The image you provide is from the Satirical Ostraca, in which cats serve rat masters, and vice versa.

However, I sincerely doubt there's a "rat god" in ancient Egypt: in general, rats were the bane of ancient Egyptian life, as they attacked crops and caused damage and disease (which is why cats were elevated to deificiation: they kept rat populations in check).
