Chinese New Year 2020!

This year in the Chinese Zodiac calendar it is the year of the rat!

Every day between 25th January - 15th February I shall be posting a different squeaky snap behind each day's door*!

Rats are clean and intelligent animals who don't deserve their negative reputation. Hopefully this calendar will help people see their cute side!


*In the interest of cultural sensitivity i won't be captioning the doors as is usual with my rodent calendars, i don't feel that i know enough about Chinese lore and customs to do this accurately and i wouldnt wish to cause offence :nah:

If anyone is from a Chinese ethnic background or is highly knowledgeable about the subject feel free to impart any interesting facts in this thread!

Preliminary taglist (please say if you wan't to be removed :fyi:)

There is no cat in the Chinese zodiac because the story goes that the rat forgot to invite the cat and that is why they are always at odds with each other

:pika: <- technically a rat

Ooh can I have a tag please?
I don't understand why they're viewed so negatively, I used to have a rat (my mum decided to call her Boudica for some reason?? :rofl:) and she was honestly one of the most affectionate pets I've owned.

She used to like crawling up my dressing gown sleeves and laying on the waistband at my back. :laugh:
