Last year someone gave me one of those Easter rabbits with a little bell round its neck and once I had wolfed the chocolate I felt a terrible urge to put said bell on a rat. I chose Lilian because she is the bolshiest and wasn't going to be upset by this. She completely ignored it, in fact. Anyway that's why there is a ribbon round her on this picture. I don't usually go round putting ribbons on pets, like the mad artist in Spaced who puts ruffs on pet dogs and makes them dance for him. It's the best picture I have of her. She looks older now.
Here is Lilian in the hammock on top of Yaffle. The grey ball in the corner is Muesli sleeping on her head. You can just about see her two pink ears against the grey shelf.
