About Healing Whiskers

Hi, I'm Abby Chesnut and this is Vincent the therapy rat. We visit many places like schools and libraries teaching others about rats and how they can benefit others as therapy animals.

Healing Whiskers is a hub for information about therapy rats as well as a place for us to share our adventures. We started this blog in 2016 and started visiting with Oliver the therapy rat in 2017.


Follow us from basket training to visiting with college students!
