Department of Rats: Blake le Rat's first Facebook cause page

I couldn't figure out how to make a "pet page" on facebooks for our pet rats, Blake le Rat & Doggy Rat. (I've heard of many people creating facebook pages for their dogs, &c., but there's no easy way to do it. Even Mark Zuckerberg's dog, Beast, has his own page, but he's listed as a "public figure." Why don't they just make "dog" or "pet" or "animal" or "rat" as options?)
Anyway, so instead, I created a "cause" page for Blake le Rat's issue of her lifetime: getting on floor. If you support this cause, I encourage you to "like" her page. The argument of this movement is summed up in the opening lines of the song The Manna Tease wrote for her, "It's a Snoopy Snoopy Poop Doggy Ratty Rat World":

She wants to get on floor, but she's not allowed on floor.
She wants to go explore, but floor could lead to door.
Blake le Rat, you're curious as a dolphin.
You're just a rat, but the world is in your tiny hand.
Pure poetry, and now she has a cause: FLOOR.
