Everything is Pizza to a rat.
In our house, if we want to get every-rat's attention, we yell "pizza!" It works. We actually just made that up to go along with their little doggy-like drool-faces they put on when they smell food as "Kibbles-n-Bits" just didn't cut it.
Did you know, for example, that humans are pizza? Sure, we taste like chicken, but chicken is pizza, therefore human is pizza.
As an aside, I love it when they grab your fingers and try to tug them into the cage. I love it when they have their mouths wrapped around your fingers and they don't bite down hard, but you can tell they have no intention of letting go. Good thing we're tasty!
