Update for November 2016: He’s doing great, very confident little guy! Very responsive to his name and I can now scoop him up on my dressing gown to get him back in his cage. Still not a big fan of being stroked but he happily tolerates it when been fed a fruit smoothie! Hope you enjoy the pictures and video.


Looking for individual homes. These wonderful boy ratties were dumped loose (open cardboard box) along with 60-70 other rats, they were in terrible condition, Allan and Steve were covered in rat bites and wounds, all three (Alan, Steve and Billy) /have hair loss due to mal nourishment and neglect. Quite frankly they were broken in body and spirit, for those who know and love Fancy rats this is simply heart breaking. BUT after medical attention and TLC they are in much better condition and are much happier in themselves!

Steve is of adult age. He too will come to you for food, I can now stroke him sometimes and he chooses to climb all over me so he’s definitely coming round, when he’s out of his cage the door is left open and he pops back in whenever he feels like it as opposed to making him. He loves being out and his character is shining through now; he’s a cheeky little monkey!

They need child free homes and ideally no other pets unless they are not the kind to pay attention to the rats. Please do not buy a cage before you’ve spoken to us, they must have large metal cages as opposed to wire cages and glass tanks. Ideally we’re looking for people who have owned rats before. Please click here for Rat Welfare.

We can only imagine the horrendous life they’ve had up until now…now they are living like Kings! They are extra special and deserve the best of rattie havens!

He will require a sizeable cage and not of mesh design. Minimum size accommodation is H70 x D48 x W78cm, however, the bigger the better so he can climb and explore.  The flooring/shelving that they walk on must be solid (i.e. not mesh) and there must be plenty of  enrichment in the cage, e.g. hammocks, climbing ropes/ladders, houses/huts and opportunities to forage for food, also plenty of time in the evenings out of his cage to interect.  If you would like to adopt any of these rats we will provide further information to you on how the adoption process works.

RSPCA log no. 3253 19/7/16
