Meet ‘Coffee Rat,’ NYC’s newest viral subway dweller

Nothing can get between New Yorkers and their morning coffee – and apparently, this even extends to the city’s rat population. 

New York City’s “Pizza Rat” went viral in 2015 and since then, other rats have been seen carrying slices, but now, Twitter user Melissa Walker has posted a video of a rat carrying a coffee cup while waiting for the 3 train in Brooklyn.  

Walker shared a video of the rat carrying a cup across a subway platform on Twitter Wednesday. “Made my whole day!!” she captioned the video, which she noted was taken at the Franklin Avenue station. 

She deemed the little creature #coffeerat. And now, like Pizza Rat before it, Coffee Rat has gone viral.
