Animals, Fire, and Girls: Fat rat stuck in manhole rescued by firefighters in Germany KATE LYONS FEBRUARY 27, 2019 A multi-agency rescue operation has taken place in the town of Bensheim in Germany after a tubby rat became stuck in a manhole cover.

 A multi-agency rescue operation has taken place in the town of Bensheim in
 Germany after a tubby rat became stuck in a manhole cover.

 bacon and refers to extra pounds piled on in the colder months became
 stuck after it tried to squeeze through a small gap in the sewer cover.
 The Auerbach volunteer fire brigade was called in, as was the Rhein Neckar
 animal rescue team, and together a team of about eight rescuers was able to

They are desperate and on the verge of having their project shut down when they notice one of the test dogs is pregnant.

Advice, Cats, and Clothes: From This Angle ANOVAN Not Just Kitten By ANNE WELSH After years spent in silence, I gather courage to speak out on one petty, relatively insignifieant aspect of campus fe that really irks me: the existence and attire of the mascot known as the Wild Kitten Women have been at Villanova now for over twenty ears. We have studied, partied, cheated, cheered with the best of Villanova's men. We did not complain about the urinals in Dougherty's ladies room, and the pain and suf fering endured trying to get the one and only facility for men in Tolentine. We put up with our business teacher ying we kept him from telling the many hilarious sexual anecdotes which he probably never had. We have made do with the poor share of athletic. funds and facilities that women's sports receive But asking us to continue to accept the Wild Kitten as the representative of women at Villanova is asking too much First of all, a female wildcat is not a wild kitten. This grammatical distinction has obviously escaped many people; the fact that kittens are much cuter than cats ap parently induces people who think of girls as a cuter (and weaker) version of boys to make this elementary mistake But when all is fed and done, kittens are merely young cats of either sex Second, female wildcats do not wear skirts. (This may surprise some who still separate the human sexes by the design of their clothes) Further, female wildcats do not sport black pantyhos either with or without garters. Neither do they normally stalk their prey decked out in a pair of high black boots Perhaps the slinky seductiveness of this curious Cen taur-in-reverse (head of an animal, legs of a girl) is sup posed to excite and upset the players on the other team. Perhaps the kitten kicking her boots and twirling her tail like a gentle whip is needed to psyche our fans into a ๒ frenzy. Perhaps the girl inside the suit (who actually is very good and very spirited) needs a free ticket to the games None of these reasons is quite up to seratch. Let's face it, the Wild Kitten is not only blatantly sexist, but just plain weird. Until we Wild Kittens?", we should just have one kind of mascot, the Wildcat, to represent all the Villanova fans. And let the fur fly where it will. e ready to start cheering 'Let's advice-animal: My mom wrote a hot take in 1974 about her college’s sexist mascot that’s depressingly still funny today.

 mascot known as the Wild Kitten
 Women have been at Villanova now for over twenty
 ears. We have studied, partied, cheated, cheered with the
 best of Villanova's men. We did not complain about the
 urinals in Dougherty's ladies room, and the pain and suf
 fering endured trying to get the one and only facility for
 men in Tolentine. We put up with our business teacher
 ying we kept him from telling the many hilarious sexual
 anecdotes which he probably never had. We have made do
 with the poor share of athletic. funds and facilities that
 women's sports receive
 But asking us to continue to accept the Wild Kitten as
 the representative of women at Villanova is asking too
 much
 First of all, a female wildcat is not a wild kitten. This
 grammatical distinction has obviously escaped many
 people; the fact that kittens are much cuter than cats ap
 parently induces people who think of girls as a cuter (and
 weaker) version of boys to make this elementary mistake
 But when all is fed and done, kittens are merely young cats
 of either sex
 Second, female wildcats do not wear skirts. (This may
 surprise some who still separate the human sexes by the
 design of their clothes)
 Further, female wildcats do not sport black pantyhos
 either with or without garters. Neither do they normally
 stalk their prey decked out in a pair of high black boots
 Perhaps the slinky seductiveness of this curious Cen
 taur-in-reverse (head of an animal, legs of a girl) is sup
 posed to excite and upset the players on the other team.
 Perhaps the kitten kicking her boots and twirling her tail
 like a gentle whip is needed to psyche our fans into a
 ๒ frenzy. Perhaps the girl inside the suit (who actually is
 very good and very spirited) needs a free ticket to the
 games
 None of these reasons is quite up to seratch. Let's face
 it, the Wild Kitten is not only blatantly sexist, but just
 plain weird. Until we
 Wild Kittens?", we should just have one kind of mascot, the
 Wildcat, to represent all the Villanova fans. And let the fur
 fly where it will.

My mom wrote a hot take in 1974 about her college’s sexist mascot that’s depressingly still funny today.
