Not to be confused with Mouse, a similiar critter which spawns in the Underground and Cavern.

The Rat is a critter that spawns in the Graveyard and cannot harm players. Rats will attempt to dodge any enemy although they cannot be hurt by them.

It can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into a Rat Cage to be used as decorative furniture. Once crafted, the caged Rat cannot be released again, and when placed down it moves around inside the cage as it would do outside.
