Our heartfelt thanks to all who have supported us throughout the year, be it
with appreciative comments for our website or with orders from our store.

Robyn, Alan, Isabelle and Sophie
and our giant furry cat, Beaumont.

Are your rats as happy and comfortable as Scrambler and Grub?

Every rat needs a hammock!

Somewhere comfortable and safe to snooze.
A dark place to hide away from bright daylight.
A warm and cosy place to bundle up with friends.
Or a private haven to be alone for awhile.

We have a large range of hammock styles, colours and sizes to suit your rats (or mice!):

Rat hammocks

Much loved by The Dapper Rats for over 12 years.

Emails:   I answer all email orders within 24 hours on business days.  So if you haven't heard back from me, please check your spam folder for my reply, or contact me again in case your email hasn't reached me.

I'm sorry I've been unable to answer rat questions on email lately. With two young kids and running my business I simply don't have the spare time to answer all of the emails I receive each day.  If you have a rat question, contact ratinfo (for general rat care questions) or rathelp (for urgent rat medical questions).  Or consider joining the ratlist where you can chat with other rat owners and ask as many questions as you like.
