I've decided to create this site because I have finally come to terms with the fact that my life is exceptionally rat-centric. I started Rattie Ratz in 1998 and incorporated it into a 501(c)3 in 2001. I co-founded TheRatshop.com with my then husband in 2002. I make and sell my own rat grain mix and I trained with Debbie Ducommun. I'm very active in rat rescue and I am always investigating and testing out great things for our beloved companions. Yes, I do have a lot of experience and no, I do not know everything there is to know about domestic pet rats! This new adventure is just to give me a place to share my knowledge, experiences, and opinions with other enthusiasts that might care. I hope you enjoy exploring this venture as much as I enjoy creating it!
