Rat Catcher's Day

Rat Catcher's Day is celebrated partly to honor those who hunt and dispose of pesky house rats, but it's mostly to recognize the fabled Pied Piper of Hamelin who drove rats out of the German town back in the 14th century.

To confuse matters, it turns out that July 22 and June 26 are actually linked to the legend, but we're going to stick with today's date.

In case you were wondering -- the rat traps used in the picture were purchased at the Dollar Store specifically for this photo shoot, and not some that we had lying around. Hopefully you know that I keep a clean house so we don't have any rat problems here!


  1. Wow, these are great! Thank you for sharing your treats on this mostly forgotten day. ;)
