I love this song for two different reasons. Firstly, the lyrics are all about acceptance, and that resonates with me. Secondly - it was written about a rat, being a rat keeper - and totally rat mad, I love that fact!!!! And so many of the lyrics sum up to me how I feel about my own rats.

Ben


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
(you've got a friend in me)

Ben, you're always running here and there
You feel you're not wanted anywhere
If you ever look behind
And don't like what you find
There's one thing you should know
You've got a place to go
(you've got a place to go)

I used to say "I" and "me"
Now it's "us", now it's "we"
I used to say "I" and "me"
Now it's "us", now it's "we"
Ben, most people would turn you away
I don't listen to a word they say
They don't see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I'm sure they'd think again
If they had a friend like Ben
(a friend) Like Ben
(like Ben) Like Ben


So - I decided to craft a rat as homage to the song, and to my own furry friends.

I pondered how to do this ion a 'different' way - and was hit by inspiration when I woke up one morning to find the world had turned white! I love playing in snow - but as I live in the UK we dont get much.

I'd therefore like to introduce Ben, the Snow Rat!
