This is a short video of a homeless man in Santa Barbara and his pets.
They work State Street every week for donations.
The animals are pretty well fed and are mellow. They are a family.
The man who owns them rigged a harness up for his cat so she wouldn't have to walk so much (like the dog and himself).
At some juncture the rat came along, and as no one wanted to eat anyone else, the rat started riding often on the cat!
The dog will stand all day and let you admire him for a few chin scratches.

Dog, a Cat and a Rat and one enlightened human!
