Ellen Van Deeler is not only a great photographer, but she is also a lover of rats. You may have just said “yuck” under your breath and I don’t blame you. Many of the world has had quite the stigma with rats for a very long time. There are a lot of people in the world who actually do love rats though. Rats are very kind and smart creatures who probably have a bad reputation for no real reason at all. Well this photographer just loves rats and hopes to shed a little light on the misconception with rats by taking photos of them in various settings. Check out these adorable pictures of rats cuddling with teddy bears.
While I absolutely despise rodents, I have to admit that a rat snuggling with a teddy bear is kind of cute, in a gross, creepy crawly kind of way.
She takes photos of rats in very adorable settings.
It’s amazing that the rats just sit there for her and pose.

Look at its little fingers holding onto that teddy bear as tight as it can.

Alright, maybe rats are kind of cute, but I won’t be running out to buy one anytime soon.

This one is having sweet dreams of tormenting people at night, I’m sure of it.
I cannot get over how cute these are. I never thought I’d say this about rats, but these pictures of rats are so adorable. This has completely given me a new outlook on them. What a bunch of cuddly sweeties! The pictures are adorable, but it may be true that Ellen Van Deeler has a small obsession with rats. Has this changed your perception of rats too?
