VIDEO: There Was A Convention For People Who Like Pet Rat Fashion Shows

If you were turned off by owners dressing their cats up to look like Edward Cullen or Elizabeth Taylor, get ready to gag out at this video from the NYC Fancy Rat Convention, with presentations by breeders and a rats-only runway show. FYI, this is not an SNL parody. Really. You couldn't pay us to go into this room, where it looks like paintings and sculptures of rodents (uh, check the watercolor of a fairy petting a giant rat) are on display along with the real life creatures dressed in colorful prints. We love the woman trying to insist, "He's a rat," as if we wouldn't believe her. (DNAinfo)
