Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the ingredients for the bodies and shape into 4 little rat-shaped loaves on a baking sheet. Shape them to a point (the nose) in the front and rounded in the back. Bake for 45 minutes in preheated oven or until desired doneness. While meatloaf is baking, cut 8 coins (circles for rat ears) from the carrots. Use the remaining carrots to make 4 long, thin strips for tails. Steam the circles and strips until they are crisp and tender. Do not overcook! Cut little slits in each loaf for ears near the pointed end, and place carrot coins in them for ears. Make a tiny slit in the rounded wide end for the tail and place a carrot strip in it for the tail. Use the raisins for the eyes. Break the uncooked spaghetti noodles into pieces and place around the "nose" (pointed end) for whiskers. Heat the spaghetti sauce and place a large spoonful of sauce on a plate. Place a meatloaf rat on top of the spaghetti sauce and serve.
