Rats definitely have a reputation as filthy scavengers, but these pictures of cute rats are here to prove there's a lot more to these little guys than the negative stereotype suggests. As it turns out, rats make excellent pets and can be a lot of fun to share your home with. Rats actually hate being dirty; they're pristine little groomers, and even love to arrange their food into neat piles. 

As you may be able to tell from some of the cute rat photos collected here, rats are also incredibly intelligent. No wonder scientists prefer to use them as lab assistants. They are also very social creatures who make lifelong bonds with their owners.

These adorable rat pictures might just change your mind about one of nature's most feared, but misunderstood, animals.
