A Rat in Love with a Cat

Actually, it’s two rats that follow this cat all around the house; but only one of them cuddles up to the cat every chance she gets.

As pets, rats are affectionate, playful, and very smart. Sort of like cats. This is the first time I’ve seen this kind of relationship; but having known and loved both cats and rats, I find I’m not surprised.

You should’ve seen the people in the vet’s office, who at first made faces and sort of cringed, gushing over my rat as she sat so well-behaved on Daddy’s shoulder. Didn’t take her very long to win them over!
