Stop demonizing us

I chose this photo of my rat because he and his kind are demonized. Rats are known for causing the plague, being nasty, and being violent. Some of that is true, some is not. “Rats are capable of feeling regret about their own actions, an emotion that has never previously been found in any other mammals apart from humans.”. They are also much clearer than cats, they don’t like to be dirty and will clean each other. I strongly believe rats are very special creatures and they should be normalized as pets and not for what they are “known” for.
