Showing the world just how charming rats are!
 


What's new:
  Updated 17 September 2014

The Dapper Rat on holidays!
The Dapper Rat store will be closed from 18th Sep - 6th Oct for the school holidays.
I'm sorry for any inconvenience.





Robyn's Ramble

It is with a very heavy heart that I announce we are currently without rats in our lives.  Our last rat, Wombat, recently passed on - we miss him and his furry friends so much.  We will definitely have rats again some day in the future as I can't imagine life without them!  In the meantime, I will continue to run The Dapper Rat website and store, and also be involved with our local rat club and forums. And do some rat sitting for friends... I need to be able to squish some rats occasionally!

The Dapper Rat store is still open!
Rats everywhere are in need of warm, cosy, colourful hammocks to snooze in, and other fun things!

Emails:   I answer all email orders within 24 hours.  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.
