If you put a dog, cat and rat together in the same room, most people would expect chaos to ensue, because that is what cartoons have been teaching us since the beginning of time. But Sasha the dog, Jack the cat and Tweaks the rat recently turned up at the Oshkosh Area Humane Society (OAHS) in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, and the three of them are surprisingly best friends. The trio of otherwise sworn natural foes were brought to the shelter by their owner at the beginning of March.

"They had to downsize their home, and they weren't able to take the three animals with them, so they brought them here," Cheryl Rosenthal, communications and education coordinator at OAHS, told The Dodo. "A lot of people would say, 'Why would you do that?' But not every place will accept pets, let alone three of them."

Upon their arrival at OAHS, the animals had to get medical examinations and Jack was first in line. But when they got him in the examination room, his became frightened and not very cooperative. Someone from the staff suggested to bring Sasha in and that changed the scared kitty’s behavior. Jack relaxed because he knew his buddy was right there for him.

After seeing how closely bonded Jack and Sasha were, and with the owner telling staff that the three all got along well, the shelter staff knew they had to keep them in the same enclosure.

The Rat Pack, as they are lovingly known, found their forever home with Kathy Berens and her daughter.
