Two Women Take Adorable Pictures of Rats With Teddy Bears
This started around 2008 when two unrelated women – Jessica Florence and Ellen van Deelen – started taking adorable pictures of their beloved pet rats posing with miniature teddy bears. Five years later, these adorable pics are still travelling around the Internet. They went viral on imgur a few days ago, however not many know the story behind them.
A simple Google search takes us to Jessica Florence‘s Flickr account, where the first pictures of her rats – Bug, Duck and Worm – were posted at the very end of 2007. Interestingly, Ellen van Deelen joined Redbubble at about the same time and started publishing and selling cute images of her rats – Moppy, Witje and Rosie. Although the women seem to be unrelated – Ms Florence is from Great Britain and Ellen van Deelen is a Netherlands-based photographer. Here are the cute pictures we have managed to collect.
The first bunch are by Jessica Florence followed by Ellen Van Deelen. We also gathered some pictures from other people who took pictures of their pet rats.
