a few ladies

To take my mind off the emptiness that Fuzz left in my heart, I photographed some of my females. Two of these ladies will be bred soon; Padme and Muffin. They are getting to the point where, if I don't breed them now, I never will.
I will be getting three rats from a rattery in Washington which I'm excited about. Two are males; a black harley and a burmese while the other is a female (black eyed siamese).

This is Muffin, a lovely agouti self rex dumbo. I'm hoping she carries harley (father carries it) and dwarf (ditto). She is such a squish :)

The only thing Muffin is afraid of are the cats!

Muffin and her buddy Padme (both these girls will be bred soon)

Padme is named after Padme Amidala but can also apply to Padma Patil :)

Padme is my squishy sewer rat

Black rats are one of my favorite colors (agouti and pew are other favorites)

The rattie in front is Lavender (Brown) while the face in the back is Pavarti Patil.

Pavarti.

Pavarti, Lavender, and a girl that I'm still trying to place

I was thinking of naming Pavarti's sister Padma but I already have a Padme and thought I would be confusing.

The white rats aren't pews, himis, or seal siamese dispite the color their points look in the photos. Their point aren't sepia, nowhere near. They are more of a silvery grey so I'm thinking they are dove points (both parents were dove and they both carry siamese)

Current Mood: blah

I really need to take some photo's of ours now they're bigger, Mole is a really pretty rat with his charcoal coat and white belly (I've no idea what the colour would be called!).

bad black berkshire. Or, I just call them charcoal berks...of course, since you are in the UK he could be a true husky...but only if he's gotten really light, like almost white.

he looks black but close up it's more a very dark charcoal grey.. his belly is bright white though. He's Ali's favourite since he was the first one you could tell apart from the others...

*gasp* your rats are very beautiful! You make me want to go home right now and hug my babies. Padme's coat is so dramatic!

It's actually just the camera. It seems when I crop and resize to anything below 400x400 the fur all looks sparkley

Haha well, of course she's not actually quite that sparkley, I was just commenting on her remarkable...blackness.

Ah yes, she is a very good black (that sounded weird;)
She has only very slight silvering and no rusting ^_^

Yup! My first black rat, Dante, rusted out before four months. A lot of breeders will say not to breed a black rat with rusting or ticking. Normally I do agree because that's not good type. However, Dante was the daddy of Starbucks who was the mom of Fuzz :]
That's why squishyness and sweetness (and health!) are more important then type. But why am I preaching to the choire?

If I lived anywhere near I would totally adopt rats from you. It's really hard to find rats in Australia except in pet stores, and the myco infection rate is absolutely mon-u-MENTAL. It really sucks, it's so difficult to come across healthy rats.
