The Rat is a Symbol of Wisdom
The Rat (鼠) is one of the 12-year cycle of animals which appear in the Chinese zodiac related to the Chinese calendar, the Year of the Rat is associated with the earthly branch symbol 子. In some parts of the world, a year associated with this animal 鼠 is referred to as Year of the Mouse because the word may be translated to “rat”, “mouse”, or more broadly, “rodent”.
