All The Squee That's Fit to Print

So many updates in such a short time!  These little babies are growing fast!
One adopter stopped by today to pick out 3 little girls to take home next week - and they might just make it a foursome!   So exciting!

These faces... I can't even stand how adorable they are:

Mama Zoe and Mama Chloe (who have been co-parenting both of their litters) are doing really well, and the person who's going to adopt them when all of the babies are weaned is really looking forward to them coming home!  There was a third "oops" litter because the mamas were left with the papas by the previous owner before coming to us, so right after Zoe gave birth, she fell pregnant again - and she just had seven more babies!  This will be her very last litter since we have been super-diligent about separating boys from girls at the 4.5 week mark.  It looks like the 7 latest babies are growing in dark fuzz (all but one - so that will probably be another ruby-eyed off-white).  

We will also be getting in some babies from other "oops" litters from different locations in Southern Ontario.  There will be many opportunities to adopt in the next few weeks!  Stay tuned for updates, or visit us on Facebook!  We already have a couple of pictures on our Facebook page of some really pretty tan-hooded dumbo babies that will be ready to be adopted in a week or two!

Wow... It's been FOREVER

So.. it's been awhile, huh?  Mostly because we've started up a Facebook page, and I keep forgetting to post here.  :/  YAY!  Go me!

If you're interested in seeing us on FB, here's the link to join our page:

I'll try to remember to update here, too.  :)

The Ratscue is still going strong.  We have a bunch of new babies that came to us as two "Ooops" litters.  (We NEVER breed.  Every rat that comes through here is a rescue.)  They're adorable.  I will be listing their genders and availability as we get everyone sorted.  We're very happy to say there's been some interest and a few have already been promised to very happy homes (including the two mamas!)

I haven't been receiving notifications about comments on this blog, so it might be easier to just go to the the FB page and comment if you see something you are interested in here, or email me at

So the babies that will be available within the next few weeks are:

Two grey and one cream coloured (males) dumbos.  These guys have just opened their eyes, so they're a couple of weeks old!

We have 9  black dumbos, born to a rex mama.  They are still too young to tell if they're rex, but they are definitely dumbo.  :)   Eyes still aren't open so they're just over a week old.    We have not sorted genders yet.

And we have 5 babies that will be joining us to go up for adoption once they're weaned from their mama in a couple of weeks.  They are all beige hooded dumbos.   There are 2 girls and 3 boys.

Any rat adopted from our Ratscue is to be adopted as a PET only.  No feeders, no breeders.  Don't forget to look us up on Facebook!  :D
