Since the opening of Ratatouille in England, pet rats have become more popular than ever. In fact, Britain's Pets at Home chain said sales have skyrocketed 50 percent since the film premiered there on October 12! Many rodents, especially rats, get a bad rap despite their high levels of intelligence and trainability. While I certainly don't think movies should prompt people to adopt any pets, I do like to see maligned animals get a chance to shine in the public eye. I'm curious to know how you feel – share with me in your comments below!
