Thanks to the Internet, animal photography has been blowing up, and the level of cuteness is sometimes too much for us -- even when it comes to rat photography.
Who knew rats could be so cute? Otherwise depicted as tiny warm vertebrae, these little rats prove to have a softer side to them. These photographs were taken by Jessica Florence and Ellen van Deelen; some feature rats accompanied with tiny teddy bears while others depict a rat cozy and asleep under a little blanket. These photos might make you want to head down to the closest pet store and pick up a few rats to snuggle up with.
Maybe, like most people, you never thought rats could be so precious, but this series gives rats a new persona, and makes your heart melt at the same time.
