When I first saw a link to this story on the blog Peoplepets, I wondered if it didn’t refer to the stuffed white rat that the Brooklyn Cat Cafe on Atlantic Avenue has long used (see photo) as a cat toy. It turns out, though, that the Cafe has obtained two live rats, named Emile and Remy, from an organization called Helping All Little Things Animal Rescue, and put them to work as “nannies” for some orphaned infant kittens. Does it work? See the videos.
