    Looks like a pretty fuzzy earring!

  2. Gigi (the original one) says:

    Nice phot, I can almost feel the tickle tickle of the tiny paws on naked skin.

  3. Retired Hippie says:

    Argh! Where was this service when I was dating my ex-husband????

  4. Gigi (the original one) says:

    Oups, phot?? Where did the o go? .

  5. bookmonstercats says:

    Adeline suits her down-do.

  6. That’s nothing compared to when they decide they smell something interesting in your ear. Nosicle ear tickles from a rat are amazing.

  7. Henna hair harbors hidden helper.

  8. Stephanie says:

    Heh, I’m happily married, so my boys just keep my neck warm and let me know when I should be getting a snack- which seems to be always.

    Do tell.

    ………….I kinda like the lips on the girl.

    And I kinda want a rat now, but I think my dogs would never leave it alone.

    Buy more than one and they come in their own handy Rat Pack.

    i can haz yogi? cheerio? grape? pasta? lettuce? carrots? rice? sunflower seeds? bread? apple? cucumber? peanut? oats?
    ((does the nervous pawshuffle dance))

  16. I beg to differ. Nosicle/nostril tickles are a whole order of magnitude above that. I had a rat who liked to groom the inside of my nose. I’d put my face down really close to hers and she’d shove her tongue up into my nostrils and nibble on the rims a bit. It never hurt, just tickled a little.

  17. My boyfriend’s cat, Carmen, is fascinated by our rats. She so loves watching them. We have occasionally sort of introduced them — under very close supervision of course. Carmen doesn’t seem to know what the rats are, she’s just very curious and wanting to touch like “but they’re furry and wiggly and I want to play with them, please.” The rats on the other hand are totally unimpressed by the cat and mostly ignore her. Except once she jumped on top of their cage and sat there and let her tail drop down through the bars. Then they nipped it. Carmen never let that happen again!

    I am quite sure that if anything, god forbid, should go wry with Carmen and the rats, Carmen would get the worse end of it.

    This kinda reminds me of the movie “Ratatouille.”

    (I’m just a kid!)

  19. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    It’s clevairly concealed. Call Agent 99 from Get Smart!!

  20. Rats ‘n’ Backs (TM)

  21. You mean I mist it by n’that much?

  22. skippymom says:

    The girl looks like Sara from the comic strip Zits!

  23. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:


  24. It could turn into a lurve story…

  25. darkshines says:

    As everyone knows, I had fancy rats for years, but I recently became a cat mom for the first time. Gizmo doesn’t seem *too* fussed on rodents, prefering to chase anything remotely bird like, or anything dangly (shoes laces for example) but even if he didn’t attack, he would certainly stalk within an inch of his life. He is the nosiest, most curious cat ever. He also loves boxes and bags as much as Maru ❤ x

  26. Ali-baba says:

    Peek a boo, I see you! 🙂

  27. Awwww. Now I want a persistent, cuddly ratsie of my own.

  28. I could see that happening, except with the cat being smitten and the rat barely putting up with it.

  29. Mary (the first) says:

    lol there aren’t many places you could admit that, but I think you’re safe here! 😀

  30. Bravo!

  31. Yes it does.

  32. rat radar reliably rates rogues, ruffians, rascals, and rapscallions.

  33. Ah! My little rat Chocolate used to do that. He’d hang out on my shoulder, and eventually he learned to jump from my shoulder to my mom’s. He won first prize at the pet fair. Oh yeah. Rat for the win. 😉

  34. Ooo… excellent!

  35. More ratty pics, please!

  36. Meaghan, you are not alone! Mine would also try to clean my molars if I opened my mouth.

  37. most dogs i introduced to my rats seemed vaguely disgusted — especially my parents’ corgi. i’d hold up a rattie, and she’d lean back slightly, turning her head away and looking over her shoulder. my theory is that they smell too clean to dogs. it’s like holding out wiggly a bar of soap.

  38. We call that “rodentistry” around here.

  39. Stephanie says:

    I really think they just sit there because they think they’re in some Anime, where they control the giant treat-getting machine by mind control through the skull… 🙂

  40. “ratted out” takes on a whole new dimension!

  41. bookmonstercats says:

    It’s about the only place people might express envy!

  42. I guess this is a “Rats n straps” category-photo.

  43. Hon Glad says:

    They could warn us of other rats, like the office rats, that rat on you.

  44. I agree! Rats make the best little pets!

  45. Is this little ratty actually named Adeline?? That’s adorable! Please tell me she sings in a rat barbershop quartet!

  46. ha! at the wiggly bar of soap analogy!

    My cats have always pretty much ignored my guinea pigs. I really think they somehow understand that they are family members too, and not hunting material. But of course, I would never go so far as to tempt them with hamsters or mice or such small animals.

    Also, I can’t believe nobody has done this yet –
    >tiny beep< on the nose!
    And I love the teensy tiny toes!

  47. brinnann says:

    😆 Thank you! I was racking my brain trying to put this in a category.

  48. Malinki says:

    Here’s a few videos of ours 🙂

  49. She’s probably the ba-rat-tone!

  50. Rah-Rah, KittyAdventures!

  51. Colonel Jenna says:

    My brother’s old whippet was actually out-ranked in the family pack by my rat, and would leave the room if he saw Tikkus out of the cage. Every other dog (mostly dachshunds) have been convinced that rats and mice and gerbils etc are Lunch, and we’ve had to keep them strictly apart.

  52. Colonel Jenna says:

    Try having a curious mouse stick her entire nose up your nostril, whiskers and all…. But little compares with the “sniffle snuffle snuffle sneeze!” right in your ear.

  53. HAW!

  54. mommy here! her name is Adeline! She sings along side her sister Eleanor! =D

  55. Singing ratties! *thud*

  56. muttluver says:

    Hahaha wow.

    That is one whipped Whippet.

    ……..racking………………….. brings a whole……. plethora of…. unwanted images in this context………

    Now, wracking your brain makes sense. (Don’t ya love the English language?)
