. Bug. I'm loving the fact that I've changed a few peoples opinions about rats with my photos of Bug. Rats are such lovely animals, they're so misunderstood. I have had three rats all in all, and each one has been totally different. Bug thinks she's human, I'm sure of it. She acts like a baby and I treat her like mine. In my opinion, they're just as good pets as cats and dogs.
What a cute idea! Take an old suitcase (scrounge out fantastic vintage leather ones art flea markets/garage sales and EBay) and turn it into a pet bed!! Depending on size, cover a regular bed-pillow, or find a dog pillow that will fit. If none of those work, make a simple pillow to fit, stuff with filler from craft store.
