101. Rats and Cats
This is Squirrel, my 12 year old tabby cat and her adopted orphan kitten, Goblin. The not-kitten is a little orphaned white rat named Lucky. He was running around on the bed one day when Squirrel was nursing the kitten, and these are the pictures I took.
I have another adult rat (that I rescued from a pet store on Christmas Eve last year as it was about to be sold for snake food) named Chrismouse that already thinks he's a cat. I have seen him sleeping all curled up under a pile of 3 cats. The cats and rats play and sleep with each other all the time and Squirrel mothers all of them.
