Rat CANNOT Get Enough Snuggles From Her Favorite Person

Prepare yourself for your daily "aww ..."

A video, posted by a freelance digital artist on YouTube, is an anomaly among other clips that show her artistic process, often in time-lapse - but it's obviously too good a moment not to post.

"Alright, so this isn't art but happened while arting!" Val Morrey (YouTube user Yankee Doodles) wrote. The rat, named Slushie, is only 9 weeks old, the color of champagne and was "too cute for me not to give her some pets and see if I can finally film her!"

Slushie is a prominent member of the family, which includes her humans, another pet rat and a couple of dogs.

"Friends are horrified when we say we have rats, but one we introduce them to Slushie and show how clean and loving rats can be they quickly sing a different tune!" Morrey told The Dodo. "She loves being cuddled and more so when you give her bananas."

Morrey points out that even though rats are unfortunately given a bad reputation, she's in love: "One of our dogs absolutely adores them and they sleep together when we're supervising."

And she's totally right. Rats are remarkable little creatures who can feel empathy and regret. But anyone who's ever met a snuggly rat already knows that.

As for Slushie's beautifully snuggly moment, caught on camera, the unexpected music choice makes for kind of a trippy experience, so watch the full, relatively hypnotizing, video below:
