Hell-Rats are found in Evil Dave's basement in Edgeville and can only be accessed after starting the Evil Dave subquest in Recipe for Disaster. Hell-rats are caught by having your cat chase and catch them, just like normal rats. After a cat or kitten manages to kill a couple of hell-rats, it will become a hellcat or hell-kitten. The cat may be changed back to normal by feeding it milk or by talking to Dave's mother.

When successfully caught, the rats always drop ashes and a random spice. The spice will have 1 to 4 doses and may be red, yellow, orange, or brown. These spices may be mixed with stews to create Spicy stews.

During the quest, Evil Dave claims that he is trying to raise a demon army and had tried to start off small with imps. However, Evil Dave ended up with hell-rats, which were supposed to be the lowest form of demons.

Catching hell-rats will earn credit toward the Cat training medal. A hell-rat can be added to the Rat pole upon being caught, but will not look any different from a regular rat.

Note: A full grown cat has a much higher chance of success at killing hell-rats versus a kitten. Kittens only have about a 5% chance of catching Hell-Rats, and as such are not advised.
