Rats in Hats


Let’s be honest: rats don’t always have the best reputation. They’ve been unfairly linked to smelly alleyways and unwanted infestations, but that may be a hasty judgement that’s best reserved for rats of the un-fancy kind. These friendly and highly intelligent rodents are considered a treasured pet by many, and in certain cases, they can actually be quite stylish.

Althought the idea of dressing up a rat may be hard for some people to grasp (not unlike the idea of dying a miniature poodle pink), it’s not as uncommon as you would think. As pet fashion designer Ada Nieves explains, “The rats look cute and seem to like wearing outfits. Rats are very popular these days and the owners love to dress them up.” Sometimes, you just have to let your rat put on a hat and strut down the runway.



I find this all a bit odd….


How about you?
