There are definitely some cute rats we found on Instagram. While animal puns are hilarious we really enjoy these rat puns more than the pet pun list we wrote. Rat puns are more creative than some cat and dog puns you always see or read in a Disney film.

Rat jokes are tweeted on social media more often than you may think and these go well beyond 'ratatouille' which is such an overused rat name. Funny rat puns should have a place in an email to friends or colleagues. Perhaps later today you tweet the joke and see what response you get!

This isn't a rat race so take your time and go through all the puns slowly so you don't miss any! if a light bulb goes off and we missed any then please leave them below in the comments. This isn't a 'rat trap' we'd love to hear from you!
