If anyone had told me a year ago I'd have been anxiously waiting for 5 months for two rats, I'd have laughed in their faces.

I think you are in the wrong place buddy.
You are the weirdest cat I ever seen.
Now matter how big or small wierd or normal we or animals may be we can learn to love and get along and love is what makes it all worth wild. Becuase Beautie is in the eye of the beholder an no one is ugly or more prettyer then anything eals we are all equal. There are some ugly people and things but that is becuase man kind makes them this way do to thier actions.

Names? LOL. I've been an expectant mom for 5 months. I gots me all kinds of names. The final choice will be based on when I see them and likely not even on the list the way these things go.

Random contenders thus far:

Chihuahua and Terrier (This is my pet "Chihuahua" and my rat "Terrier")

Ector and Bors (Arthurian Knights who never get proper respect)

Smeagol and Deagol (LoTR)

Tucker and Windham (After storyteller Kathryn Tucker Windham)

Ed and Andy (After storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin and his childhood best friend)

Snicket and Pilkey (After two children's book authors)

Henkes and Munsch (Two more children's book authors)

Schultz and Klink (Hogan's Heroes if only so I can name their cage 'Stalig 13' swoon)

Sparky and Radar (M*A*S*H)

Bob and Butters (Dresden Files)

Mouse and Mister (Also Dresden Files)


...yeah. I have names. LOL!

they are cool, I have a rat named Radar. He was named after mass. I have so got to update my site and get every one on there. Doing up sites takes a lot more time then replying to messages.
DO you have a clue as to what colors they will be? as in the litter that was bron.

It's almost like waiting for Christmas isn't it?

The parents are Black, but carry Russian Blue and Chocolate. The breeder has been working with outcrossing a couple of generations back to strengthen the health and temperament of her Chocolate line by adding her excellent quality Russian Blue blood into the mix. So, the babies will be Black, with possibly some Russian Blue or Chocolate. There was even a chance of Russian Dove, but it looks like there were none in this litter. Chocolate is her end goal. The mom's a dumbo too, so some of the babies will likely be dumbo as well.

Haha! Considering that I was biting my nails waiting for these bubs during Christmas, I can safely say it was worse.

I told her color doesn't matter, and while at least one dumbo would be nice, it's not very important. My two biggest things were personality and health. Since her rattery has a long and proven track record for both (I've yet to meet of her clients and fellow rat breeders who doesn't sing her praises spontaneously), I think I'm in good hands. *happy nubby nailed sigh
