I had decided well over a month ago that I will start keeping rats... I adore the little critters and its been too many years since i had some. Any rats that I get will be posted here.
So, contacted the NFRS for the breeders list and got to work contacting people. Not alot happening to be honest.

Anyways, I hadn't planned on getting any stock from Pet Shops, but I saw these girls and couldn't resist!!
As I don't know the history of these rats, they won't be bred from.

They are such sweet girls, around 11 weeks old, a little nervous but thats understandable as they don't know me well yet. But the temprement so far has been excellent, not bitey in the slightest and very curious.



This is Fuzzy Butt! hehe Dominant one out of the four girls, very sweet, curious and bossy! She is a champagne rex


This is Fidget, the second in command hehe Still a little nervous, but relaxes quickly enough when held and there are things to investigate and smell! hehe Black hooded.


This is Spazz, submissive and nervous, but beautiful and very smart. She will be a playful rattie when she gets used to me, i can see it. Agouti hooded, perfect straight line on the hood, shame the line down her back doesn't go all the way.


And finally Scardy Cat, the most nervous, but even though she is genuinely quite freaked by me, and naturally looks for the furthest corner so her sisters can protect her, she is not even attempted to bite or squeal. She will slowly take food by hand and allows me to stroke her. She will take time to tame, but I will. She is also a champagne rex, slightly better curls than her dominant sister.

That champagne rex is irresistable; she's has a very pretty head too, which is one thing you don't always get in a rattie. Very pretty; the others look to be full of mischief. Gotta love those big muscular tails, too.

15mm I believe.

My girls are young and can't get thier noses through, so older rats shouldn't be a problem.

The only issue is, Fuzzy Butt seems to have developed an attitude now she is on eye level with me! lol
