i have no idea why people still see rats as like ‘gross’ and ‘ugly’ when they look like something made up to appeal to people who like soft animals

Those are pet rats. Not going to say that pestilence rats are as vicious and unkempt as we depict them, but they won’t look as good as a pet rat any day.

womp womp theyre even cuter

How dare you insult them

Hispid Cotton Rat, native to Texas. This is a younger one, I have a family of them in my yard. They’re so sweet.
