The animal equivalent to Marmite - Love or Hate?
Rats are thin-tailed, medium-size rodents that originated in Asia and Australia but are now found all over the world.
They are one of animals that really does seem to get a reaction both good and bad. So many have irrational fears of rats (and rodents) but we always try and show that they are beautiful, fun and loving creatures that really will steal your heart giving half the chance.

Derek came to live with us in 2022 when he was in need of a new forever home. He was very timid and defensive on arrival and took a while to settle in.
Derek loves to explore and seek out food in hidden places. He is happy to be picked up and sit on a lap for a cuddle. He has his own snuggle bag which he loves to nap in.
