    Wonderful! It took many hours and much love to accomplish that. Lucky ratties to have such a great owner.

  4. I fell in love with rats when I saw the movie Willard back in 1971, the only reason why I don’t have one is that they are so short lived. My heart couldn’t take it.

  5. rescue gal says:

    Me too.I have had two and loosing them was heartbreaking. I can’t go through that so quickly every time.

  6. 6rabbits says:

    I knew a rat that lived for 3 years–surgery due to cancer gave him an extra 9 months. Most of my “rat friends” have lived about 2 years, and that IS way too short of a time for such intelligent, personable animals.

  7. Dramatic teddy bear rescue!!!!!!

  8. That was my favorite part, too!

  9. Or should I say “rescute”??

  10. Bravo to the rats and the trainer

  11. Victoria, Mom to 4 Rats says:

    D’awww. But C.O., you’re still making me jealous. My lazy bums, er, rats, do none of these things.

    But if you want to see a really awesome rat trick (not my lazy bums), try watching rat basketball: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jAQSEO25fa4

  12. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    Victoria, as the mother to 28 rats over the years, your work is beautiful. Your rats are beautiful. Give them all tons of kisses and hugs from me.

  13. bluebird says:

    What busy, happy rats

  14. Janet in Cambridge says:

    This is one of the best ever examples of rats’ sweetness and intelligence and the beauty of clicker training! I love ratties.

  15. That was thoroughly enjoyable and I love the cute socks the owner made! Nice work all around

  16. Sharon Wilson says:

    But can the ratty put her bowl in the dishwasher?

  17. Probably.

  18. So so darn adorabuhls. :)

  19. 6rabbits says:

    Found this a couple months ago and was amazed at the variety of tricks! On her Youtube site she writes that she wants to become an animal trainer. Such cute and talented rats! :-)

  20. I was going to ask whether adorable ratso could do the ironing as well as the washing, but then I saw the teddy bear rescute and decided I didn’t care.

  21. kodalai says:

    I don’t want to sadden the mood of this adorable video, but it seems that Nami (the light-colored rat in the video) has passed away since the video was made. What a shame such clever creatures have such a short lifespan :(

  22. zosterops says:

    what an interesting and fulfilling life these rats must have with so much challenges and rewards.
