My neighbor is taking care of a tiny kitten (I hope she keeps him!) and he LOVES her rat
I am not really a fan of rats but they are cute together.. they love to play.

They even match! That's so cute!

And rats are such great pets! They're really friendly and intelligent.

We're guessing the kit is about 5 weeks. Some kids found him and gave him to my neighbor at the barn where she takes care of her horses. So she took him home to take care of him. She already has 2 cats (the limit here at our apts
) and 5 rats!! But we're taking care of him at least until he can be adopted. He is SO freaking cute.. I have never been around such a little kit and its so much fun to watch him grow and develop. Her cats dont like him but the rats do

Wow that is so cute - I like mice over rats, but that is a precious picture - wonder what will happen when kitty is 3-4 times the size of that rat?

Adorable. I should think growing up together should instill in the kitty that "rats are friends"....I have seen pics of adult cats curled lovingly up with rats.
Its a weird juxtaposition but its so cute.

OMG, these pictures just get cuter and cuter!

That last one would definitely make a great poster!
