This pet rat loves cuddling in a banana peel, and it’s the happy thing we need to see today

Rats have to deal with a lot of crap. People don’t like them, people think they’re gross, people are scared of them, and so on. But really, rats make super adorable pets, as made evidence by the cuddly little rat who only wanted to sleep inside a banana peel.

Lucy Baker, a 19-year-old student in London, posted photos on Twitter of her pet rat using a banana peel as a cuddly little sleeping bag.

We suppose, if you’re a rat, a banana peel is just as good a place as any to curl up for a snuggle or a mid-day nap. We all need to feel safe and cuddly sometimes, right?

Bonus points for making it look super freakin’ adorable.

Is this the next Pizza Rat? The next Pole-dancing rat? With more than 17,000 retweets, Baker’s furry companion certainly has viral potential.
