Rats sometimes get a bad rap. Okay, so a lot of them are filthy, carry diseases, and are a tolerated plague in New York City. But they can also be very clean, highly intelligent, and incredibly cute pets. Those who own rats know this, but Abby Roeser has decided to showcase her pet rats for the world to see.

We’re introduced to her rats Pepper, Blue, and Puffin. We follow her and her pets as she demonstrates what they are like. How they groom constantly, are quite playful and affectionate, and smart enough to figure out basic commands, problems, and even obstacle courses! They are also rather cute. Especially when Pepper plays basketball.
