There's nothing particularly unusual about Tate the rat ... except that her best friend happens to be a cat.
Tate and Pepper hang out all the time, but one day things were a little different - because Pepper was pregnant, and ready to bring her kittens into the world.
At first Tate was a little unsure of what was happening, and snuggled up to her friend to try and help her.
Tate even licked Pepper's face to calm her. What a good friend!
As soon as Tate realized what a good mama Pepper already was, she stopped helping, and snuggled up to enjoy the cuddly pile of new babies instead.
Soon, Tate started purring ... and decided that her true calling in life was to be a kitten.
We're guessing the new kittens will love their auntie rat just as much as their mom!
