Okay then, What Does this Emoji Look Like? 

After knowing all the probable meanings, this is an obvious question to follow. The emoji is grey with pink ears, tails, and feet. The feet of the rats are facing forward on most platforms. Some devices have made their rats look realistic enough to classify as an actual image, while some have kept them cute and animated. Mostly, all emojis look much less the same no matter what device or application they are on. Nonetheless, there are some slight customizations in each of them. 

The rat on Apple is quite realistic – the most realistic is fair to say. It generally looks big, with grey fur and a slight brown undertone. The tail is relatively long and the rat is sitting on all its four limbs; these two features and the ears are pink. Apple’s rival Samsung has a slightly different take on the emoji. While the posture and the angle remain similar to that of Apple’s, the overall design is much more animated and cartoon, with less detailing. 

It is a known fact that devices have different emoji keyboards. Similarly, so do different applications like WhatsApp, Twitter, and Facebook. WhatsApp’s rat is a front-facing rat with a big head and small body. It is also cartoony looking with additional features in pink. Meanwhile, Twitter’s emoji lacks detailing and it is just the outline of a rat filled in with grey. On Twitter, while the ears are pink, the tail is red. Facebook’s rat is white and is generally tall and has a smaller head.
