Today is a “memorial monday” for me, here’s an old picture of my first two rats being wonderful. I miss them every day!

Just wanted to say, I recently amassed more followers here on tumblr than all the watchers I have on DA after being on that site for 8 years. That’s really amazing to me, I truly feel so flattered. Thank you to everyone who shows interest and support in what I do, it definitely makes me feel appreciated and inspired to keep it up. I hope what I do makes you smile or feel happy in return.

Launching of a London Rat Cafe! - London Dungeon creates quirky cafe where customers can drink with rats in a bid to remodel their image.

London Dungeon – an enclave of spooky corridors and shock-tactic exhibits which looks at the darker side of the history of the capital city – is celebrating the opening of its Rat Café, and with it, the chance for guests to enjoy a nice mug of ‘Ratuccino’ or a slice of ‘Black Forest Rateux’. 

Health and safety officials will be relieved to hear that neither food nor drink at the Rat Café includes rats as genuine ingredients – but willing guests can, if they so choose, enjoy both while the little creatures dash about the room, or even sit on their shoulders.

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.’

‘Our café lets people get even closer, handle them, stroke them and really get to know them.’

Although the Rat Café was a one-off for a group of rat-loving guests, London Dungeon is considering making the idea a regular event.

‘Judging by first reactions, this pop-up rat café could become a regular date on the eccentric things to do calendar,’ Mr Hywel says.

I am going to go there!

Where we should have lunch on a Vulture trip to London. 

I want to goooo ;3;

How do your plush deers stand? Do you put wire in the legs, or? Btw I love your blog! And your rats are so cute, can't believe people think they're gross!!

It is always a personal goal of mine to design my plush to be capable of standing up with no hard parts for optimal cuddliness and safety for people of all ages.

I designed my deer plush to stand with no wires or hard parts, the legs are simply stuffed densely enough and sewn in such a way that they don’t need any additional support. It’s just a matter of being mindful of weight distribution vs. plush size that comes along with a lot of plush making experience :)

Also, thank you for the compliment on my rats. A lot of the photos I share on here nowadays are of other people’s babies, since my room is a bit too dark to take as many nice photos as I did in the past, but I try to throw some pics of my boys up here once in awhile! Hopefully in part to change those people who arbitrarily dislike rats’ minds. :)
