Rattus Walks Against Warming

I heard about Walk Against Warming and I thought this might be a good opportunity to give Rattus another outing and help out a good cause at the same time. (I admit the former rather than the latter was my primary motivation--I am sceptical as to how much good these sort of demonstrations do.) Rattus was well received and it was a fun outing. Thanks go out to sebkha for escorting me; I couldn't have done it without him.

It was much too warm for a full fursuit so I jury-rigged some pink gloves for going out as a partial. At least I was well protected from the sun!

I want a white mouse suit so that I can be a lab rat myself! ;)

I caught Rattus segment on SBS Alter Ego's tonight.

Rattus is now also a TV star as well.

Aww, thank you. But Rattus appeared only fleetingly and inanimate (unless they changed it... "as it was going out the door!"*) although they shot a lot more footage they didn't use. Of more value was this march, as I'm told Rattus appeared on the Channel 9 evening news.



* This is possible, and if so I'd love to hear about it. I didn't stay up for it as I'd already seen what I took to be the final cut of the documentary some months earlier.

Rattus did make an appearance on the Channel 7 News broadcast in QLD. He appeared twice, during the leading headlines at the top of the show, and again at the end of the news segment. The appearance was only brief, but you nevertheless stood out from the crowd!

Score! Thank you for telling me. Since you captured this screenshot, am I to take it that you have a recording of the whole segment? But who is this mysterious new benefactor? A Logan furry?

Yeah, I've still got the whole segment on record. I was curious looking at the segment as to who the Rat was... and so here is where I found you, in your little nest.

Yep, I'm a Southside Logan furry.

I'm very impressed you were able to track me down just from seeing a rat suit in passing on TV. I have a friend who recorded both the channels 7 and 9 evening news for Saturday, so I should be able to get them from him.

I'm glad I did track you down... having explored your last 350+ posts, I found your entries quite fascinating :)

Dude, I'm a dinosaur too. I say go Global Warming! ;-)

Awesome getting out there in the mask like that. Cute sign too.
