The boys are home!

They are so sweet, curious and adorable! The one I named Loki is the more outwardly curious one, Oben is also very curious and sweet just not quite as quick to come running yet as Loki. But they are both wonderfully socialized and easygoing. Looks like they are both Siamese too, originally the breeder thought Oben was a Havana, but he is also getting points now. I was talking to another breeder friend of mine (Nicole at Rats Of keona) and she thinks since the litter had mink and black in it, that one of the boys is probably a mink point and the other a seal point. I think they are both beautiful! Oben is a little smaller and lighter shaded than Loki and has a darker nose smudge so far, but other than that they look just alike. :-)

Here is a pic in the temporary setup while they get used to me.

New pictures of the boys

The boys are almost 5 weeks old now (will be on this Wed) and they are so cute! I am picking them up on soon and can hardly wait! I have been thinking of names for them and so far really like Loki and Oben, but will wait and see what their little personalities are like too before deciding for sure.

New babies!

I have been missing having ratties around so much and finally decided the pain of losing them really is worth all the joy, love and silliness they brought into my life.

I had a hard time finding a breeder with any available babies (and close enough, to feasibly go get them) With rodent fest coming up in the next few months many of the local breeders are having to put breedings on hold for the quarantine rule. I am also impatient and just did not want to have to wait 2-3 months. Then I found a new rattery very close to me, it is called Queencity Rattery and I like what I saw... Beautiful rats, a knowledgeable breeder, very quick to answer my emails, a nice website and she has a 3 week old litter which had only two baby boys still available!

They are now reserved for me. :-) Yay! I am so excited. They are both dumbo, standard coat Siamese. They are absolutely adorable and I cannot wait to bring them home!
