CHICAGO — Adorable animal friendships are thoroughly documented on Instagram, but this odd couple in Chicago caught our eye.
Osiris, a 3-year-old Dutch Shepherd mix, and Riff Ratt, a 3-month-old fancy rat are “best friends,” according to their Instagram account @osirisandriff.
In their photos they snuggle nose-to-nose, share toys and act totally silly (see the photo below of Riff Ratt inside Osirsis’ mouth!)
The pair only has 2,600 followers, but since their pics were featured on Mashable.com, we expect their follower count to shoot through the roof.
WGN reached out to the pets’ human on Instagram, but has yet to hear back. Here are just a few of their super sweet Instagram photos:

This is super typical. Riff Ratt really likes licking the inside of Osiris' mouth. I'm sure you all are wondering if we're afraid Osiris will eat Riff – NOPE! Osiris has helped foster and care for dozens of animals and he is the gentlest dog I've ever met. See for yourself!
