Photographer Proves Rats Are The Most Adorable Creatures By Spending Years Capturing Them

Published 6 years ago

Diane Özdamar is a photographer who is trying to break the negative stereotype associated with rats by taking cute pictures of them. We’re sure that after seeing the photographer’s pictures, you’ll want to get a little pet rat yourself!

Diane says the rats are actually highly intelligent and love interacting with each other and their favorite humans: “They are far from being dirty nasty little monsters!” She describes them as very friendly, smart, and playful and even says that many rat owners compare them to tiny dogs.

The photographer made all the little accessories herself and made sure the rats can remove them easily. “No animals were harmed during the making of these pictures, the ladybug was also alive and well and flew away soon after the photo shooting,” said Diane.

She also encourages people to adopt rats as pets from local pet shelters, but before you do, Diane warns of one thing: “You must also adopt at least two rats of the same sex, rats absolutely need to have a friend from their own species.”

Check out the photographer’s pictures of these cute furry creatures in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
