This selfie posted to Twitter recently has received a LOT of attention recently after some keen eyed folks noticed something lurking in the background.

Can you see it? Take a closer look.

Still can’t see it? How about now?

Yep, among this woman’s incredibly messy floor is a real life RAT!


The Twitter user named Alyssa has seen her image re-tweeted thousands of times with debate raging over why anyone would share such a messy room with the world.

We’re just wondering if the rat was heading to munch on the nearby marshmallows before taking a sip out of her soft drink?

Cheeky Alyssa has since set up a crowd-funding page and wants the public to donate $10,000 so she can quit her second job and clean her room.

Writing on the GoFundMe page, which has since been deleted, she said:

“Many of you have expressed concerns with the state of my apartment,” 


“I hear them. However, being an adult with adult expenses, it is sometimes difficult to find time to give attention to less pressing needs. I have a full time job and a part time job, and I attend college full time.

“For those of you who don’t attend college full time, that’s 40 hours + 20 hours + [(1 hour per class x 2 times per week) x 4 classes per semester] = 68 hours per week.

“I won’t even add into that equation time spent studying, eating, or sleeping; however, those are necessary components of many human lives, mine included.

“This new internet fame I have encountered has given me a unique opportunity to make the most of my time. If I reach my goal ($10,000 = 1 year of tuition at my school), I will quit my second job and devote my life to cleanliness.”

Ms Borderlon tweeted the link to the GoFundMe page to her followers.


“Pay My Tuition & I’ll Clean My Room. A worthy cause if I’ve ever seen one,” she wrote.
