Rats are truly misunderstood.
Just look at this little guy. He's just trying to eat a spaghetti dinner in peace, thank you very much.
He isn't terrorizing children, making women scream, or scaring elephants.
He's just a rat and being as cute as he can be.
Rats have a bad reputation. And while I wouldn't want to be trapped in a New York subway tunnel in the middle of the night, I could manage having this little guy eating spaghetti in my lap. He looks so soft!
At least rats got a bit of positive media when Pixar released "Ratatouille," the story of a misunderstood rat just trying to make it as a chef.
Just like Remy in "Ratatouille," this rat is just trying to make it in the food world as a respected creature that deserves some cuteness credit.
