If you get asked what a rat’s favourite food is, it’s safe to say spaghetti wouldn’t immediately spring to mind.

But a video of a cute critter, uploaded by his owner Maaike, tucking into the comfort food favourite has taken the internet by storm.

Tiny rat, Baby, looks like he’s having the time of his life as he lounges on his owner’s lap in a tangle of spaghetti before going in for a munch, holding it in his tiny paws just like it’s a baguette.

The video of the pet, who lives in the Netherlands, is incredibly soothing to watch, which may explain why it’s gone viral.
