The old beliefs that dogs, cats and rats can’t stand the sight of each other have just been put down by this very particular trio: a dog, cat and a rat that have been friends for a long time in their previous home and had to be taken to a shelter literally can’t be apart from each other.
Jack the cat, Sasha the dog and Tweaks the rat lived with a loving family that unfortunately couldn’t continue to look after them, so they took them to the Oshkosh Area Humane Society in Wisconsin, and insisted that if they were to be adopted, they should stick together. The staff at the shelter wasn’t so sure but after seeing how nervous the animals got when they were without one another, they realized how close they were.
Although it seemed difficult to find a new home for Jack, Sasha and Tweaks, a woman named Kathy Berens stepped in. At first, Kathy wasn’t so sure about Tweaks because she never had a pet rat before, but upon meeting the trio, she was more than sold! The three now are able to remain best friends forever in a new loving home that accepts them as they are.
