Phin, Jorden Basque's pet rat, checks out one of two plastic prizes after being judged by audience applause at Ratapalooza Saturday in the Phinney Neighborhood Association's community hall. He competed in a number of categories including kissiest. More than 150 rats and 70 people came to the event. Phin chose the red rat he's sniffing. Jorden said her rat is "really calm, squishy and loving."
