About Me

Hi, I'm Laurinda.

I'm 24 years old and a Stony Brook University graduate. I hobby breed small animals for producing quality pets. All of my breeding programs are small scale and preformed with pride & care. When I'm not working with the animals, I write novels or work for my part time job.

Animals are my passion and have been a huge part of my life since childhood. My family teases how I always have a critter in my arms receiving kisses. Spending time with them is my greatest joy.

Breeding For Temperament & Health

Temperament & Handling

Rats: I select for genetic temperament! Breeding for temperament is one of the primary focus goals. Socialization from the breeder can help build early confidence, but is most effective when preformed in the actual pet home. My rats are handled, but it's typical for an animal to need adjustment time when pet placed. When selecting for temperament, I look for curiousness, confidence, baby nibbles, being relaxed when handled, friendliness, good scruff with ideally a perfect or good tuck, willingness to eat from my hand, etc. 


Rabbits: Small breed rabbits are brought into my living room starting at about 4-5 weeks old. During this time they are heavily socialized in a pet home environment - extremely important for small breed rabbit babies. Pet placed rabbits are allowed to leave at eight weeks old. 


Hamsters: I socialize hamster babies from two to four week of age. My hamsters are also heavily selected for temperament to ensure animals with positive behavioral traits pass down superior genetics. 


Gerbils: My gerbils are handled from a young age and are offered to pet homes at six weeks old.
