Happy New Year of the Metal Rat! Wishing all my friends lots of Love, Joy and Prosperity <3 <3
The Zodiacal Rat is the first of the repeating 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac, constituting part of the Chinese calendar system, according to Wikipedia.
As far as I'm concerned, I'm a big fan of rats and I own 3 at present. Rats are very smart creatures and they make wonderful pets. The only minus is that they live up to 3 years.
