Rats in the News - The Rat Cafe

I was at the London Dungeons as a teenager on a high-school trip to England. I would love to go back and see this. I especially love that they are not using the rats here as objects of horror, but are making an attempt to correct their reputation: 

Although this unusual form of catering is largely for fun, there is also a mildly serious point to it – an attempt to rehabilitate the image of a much-maligned creature.

‘Rats have been tarnished with an undeserved reputation throughout history – from the Black Death of the Middle Ages to the great stink of Victorian times,’ says Hywel Mathias of London Dungeon.

‘We wanted to challenge those perceptions and show they are actually characterful and full of fun.’
