Royals counted cross stitch chart
Presenting a Rat King and their Queen. Rat kings are an actual but rare phenomena wherein several rats become entangled by their tails. Depending on how tangled and how cooperative the rats are, the condition may or may not be eventually fatal. Fortunately these rats seem only to be loosely twisted up, and apparently enjoying each other’s company and the flowers from their field. A smaller chart is also included for the Rat Queen.
