Rats are people too!


I recently got to play with these adorable rats on the set of Vamps! I know that they are not people in the sense that they are not of our species…but they are super cute and they are such fascinating little creatures. I love that they have five fingers like ours – five fingers on their hind legs and four on the front. They are so sweet when they lick and clean themselves! They deserve respect and should not be harmed.


The blog Vegan Peace provides some great introductory information about different species of rats and how their communities work. They are very social creatures who have important lives to lead. We should let them do that.
