Playful Rat Gets WAY Too Worked Up In A Rousing Game Of Peek-A-Boo With His Human

Rats definitely aren’t the most common pets to have. In fact, many people are deathly afraid of them. Even more people just don’t see the appeal of keeping what could be considered vermin as a household pet.

Anyone who’s ever had a pet rat can tell you that there are a lot of misconceptions around these furry friends. They were reviled in the Dark Ages as carriers of the plague (it was the fleas, not the rats themselves, that carried plague) and wild rats can be aggressive. But when given a loving home from the start, they can become sweet and amusing companions!

The video below features one rat who sure knows how to charm his human. In the video, a girl is playing peek a boo with her rat. The little creature gets so excited by the game, that he starts to flip out–in the cutest of ways!

Every time she hides her face, he scrambles about trying to get a glimpse of her. And when she pops her face out again, he bounces around in glee! This is definitely the cutest video we’ve seen all day.
