Not many people are fans of a rats. Every once in a while someone likes to keep them as a pet (and I have to admit, I find them adorable), but overall they are seen as pests, and usually have cats sent after them as soon as they’re spotted. All of that makes this especially magical. Tate is a rat who found herself a happy home, but curiously, it was also home to a cat named Pepper.

Pepper and Tate didn’t particularly get along at first, but that didn’t mean that Tate was in any danger. Then, Pepper gave birth to a litter of kittens, and Tate stepped up to help her. Tate immediately joined in all the cuddling that was happening with new kittens.

In these photos she can be seen clinging to the side of Pepper, who doesn’t seem to mind having the extra addition to the family one bit at all.
