OSHKOSH (WLUK) -- The Oshkosh Area Humane Society says it's looking for a forever home that will welcome an unlikely group of furry friends.

Jack, a sight-impaired cat, Sasha, a young dog and Tweaks, a senior rat, all came to OAHS together March 1.

And while you may not think those animals could co-exist peacefully, staff say the pets share a very close bond.

The staff have even nicknamed the trio the "Rat Pack."

“These three are just amazing to watch, how they interact and how they all just get along so well. Tweaks always wants to play with Sasha. How often do you see a dog and a rat play together? They bring out one another’s unique personalities,” said executive director, Joni Geiger.

While staff would like to see all three adopted together, they do require Jack and Sasha to stay together as Jack is emotionally dependent on Sasha.

“And for anyone that is leery about adopting a rat, I would urge you to come and meet Tweaks. Hands-down one of friendliest, sweetest rats we’ve ever had," Geiger said.

You can visit Jack, Sasha and Tweaks at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society.
