Rats are often misunderstood. Many people are afraid or disgusted in them. But they are actually very intelligent creatures full of personality and make beautiful loving companions to people who have had the privilege of having them in their family. Their intelligence, however has not gone unnoticed by scientists and cosmetic companies and sadly many rats endure terrible and unnecessary suffering at the hands of humans.
Hattie’s Hope is a painting about a rat who is dreaming of a better tomorrow - a future in which she and her fellow rats can have the respect and care they deserve; a future in which they are not purposely bred to live in small cages and suffer in the name of science.
