I had a pet rat when I was younger.
And she was a wonderful pet: affectionate, playful, with whooshing little whiskers and a soft nose.
Used to ride on my shoulder as I walked around the house.
Anyway, because of my fond memories of her, I’m particularly partial to anything involving these adorable rodents. (Yes, I said it: adorable.) So I’m sharing some videos I found recently.
