The thing about rats is, they’re everywhere and they’re nowhere. They’re everywhere in the sense that any concentration of humans collected anywhere on the planet coexist with our underworld rodent friends. They’re nowhere, in the sense that most people prefer not to see rats. Every so often, crossing paths with one might be unavoidable, but very few people go out actively seeking rats. It takes a specific kind of person to sympathize with and support something that a majority of the world has declared to be repugnant.
