my rats had no hand in coming up with that one! Give credit where credit is due
