Also this slip-up is about the GLASS, not the RAT! ...just a thought.

If you want to be technical about drinking dead blood, it is not healthy for a vampire to drink blood from a body once the heart has stopped beating. But the rat's blood was drained when its heart was beating. Otherwise, it would not have dripped out as easily as it did. The rat's heart stopped beating after being drained. Therefore, the blood was not, "dead blood."

I'm going to get even MORE technical. Actually, even if it's NOT (here we go again) in the BOOK it IS possible, and Lestat did drink it from a wineglass during the scene with the hooker in the book as well. Nothing happened to him. Even if it doesn't make sense, I asssume the blood drinking rule only applies to when the blood is in the body.

Take it a step farther... I think it is reasonable to assume that the rat is dead when it's blood is drunk, and we see what drinking dead blood does later in the movie
