Osiris and his buddy Riff Ratt are the cutest sensation on Instagram right now.  They are closer than any canine and rodent combo should be, but Riff Ratt was rescued as a baby, and Osiris is an excellent brother.  They are always hanging out together and giving each other sweet little smooches.

“This is super typical. Riff Ratt really likes licking the inside of Osiris’ mouth,” says their mom.  “I’m sure you all are wondering if we’re afraid Osiris will eat Riff – NOPE! Osiris has helped foster and care for dozens of animals and he is the gentlest dog I’ve ever met. See for yourself!”

“Osiris and #RiffRatt give each other ‘kisses’ all the time. Seeing them care for each other and have such an unexpected friendship gives me a tiny bit of hope for the rest of the creatures on this planet – especially humans. 🙂 Go out and be kind to someone (or everyone!) today. It feels really good!”

    • I also had a white rat (Whitey) and coon hound (Comanche) who were the best of friends. They would play hide and seek, and sleep with me at night. People don’t like rats, but they are the smartest and sweetest.

  1. Super cute! I wish people didn’t hate rats so much! They are highly intelligent, sweet little creatures. They are treated like trash and abused in labs. Maybe these pics will educate the public. Thanks for sharing!

    • Yes, they are intelligent! Fun fact: If you put a rat in the sink with water and soap, they will clean themselves just like a human….scrub a dub dub!
