About The rats Litters & homing Husbandry

Welcome to Lovecraft Stud, a small rattery in Lancashire. My breeding is very small-scale (with only a handful of litters every year) and focuses on improving longevity and health, maintaining temperament and good type.

My rattery name is registered with the National Fancy Rat Society, of which I am a member, and I qualified for my stud name in December 2013. My home club is North of England Rat Society and I serve on the committee as Treasurer.

I don't update this site very often between litters so it can appear more out of date than it actually is. When I have litters, I try to upload kitten photos to the Lovecraft Rats facebook page; this website is mainly to keep longer-term track of information in an accessible format.

Any questions or comments, please email

20/09/2020: I'm trying to get back into the swing of this, having neglected the website for far too long. I am not spending much time on social media and the more out of date this site becomes, the harder it gets to sit down and get it all up to speed. A bunch of photos and information is missing or outdated and all the links that lead to my Batrats site are extremely outdated, but at some point I will hopefully get round to sorting that too!

However - breeding is continuing well! The lack of shows (and all other social commitments and plans) due to the covid restrictions has actually made it a bit easier for me to focus on, and enjoying, the breeding side. Usually we have to plan the timing of our litters fairly carefully to avoid clashes with other life stuff, but at the moment that's not the case, which I'm finding quite freeing.
