We let our rat Beezus run around the living room for a longish time unsupervised, without knowing it. When Dawn went to stick her back in the cage, she discovered a partially dismembered, barely alive bumblebee on the floor in the middle of the room. It seemed pretty likely that Beezus had tried gnawing on the thing. The bee was missing, among other things, one of its legs, and a good chunk of its butt--where all the hurty bits are. We checked Beezus as best we could, but we couldn't see any indication of a sting, and she seemed to be breathing OK. If anything, she seemed quite pleased with herself. She rarely gets to play the role of the mighty huntress.
