Cutest Knit/Crochet Ever

February 25, 2008 at 4:56 pm 18 comments

My friend Donna in Atlanta, who is also wishing spring would just hurry up and get here, sent me this pic and I just had to share it with you. This is a friend of Donna’s pet rat Annabell modeling her new spring outfit. (Click for enlargement) Just. Too. Cute.
UPDATE: Annabell needs your vote. Check Donna’s comment below.

    Aw, so cute! The hat is too much, lol! I never thought a rat could wear a hat. You learn something new everyday, I guess!

      Let me know if you post photos of your rat dressed up. I’d love to see them.

    So cute I have a pet rat and I have wanted a hat for her where did she get the hat?

    oh my – what a lovely lady Annabel is to let someone dress her up…she must be quite a patient rat. My two rats, Harriet and Eloise, wouldn’t last two seconds in a hat! Love this picture!

    Pardon me, but the rat in the picture isn’t alive… It is a taxidermy or stuffing of a dead rat. You can tell by the colourless (supposed to be pink) nose and feet, and oh I don’t know, the fact that the tail and feet aren’t planted on the ground? Also, living
    rats cannot bend/lift their tails in the way the rat in the picture is.

    Clever satire with the outfit, yet sickening at the same time.

      wow – of course its a real rat not all rats have pink feet. mine looks the same. you have problems

        This comment is correct. I have studied animal husbandry and specialised in fancy rats for over ten years; the rat in this photograph is not alive. Many live rats do tolerate being costumed though.

    That is so cut!We have been trying to dress our 3 but they slink out of the clothes lol.

    • 14. phaskins  |  December 20, 2009 at 8:10 pm

      I agree, Annabell is adorable.

  • 15. maggie  |  July 6, 2010 at 7:32 pm

    so cute!!! If I ever get a rat maybe I’ll try to dress her up.

  • 16. Ratter  |  July 28, 2010 at 4:34 pm

    It is a stuffed rat, as in taxidermy. It is a real rat but dead and stuffed. Missy, you have problems perhaps blindness?? If you have a rat I would be very surprised if they could possibly sit like that especially in the open!

    My mom said that I couldn’t dress up my rats. And it would mighty hard to get them to go willingly into one of those.

  • 18. Razzy  |  April 14, 2012 at 5:16 pm

    Does anybody know where I can get a pattern for this or at least close to it? I am a new knitter and my brother has a rat that would look so cute in it! Thank you! :3
