  1. look at its little hands!!

  2. Still, even though I normally hate “cute”… love it.
    It’d be much cuter if it was a big white Wistar, maybe with ONE of the pink eyes half open as if it was starting to wake up.

  3. So Very Cute… and I hope it wasn’t dead. Am a little suspicious of animals posed in cute but unlikely ways.

  4. Nonono, it was me that was ded of teh cute! The ratty was very much alive, as seen in the rest of the photoseries. Just napping.

  5. Ded of plague possibly, but cute it aint (rat it iz).

    It’s surprising how many people who spend their working days sacrificing rats (more than 20 years ago for me) think that rats are so cute they have rats as pets. If I was allowed pets in my flat, they’d be rats (2 female Wistars).
    You’ve obviously never had a Wistar running up your arm, sitting on your shoulder like a parrot would, and snuffling at your ears (dunno why they do that). Yep, probably the thought is just making you shudder, but seriously, rats are clean and can even be toilet-trained for number twos (unlike mice, which are considered cute by many, but sh*t everywhere). Besides, mice bite, rats that know you don’t, even when you’re sticking a whopping great needle in their belly.
    Come on TigTog, you did biol, care to speak up in favor of ratty?

  8. I used to have a white rat called Ruth. She was a gentle soul who was easy to carry around and not a biter at all. Actually I had two at one point but I can’t remember the other rat’s name; bad rat owner! My BF had one too and one day we took them to school in our pockets and produced them at an opportune moment. Teacher SQUEEEEEE! (But not at teh cute, I think 😉 )

  9. Definitely cutest. Ever 🙂

  10. That’s adorable!
    I don’t really like rats that much, but that’s really actually kinda sweet.

    Actually I’m not 100% ratist. The big white lab ones are lovely (though the pink eyes are a bit of a worry) and I was at school with a girl who had a trio of very handsome hoodies that used to crawl all over us. It’s just that this one looks like a (bog)standard sewer rat.

    Sorry, I missed this yesterday.
    Rats are fine – they’re not particularly my dream pet, but I know people who love having them around, and they’re cute enough.

  13. That is super-cute!
    This is my favourite cute animal picture for the week (apologies if someone has posted this somewhere on here already): http://i42.tinypic.com/21n3wxk.jpg
