Chris and his pet rat Lucy live on the streets of Sydney, Australia, and have become a familiar sight for pedestrians and commuters all over the city. The pair are both incredibly friendly and sweet, and it isn’t hard to tell even just by passing by how much they genuinely love each other.
“Almost every day since I started my job in the city Chris and his pet rat Lucy have sat in the same spot, Chris chatting to passersby and Lucy happily munching, sleeping and looking on,” Alyson Pearce wrote on a GoFundMe page for Chris and Lucy. “They are a feature of Sydney city life and I have always smiled when I see them and felt glad they had each other.”
Everyone took for granted that the pair would always be there — until one day, Chris was spotted without his beloved Lucy.
