There’s an unspoken rule that if you put a hat on any animal, it’s automatically adorable (see: Trotter, the Californian bulldog). There’s also the universally accepted truth that everything is cuter in a miniature size. So what happens when these two factors are combined? We'd like to introduce you to the Rats in Hats Tumblr, an explosion of tiny rodent adorableness.

The Tumblr features charming snapshots of all rodent varieties wearing everything from polka-dotted party hats to festive reindeer antlers.

Haven’t you ever wanted to put a sombrero on a gerbil or a Santa hat on a mouse? We sure have! That's exactly why we've become huge fans of these rats in mini hats. Check out our favorites below.
