    I love it! Every once in a while their eyes could light up red if they are in a cave near you? Maybe even have rarer plagued rats spawn. If one attacks you that has the plague you contract it and occasionally take damage for a period of time. You would have to avoid villages to keep it from spreading or maybe hand deliver it to those pesky, no good pillagers! Maybe make milk/honey cure it to give them another use? Tame rats could fetch dropped items for you in a certain area and put them into your inventory/nearby chests?

    Not a bad idea on the plague part, but I am not sure if Minecraft is quite ready for a disease mechanic. It would be interesting though.

    I have loved the idea of contagious potion effects, and rats could be a good example of mobs that can naturally spawn with and be immune to those effects
