Rats shouldn't tag along in hoodies
We're already a little uncomfortable with rats being kept as pets, but this photo takes that idea to a creepy new level. Please, for the sanity of all unsuspecting friends, don't carry your pet rat in your sweatshirt as a cute little surprise. If you lived in a big city, you'd be praying you didn't find one of those creatures hanging out in your clothes without your permission.
Here is what the photo's caption says: "The keeper of this rat is just off-camera to the left. We had no idea he had it until he reached back into his hood and introduced it."
Ick. Why not a cute mewing kitten or trembling puppy instead? Guaranteed to win the ladies in no time.
