I really think our little ratty friends are quite cute assembled, but all their little pieces are simply adorable too. Take a look!

To start this on topic, I think there's nothing greater that a rat's furry pertaters (potatoes if you don't read "hick").

Ah, the belly! I just love tickling it silly! And don't forget to tickle their necks too! Clinical studies show they get a kick out of that!

The nose knows...where those treats are!

You wouldn't know by looking at these delicate and beautiful whiskers that they were the supreme tickling machine!

Two cute ears! All the better to hear you with, my dears!
really, they're incredible: Look at the acoustic potential!

Although they really don't see much out of them, they're there to help convince us that treats are necessary! No matter the color, it's impossible to resist. (Tip: See ratbehavior.org for more about rat vision!)

Those cute little flaps that let rodents be rodents: Just think, they can drill anything down and those flaps keep the crud out of their mouths so they can create lots of destroyed-antique dust in no time without causing injury to themselves!

And look at those cute little nibblers! No wonder they're so great at shredding! Those incisors of theirs are always growing so they have to drill them down.
And in case you didn't know, those bottom teeth can separate to inflict a more effective bite so if you ever find an ill wild rat, be careful: They can and will muster enough energy to send you away!

And those cute little molars!

I gush at the sight of them. Hey, they have to eat! I just really want a miniature toothbrush to give them so they can keep them clean :o)

Roll out the carpet! There's that cute little ratty tongue that spends so many hours keeping them - and us - clean!

And those sweet, sweet paws: I just love being pulled in by them!

Those feet! Aren't they sweet?
