Thirty Little Collages - Wood Rat

This group of postings show the finished 6" x 6" collages and also the text that I wrote about the animal and included in the collage.

There are at least two wood rat nests on my property.  They are large structures of intertwined sticks leaning against the bases of trees.  Sometimes I leave something shiny - like a bottlecap - near one of the nests and it's always gone the next morning.

Last year I rehabbed a young one that my sister found under her bed.  I kept him in a cage in my bathroom for a few weeks and throughout that time her was very active and noisy at night.  And that really disturbed my poor cats' beauty sleep.  After a while I released him.  God with God, little treasure!
