Meet our very own Office Ratty

Office Ratty is one of our little friends who goes Out There, out of the house. Yes, he goes into the bright, wide world. Most of us stay warm and cosy and safe in the house, usually napping on the cushions. But Ratty bravely goes to an Office to earn a crust. He calls it ‘commuting’. Ratty is very experienced at commuting.

Just an office rat,
Any day of the week.
A stoic office rat
On a cold metal seat.

Office Ratty commutes to an office

In the dim winter light
Ratty waits, as he must,
To commute to an Office,
and there to make a crust*.

*Preferably a flaky crust topped by jarlberg cheese and a light spread of fig and date chutney. A rat can dream.

You can also see our brave little guy on The Blither for Me, Mawson (whispered conference with friends), sorry on the Twitter for me. And on our BearAGram. He has his own cheese tag there too. (Whispered conference). Errr, no it seems there is no cheese at all on the tag. Its a hash brown tag (more whispering) .. errr No, its just a Hash Tag. It looks like this: #OfficeRatty. Try it and see, on our Blither, or the twittery thingy.

You have wandered into Mawson Bear’s web-den. Mawson is the Writer-Bear of It’s A Bright World To Feel Lost In  and Dreamy Days and Random Naps and She Ran Away From Love.

  1. I love Office Ratty’s posts…Hmm, could he have his own book? I see a cover with John Brack’s painting ‘Collins St 5pm’, and Office Ratty in the foreground 🙂
