Many people find rats repulsive but squirrels, hamsters, and gerbils cute.

It’s gotta be the hair. “Ratty” is a synonym for coarse and unruly hair - but squirrels have big fluffy tails and hamsters have soft smooth pelts in variety of colors.

Sadly, rats have no money so this wouldn’t work for direct sales. Primary customers of the Hair Club For Rats would probably be unscrupulous pet shop owners who wish to pass off a rat as a Filigree Siberian Hamster (link).

       God, I wish I would have thought of this. It's so in my wheelhouse. Yay for the ratty rats in the world. Tiny toupees it is.

       They just need another name and the disguise would be complete. Something exotic sounding like Moroccan Were-Gerbils.

       No, it must sound cute. Welsh Fluffwobbles?

       We could pour loads of shampoo and conditioner down the sewers so the rats can at least make a start. A bit of creative virement from the fat-berg clearing budget should fund it.

       //Virement//
Now there's a word I haven't encountered for a few years!

       Definition of virement   

       : an administrative transfer of budgetary funds   

       (I'm saving time for those bakers, like me, who had no clue what that word meant. You may thank me later somehow.)
