For Rats:

Key term used in descriptions for rats:

Scruff - "Scruffing" is a temperament test. It involves holding the rat by the skin on the back of their neck. Sounds mean but it doesn't hurt when done right and it's a quick test. Ideally, all rats will not mind. Some mind more than others and while it's ideal for them to scruff nicely and even more ideal for them to "tuck" up their feet, it is not a clear determinant of good temperament. A rat can have a poor tuck and still have a friendly and loving temperament.

Tucking - to lift up their feet and tuck them into the body while also going limp.

Temperament rating for rats: (Both ratings of 5 and 4 are considered very good. Rating three means the rat is pretty good but will benefit from socialization. Rating 2 is considered iffy meaning that they will need a good amount of socialization and are best with experienced homes) 

5. Exceptional, perfect. Has a perfect or very good tuck during scruff test. Rat is friendly and squishy. Often labeled breeding quality depending on other factors.

4. Great temperament, good or fair scruff, should settle quickly into his/her new home.

3. Fair temperament, can be social and outgoing or shy, might be a bit vocal when scruffed, fair scruff, will not tuck or may tuck but tenses when grabbed at. Will benefit by socialization.

2. Rarely listed. Iffy temperament,  usually shy, will need socialization. Base temperament is not perfect, but this rat will be fine and make a good pet once handled daily and settled into a home. Rats rated 2 are best for either experienced homes or homes with no small children.

All animals are reserved under a strict no breeding contract unless otherwise discussed.

Available to new inquiries. Ready to leave nov 24th. These two girls are out of a great bloodline, but they seem to be PEW - which most people shy away from.

If interested, please provide an adoption application by email. They are $40 each regardless on whether they are reserved in a pair or as a single. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4CQipshAb_M
