Rowling Rat Love

HARRY Potter writer JK Rowling has revealed her daughter Jessica, 12, shares a love of rats with Harry’s pal Ron Weasley.

The author admitted she also has a soft spot for the creatures.

She said: “My daughter keeps a pair of rats and I’m quite happy to let them sit on my shoulder.”

Rupert Grint, who plays Ron in the films, was so fond of the rat who played his pet Scabbers, he took it -and a stunt rat – home.
