Rats that Laugh When Tickled … and Do Laundry

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.

First, Scientists Discover that Rats Laugh When Tickled:

And second, 15 Incredible Rat Tricks.  Although “Fetch” was totally cute, my favorites were “Do Laundry” and “Dramatic Teddy Bear Rescue.”
