This could be the bounciest, most excited rat you'll ever see!

A video, uploaded a few years ago, shows a girl as she plays peek-a-boo with her adorable pet rat. And the furry little guy couldn't get any more excited!

Each time she covers her face with her hands to hide, he just can't wait to see her again.

And every single time she pulls her hands away, he starts freaking out!

"Are you still there?"

"Oh my goodness, you are, you are, you are, you are, you are!"

Despite the fact that most people aren't particularly fond of rodents, rats do make amazing pets- they're very smart, sweet, and, as the video below shows, a whole lot of fun to play with.

Take a look at the adorable video below to see the entire bouncy experience, right down to the rat snuggle session during the game. And if this delightful video tempts you to go out and get a rat of your very own, remember, look into adoption first.


Isn't he just the cutest little thing?! I didn't realize that they could be so adorable!

And if that wasn't enough to prove just how precious rats can be, here's a video of a rat eating spaghetti! 

Evidently, rats do make wonderful pets! They're very smart. They love to be loved, and of course they are unbelievably cute. And just like any other pets, they often wind up in shelters. So if you think you'd like to adopt one yourself, visit
