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

The Rat is a harmless critter that spawns in the Graveyard. The Rat has only 5 health and no defense, and can only be damaged by players.

The Rat can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Rat Cage). Once crafted, the Rat cannot be released again, unless the furniture item is de-crafted via Shimmer(Desktop, Console and Mobile versions).
