That’s right not one skinny model is walking down the runway at this show. Just rats with some interesting steps.
We have done articles on rats before, but we haven’t seen a rat fashion show before, esp. one in NYC. These rats want to take a bite out of the big apple and leave people with a lasting impression.
Dozens of furry rat lovers gathered together for the event at the world’s First Fancy Rat Convention. Ada Nieves is also attending the show with her array of clothes that are created for rats and rat owners everywhere.
Her creations are available as tuxes, wedding dresses, bridesmaids gowns, and other amazing rat apparel. They run about eighty dollars an outfit and include all the bells and whistles such as beads, feathers and other small tidbits.
Rats are a common pet these days and clothing makes them much more presentable to those not in love with rats then they would be otherwise.
Rat owners state that these pets are amazing animals to own. That they have super personalities, they are smart and a better alternative to a ferret. They are sociable and can be taught a variety of tricks including fetch.
Learn Something Fun: Rat fancy as a formal, organized hobby began when a woman named Mary Douglas asked for permission to bring her pet rats to an exhibition of the National Mouse Club at the Aylesbury Town Show in England on October 24, 1901. Her black and white hooded rat won "Best in Show," and ignited interest in the area.
