In Psychology as a Natural Science, we all had pair up and work with a lab rat for a few weeks. We had to teach them things. We had to water deprive them while doing so. I hated water depriving my rat, but loved cuddling with him and teaching him things. I bonded with him. My last semester at Arcadia, I volunteered in the rat lab to feed the rats and clean their cages. I petted all of them. I bonded with several of them. I went into the lab and did sketches of the rats. One of the professors had me do a sketch of a lab rat to put on the cover of a thesis book.
