People Are Dressing Up Their Pet Rats in Dresses and Fancy Hats

For the Fancy Rat Convention in New York this weekend, rodents walked in a fashion show wearing outfits by pet-clothing designer Ada Nieves. "Making clothes for chihuahuas is not much different from making clothes for rats," Nieves explains to the camera as a squirming rat licks her arm. "Humanizing an animal makes it easier for us to bond [with them]. Now we can use this to advocate for animals." Because dressing vermin in lacy veils is totally the seasonal alternative to making coats out of them.
