Who says that cats and dogs get to have all the fun? Meet Martin “Marty” Mouse, an adorable rodent whose big personality means a lot of adventures. Don't let the name fool you, though. He's actually a dumbo rat! Mouse is just part of his name. According to his owner, MM (Marty's Mom), he has many interests, including a band called Marty and the Corms and dispensing advice under his Ask Dr. Marty column.
Sadly, this charming, photogenic creature passed away on November 20 of this year. Thanks to social media, however, his spirit lives on through Facebook and Instagram. “He's found an Internet connection in Heaben so he can still talk to us,” MM writes. Which is a good thing – it means we can continue to share our joy in his rodent-sized shopping cart, miniature chef's hat, and love of a good donut.
