Here is Eric playing with his favorite toy, Scruffy Rat. Eric has had Scruffy Rat since he was a little kitten and he loves it dearly. It is losing its fur and most of the stuffing has come out, but Eric refuses all attempts to get him a replacement. He carries it around in his mouth, tosses it into the air, puts the bitey on it, bunny kicks it and uses it for a pillow to nap on. Eric and Flynn are litter brothers and they are approximately the same size, but Eric weighs 21 pounds and Flynn weighs 13 pounds. They both get exactly the same food in the same amounts, though Eric does eat more mice than Flynn. That's because Flynn would rather catch the mice than eat them, so he gives them to Eric after he catches them, though Flynn does eat some himself. The main difference is that Flynn is more active than Eric. Eric would rather nap than run, while Flynn is always chasing after prey and climbing trees. Eric can run and chase prey and climb trees, he just doesn't like doing it as much as Flynn does.
Eric loves the rat which is scruffy.
It's losing its fur and is not very fluffy.
He carries it around
And sleeps with it, sound.
It's his favorite toy when he wants to play rough-y.
