Spacerat - the nom who dreamt of going into space...!

There once was a little rat who dreamt of going into Spacerat, the amazing little nom (as I like to call them), first inspired by my own fancy rats. Fancy rats are what we rat mom´s know our little pet rat´s to be, a special domesticated breed of rat that comes in a dozen different colours, fur patterns and always with huge, loving hearts. People are sometimes frightened of these little creatures, but I promise you, once you´ve met a fancy rat, you will fear no more! They are extremely attached to humans and constantly seek social interaction, they love to be fed treats, sit on your shoulder and/or lap and are fuzzy and soft to the touch. Rats are agile, can jump and run very well, are extremely intelligent for their size and have a telltale body language that you can learn to understand very well.

Spacerat came about because of a trio that was known as Coraline (big, fuzzy dumbo rat), Lina (the world´s greatest athlete) and Sini (the little sweet one). These were my first noms, and together they shaped both the design and the personality of Spacerat, his ratty family, and they also inspired me to continue designing new friends for Spacerat. Among these are Spacerat´s best friend, the cat Miau, which is inspired by my own childhood cat, my own first animal best friend. The latest addition to this big, happy group of friends are the candy monsters, from the planet Candy! Spacerat travelled there one day in his little space rocket and discovered an entire edible planet and their bright and fuzzy inhabitants, the monsters.
Currently the great tradition of Spacerat is upheld by Rohrschach, a very sweet and scatterbrained husky coloured nom and Perle, our cream-coloured nom, master of all arts of yoga. Also in loving memory and on the other side of the rainbow bridge is Gusje, the most beautiful silver-blue dumbo rat I have ever known.
