Jessica wrote me a short email, "Pete and Helen his girlfriend. 🙂 I just had to share with you." with this photo:
Not something you see every day, a Ragdoll kitten with a rat.
I have a high school friend who loves rats and also has cats - so I know they can get along well.
I replied, "oh my. which one did you have first? is the rat trying to lick inside the kitten's mouth?"
Jessica replied, "They like to groom each other. We got them both about the same time actually."
And I responded, "Interesting! Have you had rats and cats before?"
And Jessica said, "I have. For years. Most of the time they do become great friends but Pete and Helen are a bit different."
And then said, "How so? I would love to do a feature about cats and rats! Would be interesting to the readership, I think!"
Jessica then sent: "So the albino rats seem to especially get along with cats. They tend to be more trusting because of the fact that they are near blind/blind.
Do you have a pet rat with your cat? How do they get along?
