Rats are known to make an appearance on the subways tracks of New York City, but now they’re making an appearance in an extremely unlikely place.
Rodents hit the runway at last month’s NYC Fancy Rat Convention, showing people “how beautiful they are,” according to one of the event’s organizers. Pet fashion designer (yes, that is a real job) Ada Nieves said, “Rats are very popular these days and the owners love to dress them up.” Nieves also said rats “enjoy wearing her outfits,” which can be purchased for about $80.
I’d hate to see what happens when a rat gets pissed about the fact that they’re wearing tulle, sequins and feathers.

Dance Recital Rat
I’ll be the first to admit that I loved Stuart Little and think this little animated (read: NOT REAL) rat is super cute, but fashion shows for rats? That’s just a little much.
What do you think about this newest form of fashion?
