This is a video of the pets of a homeless guy in Santa Barbara. You can see these guys every week working State Street for donations. The animals, as you can see, are pretty well fed and mellow. They are a family. The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn’t have to walk so much (like the dog and himself). At some juncture, the rat came along and as no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding with the cat and often on the cat! The dog will stand all day and let you talk to him and admire him for a few chin scratches. The Mayor of Santa Barbara filmed this clip and sent it out as a Christmas card.
