A pet rat and a therapy dog have the cutest Instagram you’ve ever seen

A pet rat and a therapy dog have the cutest Instagram you’ve ever seen

That’s right, somewhere in Chicago a 3-year-old Dutch Shepard therapy dog named Osiris is happily playing with a 3-month-old pet rat named Riff Rat.

Street rats have terrible reputations in urban areas, leading many to write off the idea of pet rats entirely as unsanitary and incomprehensible. However, breeder-bought pet rats, like Riff Rat, are actually pretty sensible pets for cramped city apartments. Their cages don’t have to take up much floor space (most owners build their cages vertically, not horizontally), they spend most of their day cleaning themselves, and they keep themselves plenty occupied with cheap materials like cardboard tubes and empty tissue boxes.

Riff Rat and Osiris have proven themselves to be one of the most affectionate and trusting pairs ever caught on film—in several shots, Riff is shown placing almost his entire body inside Osiris’s mouth so that he can clean his pal’s teeth.

They snuggle, they play, they lick each other’s faces—what’s not to love?

“This is super typical. Riff Ratt really likes licking the inside of Osiris’ mouth. 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.”
