Talking Squeeeeeeal!!!!

So as most of you know i have this SERIOUS obsession with rats! Since Missy died i have had a hole in my heart and no other rat will EVER fill her place but i was on a total downer only having 3 girls! It didnt work out right when i gave treat titbits either as 1 of them always got a bigger chunk than the others lol. So anyway my husband has been adamant that we are getting NO MORE rats! And obviously being that he is a man and totally submissive to my bullying when we went to the petshop today to get wood shaving etc for the rabbits i ended up walking out with an 8 week old baby girl that i have called Oceana!!!!!

I was wondering if anyone could tell me what her markings are as i have never seen any like hers lol thats why i got her coz she stood out!!!!

IN a word adorable. I don't know the technical name for it either but wow. That really is neat patterning and such a cute face. Excellent find I must say.

She is very pretty, what a sweetie! The word piebald comes to mind but that may be entirely wrong! I have a book here with pictures of mice and a mouse with similar markings to your Oceana is described as 'Even-marked (genetically a pied)'. I looked in the rat section but there were fewer pictures but she could be a variegated variety. Sorry I wasn't a lot of help!

LOL thats ok! Thanks for all your comments i cant work out what she is apart from a fancy rat lol all i know is she is absolutely gorgeous and has one of the best personalities for a baby rat i have ever seen and she is just soooo tiny!!! Those pics dont show just how tiny she is lol none of my other 7 were that small when i got them lol i am scared to pick her up incase i break something lol. She loves to lay on me and go to sleep which is odd for a girl but hey ho lol i love her none the less!!!!

awwwww!!!!!!!! She is totally adorable! I love her to peices, how sweet!
I have searched for colour varities because these things interest me, but I can't find anything either, sh is quite unique though! If someone asked me what colour she was I'd tell them that shes a chocolate, split capped striped... but I'd also mention that thats a bit of a jumble up and a totally geuss LOL
Great rattie, congrats!

Yeah totally, it makes her unique
Capped husky seems to be the look I agree, I never thought of it really, but it seems to go! Or if you wanted a posh sounding name she is a capped roan!
But, I prefer using Husky LOL
