Any rat lover is going to fall head over heels in love with this Christmas tree ornament featuring a rat. They can enjoy the adorable ornament while they adorn the festive tree at the same time. A delicate glass bulb features the artist’s hand drawn, originally designed, cut and floated paper rat enclosed within. Lots of snow like glitter surrounds the cut-out to bring out a perfect winter charm to the ornament. The little rat looks like it is all set to pop out of the bulb to greet one and all.

Gifts for Pet Rats

If your rat lover friend or a family member also has rats as pets, a good idea is to get a functional gift they can use for their adorable pets. New toys and accessories that will make their rats happy is something every rat owner would love to get.

But make sure you do your research when purchasing a gift that is intended for pet rats because there are products out there that are sold labeled as suitable for rats but are actually not suitable and are unhealthy. Experienced rat owners already know what is safe or not safe to use so make sure you research whether a product is really safe for the rats so you don’t end up buying an unusable product for your rat lover friend! But with our list, you can’t go wrong.

Comfortable Rope Perch

How about exercising those super tiny rodent feet with a comfortable perch rope that you can bend or twist to get fun shapes. This multi-colored cotton rope easily connects to a wire cage while holding the shape, which makes it a great climbing toy. It surely kills boredom and gives the pet an additional way to move around the cage.

Double Bunk-Bed Hammock

Another name for comfort and coziness, this double bunk-bed hammock is a super cool gift for pet rats and their owner. It’s made of quilted soft fleece, letting your pet relax on the upper bed or snuggle on the bottom swinging layer. Rats love soft surfaces to play and bounce, which is why this hammock proves to be one of the most fun-filled presents for them.

Rope Net Activity Toy

Rats can never get enough of climbing and running around the cage and this cotton rope net is perfect for them to express those natural behaviors. This toy encourages exercise and movement and keeps the rats agile and healthy. Your rat owner friend will surely love to see their pets having fun with this practical toy.

Durable Eco-Friendly Chew Toys

This entertaining toy set has got 12 different types of chew toys that will provide hours of chewing fun for the little rodents. A healthy teeth growth coupled up with lots of swinging, playing, rolling, and so much more – who wouldn’t want this for their tiny furry friend? These chew toys range from pine nuts to apple tree branches, unicycle to bell roller, ball swing to molar strings and more.
