These are exactly the myths and misconceptions that World Rat Day (celebrated every year on April 4th) hopes to dispel as it celebrates the joys of fancy rats.

Woman Creates Tiny Mattresses For Rats Including Matching Pajamas

Mattresses? More like rattresses! 'Rattresses' is what Etsy shop owner, Lord Duncan the Rat, calls her tiny and adorable mattresses -- especially made for rats. Unfortunately, the model and inspiration behind these cute mattresses, Lord Duncan himself, has sadly passed away just a month ago. 

This isn't the first creative rat we've seen that has passed too soon. Darius, the famous-painting rat, also passed in early 2019. 

Both Lord Duncan and Darius live on through the creativity of their owners and the hearts of animal lovers from around the world!

GGMR - or Gotta Get More Rats - could be the most curious case of illness seen in quite some time. And no, this isn't something we made up, it's a moniker thought up by people in the rat loving community who are addicted to rats. Chantel Banks, the woman in the video above, maintains a household complete with 19 long tailed rodents otherwise known as rats. When she's not busy "huffing" her pets (a word she uses to describe pressing the rodents against her nose and mouth and deeply inhaling their scent into her lungs) she's studying their personalities in order to cater to their every whim. The crazy pet lifestyle she's living has put quite a burden on her marriage since Chantal has decided to move into a separate apartment away from her husband in order to create space for more rodents.
