12 photos of rats with teddy bears that will make you go “awww”

Internet and its virality are still a mystery to us. The photos we are showing you today have been published for the first time in 2008, but went viral on imgur just last week.

We are talking about some of the most adorable kind of photography we’ve seen in a long time: the authors are two women, Jessica Florence and Ellen van Deelen, who began publishing photos of their rats holding mini teddy bears almost at the same time, between 2007 and 2008.

These two photographers are apparently unrelated, as Jessica is from UK and Ellen is from Netherlands, but the fact they started to publish this kind of pictures at the same time is quite peculiar.

Enjoy our favorite selection of their adorable photography in the gallery below (more of their work is available on Jessica’s Flickr and website and on Ellen’s Redbubble).

If you like this post, don’t be selfish, share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter.
