The Mostly Unconscious Adventures of Bug the Rat


SOMEONE is bright-eyed, bushy ring-tailed and ready to....


And I'm suuuuuure she's gonna get a move on riiiiight after this liiiiitle nap.

Perhaps a swig of Dr. P. will get her moving?

Yes. Moving. Riiiiiiiiight after another lil' nap.

Still tie tie?

How about a Rats 'n' Racks photo op?

Yes, almost well-rested enough to take... on... the... honk-shuuuuu

Sure, a story together first. Couldn't hurt.

Look! Finally made it outside!

Shame there's no daylight left.

Where, oh where do you find rat-sized teddy bears? I MUST KNOW.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:22 AM

Rattie + teddy bears = *poit* passes out.

Heh. I really don't like rodentia (bad experiences), but this li'l guy has his day all worked out. I wouldn't snuggle him, probably, but I would definately approve of the various naps, and especially the story-time!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:28 AM

I have to say, I've never been too big on the whole keep-a-disease-spreading-rodent-as-a-pet thing.. but.. these pictures (especially those of it sleeping with a teddybear) really made me tilt my head and go -aawww.

Way to overthrow my prejudice with the soft cuddly honk-shu's and making me see rats as cute.

Never in a million years would I have thought I'd do that!

It'll probably go a million more until next time! ;-)

I'm sooooo busy ! but now I can't stop looking at those rattiehandsrattiefeets rattietonguerattiefingernailsrattieteddybears... Meeeeeg !!!! not fair !!!! we're supposed to be kickstarting the economy !!!!! not melting every 4 hours in a puddle of goo !!!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:30 AM

Have to admit, I've never quite managed to think of rats as cute, but Oh My! This comes closest. If only it weren't for that tail. BTW, is that a HUGE rat or where do you get the teeny-weeny Dr. Peppers?

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:30 AM

Hed-splort alert! Ohhh, the tiny feets splayed in the air with absolute naptime abandon...can I have just one teeny soft kronsch, pls?

*hed 'splodes everwhar*

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:33 AM

Does the ratty have TWO DIFFERENT TEDDY BEARS?? Awesome.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:38 AM

I concur, Szilvia...never thought I'd find a rat cute! I stand corrected. annnnnnnnnhhhhhhhhhh.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:40 AM

I'm definitely getting a rat when (if) my hamster dies!! I had two before, and they have such cute little personalities!!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:45 AM

It makes me miss my rat... I was a terrible rat parent because she didnt have a teddy bear! (Love the rat in the sunshine picture, with golden rays in the background!)

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:48 AM

Awwww! All pets should be so spoiled.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:53 AM

gosh i love cuteoverload

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 06:54 AM

zomg, i am definitely NOT a fan of rats, pets or otherwise, but my cold, dead unratty heart has been melted by these SUPERDUPAHELLACUTETASTIC photos. lovely!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:02 AM

adorable. i love her little bear collection.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:03 AM

I don't sleep well at night, but during the day I take a two-hour nap an earthquake couldn't wake me from. My wife delights in putting teddy bears into my arms and snapping photos of me during these naps.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:06 AM

Are you kidding me?? They make stuffed animals for rats? *kerplode*

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:17 AM

things I lurve: adored pets; spoiled pets; pets who has teddy b'ars; sleepy pets. I'm not ordinarily a rat-fan but I can see how they CAN be lurvely petses. Kudos to her lawvingk pipple.

I LOVE the rat-sized teddy bears! I want some for my guinea pigs! These are the cutest photos EVER of a rat. I especially love photo #2 (snuggle teeny-tiny teddy bear, back feetsies up in the air)!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:18 AM

Edward, that's hilarious!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:19 AM

Awww! I wish I could have a rat too! But I think my cat would like it for altogether different reasons... sigh.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:21 AM

I think this rat and I share the same genetic background. Lately I've been having the same problem getting out of bed. Must be this damn cold Canadian winter.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:22 AM

I totally girlie squealed!!!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:22 AM

looks a lot like my pet rats sara and mary, they where the sweetist lil girls eva... my dad was not so thirlled with them though

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:23 AM

He has two stuffed animals? Is the second one a lambie? OMGponies!!!!!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:27 AM

Little darling.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:36 AM

It's been a long cold lonely winter.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:37 AM

Makes me want to cuddle with the closest furry thing.... too cute for words.

The mini-Dr. Pepper was the best.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:38 AM

Rattie toes!!!!

I miss my ratties so much. :( Best pets ever for people with little homes.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:41 AM

Rizz sez "Some people are so touchy!"

I am in love withthis rattie and OMG Bug is a perfect name! Little snuggle Bug! WANT!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:42 AM

Those nails are so teeny! Lovely pic's. Although I have no idea where you'd find such a small Dr Pepper. Plus, do you really want a rodent hopped up on caffeine and corn syrup? Just wondering.

I especially like those cuddling pics. My cat tends to have a heavy head like that, even when she's awake. She just can't seem to keep her head up.

BTW, is the reader a male? Perhaps it's the scale next to the pocket pet but they have big hands. He may still read Danielle Steele, but my guess is that's a dewd.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:49 AM

My reactions to the pictures went something like this:

eeek! Rat!
Awwwww, teeny, tiny, teddy
eeek...wait, teeny Dr.P Huh?
Awwww, teddy and blankie
eeee, awww *confused*
EEEEEEEE! *Jumps out of way*

Video: awww, eeek, ehhhhh...kinda cute but eek!

Such confused feelings about cute rodents!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:55 AM

Gee, Bugmom, we wouldn't be a little prejudiced concerning the name "Bug" would we? :D

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:56 AM

One word: redonk. Please stop feeding the rattie warm milk and turkey!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 07:58 AM

That is one comfy lookin rattie! I wanna nap too. But I gotta work instead :(

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:04 AM

I am agog over the precious little handses.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:04 AM

OMG, the sleeping picture makes me gonna faint from cuteness!

Holy Cuteness
 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:14 AM

LOve this.

*sniff* Missin all my sweet ratties now...

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:16 AM

Awww..the blissful sleep of the well-loved and utterly spoiled!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:18 AM

Oh my goodness, adorable!!! I feel like this little guy today--time for a nap. The teddy bears are really just too much!

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:21 AM

As an owner of 4 ratty boys myself, I get fed up with people seeing them as the same as the wild, dirty "disease spreading" rats you find in the streets/sewers. This will hopefully show that fancy rats are completely different (very soppy) animals. They're more intelligent than people think too, can train them to do anything really!

I have never seen such a sweet photo-op of a rat.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:31 AM

Such a happy little rat. So cute.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:38 AM

OMG this owner is clearly abusing her rattie, forcing him to take all these naps where the rat is clearly sleeping because he can't stand the pain of living!! Augh!! *wildly flings puddin' everywhere all over the walls*

Oops, the xtreme kee-yuteness made me have a fit and 'splode.

*wanders off, licking pudding off fingers*

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:41 AM

i had no idea rats could be so snuggly... and the teddy bears?!? awesome.

 |  Feb 03, 2009 at 08:44 AM

Ratty Lover, aren't they pretty much exactly the same as the wild dirty ones, except that they're not wild or dirty? I mean, it's not like there's a big genetic difference, if there's any at all.
