Welcome to RatChatter!
RatChatter came about by our love for rats. Please check out our About page for our story of how we became rat lovers.
A few years ago we started RatChatter with just a forum and now we have added this informational site as well. Our site is filled with wonderful articles all about pet rats. We are constantly adding to our site, so please check it often or join our forum and become a member of a fantastic rat community.
Want to know what types of foods your pet rat shouldn’t eat, then check out our Forbidden Foods page and print off a copy for reference.
Looking for that special cage for your little rattie, then check out our Choosing the Right Rat Cage article written by me, Mrs. Rattitude. Believe me, we have had plenty of rats over the years and all different types of cages. Please print a copy of the article to take with you to the pet store so you can choose the right rat cage. We will be putting more articles up in the near future about rat cages, so check back often.
Ok, so now you have the cage, so what do you put into it besides the rats? Check out our Rat Toys, Treats and more… pages to find how to make no sew hammocks…rat tents…and all kinds of nice inexpensive items your ratties will enjoy for hours on end.
Don’t know what color your rattie is or what the markings are..then check out our Rat Colors and Varieties pages to find out more about your pet rat.
Are you a Rat Rescue? Contact us to find out how to have you own full page on RatChatter to list all your rescue details and pictures.
Are you a Breeder? Contact us to find out how to have your details put on the Breeders List here at RatChatter.
Please check RatChatter often as we are constantly adding more articles and information to the site…and don’t forget to join us in the Forums…see you there.

Star’s Rat Rescue has over 143 ratties they rescued this week. They need our help, that’s a lot of ratties to take care of. You can donate via their website http://www.starsratrescue.com/donations.html. You can also purchase products and mail to them, email them off of their donations page for their mailing address.
Or you can order some hammocks and things for the cages through Jen’s Custom Crafts…
I’ve been in touch with Jenny from Jen’s Custom Crafts. Jenny has a program where she helps rescues. She gives you 25% off and free shipping if you order and ship her products directly to the rescue. You do have to order thorugh a special page where the items are currently 25% off of her regular store price. She’s added hammocks onto this page because that’s what Star’s Rat Rescue uses the most of in their cages. So please visit this link and order some hammocks for Star’s Rat Rescue. http://www.jenscustomcrafts.com/ourshop/cat_274477-Rescue-Donations.html
Also, from now through Tuesday June 1, 2010, Jenny will give you an additional 15% off of the “rescue store items”. When you go through checkout please use the code “take15″ in the “customer code” box on the checkout page. This will give you and exta 15% off…totally a whopping 40% off of regular store prices.
She has graciously set up Star’s Rat Rescue on her Rescue Donation page…she gives 10% of her sales to rescues. Since she already has a list going, Star’s Rat Rescue is listed for July 2011, please check the page here http://www.jenscustomcrafts.com/rescuedonationprogram.html

Star’s Rat Rescue has started a Rat Train…please see below and please feel free to cross post..
Star’s Rat Rescue is in need of the following:
If you can do all three that’s wonderful, but if you can only do 1 that’s wonderful too. Please help a rat find his/her forever home.
Please send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Location: (City and State)
Please let us know if you can adopt rats, if you can please list how many and the sex.
Please let us know if you can provide transportation, please list what cities/states you are willing to travel to, how many rats you can carry in your vehicle and when you are available for transport.
Please let us know if you can keep some rats for a short period of time, until the next transport is available and how many you can accommodate.
Please send the information to the above email, as we have someone co-ordinating the rat train for us and they will contact you shortly. Once we have all the information and if we have enough people to help, we will then work with the adopters so they can choose the rat they want. Adopters, we will have pictures for you at that time.
