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.

Photographer Shoots Adorable Rats In Order To Fight Against The Stigma Surrounding Rodents

Photographer Diane Ozdamar just love rats! That's why she decided to break the stereotypes around these furry companions by photo shooting fancy rats that are highly domesticated. With this lovely photos, she hopes to show everyone that rats are social, highly intelligent and even clean.  The main idea behind this project was to encourage people to adopt the rats so that they do not feel homeless and get the same care and attention as the other pet animals. Some of the rats you can see in the following gallery are hers, others are rats she has fostered, and some belonged to her friends.
