Links and Site Map
Fancy Rats is a very large forum based in the UK. The forum is a lively community made up of hundreds of very active members and a total membership of thousands.
There are many articles about rats, product reviews, a nationwide rescue and rehoming board, a breeders directory and a web-directory of useful rat-related websites.
The site exists to promote rats as pets and to improve the lives of rats by supporting and educating the people who keep them.

Shops we highly recommend
ratRations.com - enormous range of products, grains, seeds, dried vegetables, herbs etc. Buy individual straights mix ingredients, mixes of dried insects or complete dry mixes for your rats. Excellent site, shop keepers extremely helpful and bend over backwards to please. We buy all our food and vitamin supplements from ratRations.com
Betty's Beds Hammocks - the hammocks are strong, beautifully designed, often quirky and inexpensive and my rats don't chew them, which is a bonus as my rats chew everything! The range of hammocks is much greater at the stalls they have at shows than on the website. Lovely shop keepers that are always willing to help out and make to order. We buy nearly all our hammocks from Betty's Beds.
