Maybe the rat was a close friend of the mouse. Stricken with grief, the rat decides to avenge its fallen brother. After months of searching, it finally picks up a signal from your phone and manages to track you down on the San Francisco streets, only to nearly suffer the same fate.
That's the only logical explanation.
Oh my! A rat running at you, I'm speechless!
Since when rats run toward people? ;) San Francisco rats must be so bold.
I was bitten once by an insect while camping and I had to go the ER at 3AM. It wasn't serious though
and I only took an injection at the hospital and I was prescribed some pills. I do have sort of visions
or I should probably call them daydreams about being bitten by my neighbour's German Shepherds :D
They are huge and I used to feed them so that they treat me as a friend ;) I still fear them and I had
a sudden drop in my blood pressure once when they weren't on a leash. Had they been smaller, I would
have felt safer when I pass by them. Watching videos about people being attacked by dogs doesn't help!
My experiences with getting tussled by animals include.
Getting rammed in the back by a goat's horn.
Smacked on the face by a cow's tail.
Pecked on my leg by my neighbor's chicken while it ran after me for no apparent reason.
Multiple scratches by cats i used to keep as pets.
And getting my hand grazed by a bull's horn.
