A new Rattery based in East Lothian, Scotland Breeding Siamese, Black and Mink in Dumbo and Top Ear
Novella Rats are awaiting registration with the National Fancy Rat Society (NFRS). This is expected to occur in summer 2022.
The NFRS maintains a list of its studs and ratteries as a convenience but doesn't endorse any stud, rattery or member. Therefore it accepts no responsibility for any rats, including rescues, homed by me.
About Me My name is Emma and I am the human behind Novella Rats. I got my first rats, Berry and Bru, in October 2020, ignorantly from Pets at Home. They were missexxed, nervous and scared. It took getting more rats from an NFRS registered ethical breeder in December 2020 for them to follow the lead of these well socialised rats and learn to trust me and slowly become happy, confident rats. I lost Bru in July 2021. As of writing (April 2022), Berry is still with us, though has a mammary tumour and is on palliative care. In my 18 months of rat owning, I have had 30 rats; 20 of whom make up my current mischief. Most of these rats are rescues, with many different stories that I'll share on the blog one day, but all of whom added to my desire to become an ethical breeder.
