Applications are open! As of now, I only have room for new applicants who are wanting females.
I currently have 10 open slots for females! Please send me a message for an application if you'd like to be added to the waiting list!
Since I didn't have many males produced with my current litters, I will only have enough for those already on my male waiting list. I do have one more female I am hoping has some babies for me, but it's too early to tell if she it pregnant yet. If she does have some babies for me, and produces more males, I will have room to open a few slots for the male waiting list.
Come see us at Indiana's first rodent expo! I will be vending this event, which will be my first show! I won't have any ratties with me, but I'll be bringing fancy mice as well as my spinies. I've only got a few left that haven't been reserved though. All the info is on the flier below!
Pouch full of babies!
Love sitting with these guys, especially when I put my hand in with them and get all kinds of kissies and nibbles!
Due to the length of my waiting lists, I will not be accepting new applications at this time. The only exceptions will be if I have babies left over after I have gone through those on my waiting lists. Some people pass on the babies available at that time due to them wanting specific varieties. If I do have babies left over, I will accept new applications ONLY for those available. Once the estimated wait time drops back down to 3-6 months, I will allow new applications to be sent in.
My next pairings will start 8/31/19. Pictures of the potential parents are posted on the Nursery tab. The most up to date pictures I have of my current babies are posted there as well. I also have some available critters on the rat and mouse tabs. Feel free to check them out!

I apologize for not keeping this site as up to date as I've been wanting. The past month was busy with adoptions and paper work for the ratties. I'm setting aside a little time each day this week after work to update the website. Hopefully, by the end of the weekend, I'll have nearly everything finalized!
- Twister and Wolfe were paired 6/6/19. I will be weighing her periodically to see if she is gaining.
- Ducky and Finnley were placed together 6/6/19 but Ducky went back into heat. They were placed together a second time 6/11/19.
- Pyroar and Littlefoot were placed together for the first time on 6/11/19.
I will be monitoring all of their weights to see if they gain, which will be an indication of successful pregnancies. For pictures of the mentioned pairs, please see the Nursery page under the About the Litters tab.
- The Available Rats tab has been updated with Twister x Littlefoot's babies
- The Nursery page has been updated with my most recent pictures of each of the litters
- The waiting list has been updated
- And, I am in the process of making an official Policies and FAQ page
I will be updating my adoption fees as follows.
$25 for a single (only available if you have one or more rats of the same sex, spayed or neutered companions, and around the same age)
$20 each if you adopt a pair or more
$30 for a single (same rules apply as above)
$25 each for a pair or more
If you are a repeat adopter, a $5 discount will be deducted from each new rattie you adopt from me. :)
Lots of time, hard work, and money goes into these guys. This is 100% A hobby for me. I have never seen profit, nor do I break even. I spend lots of out of pocket money on these guys for supplies, cages, vet bills, etc. This is NOT my job. I have a full time, 40 hour, job I work on top of this. None of their income, or the money made from my Etsy shop, is pocketed. All of those funds go towards them. They are not cheap to raise and sustain.
With the increased amount of people on my waiting lists, and the increased amount of rats I have, it is taking more and more out of my pocket. While I am more than happy to pay out of pocket when needed, I do need some help from their income to continue to breed and improve ratties as a whole. I have also had several adopters and potential adopters inform me that I should increase my adoption fees, so after some thinking, I agreed with what they had to say. This will never be something I make profit from, and if I do, it will go into a savings account for emergency vet bills for these guys.
Thank you all for reading this and being so kind and supporting!
New litters have been born! Check out the Nursery page for pictures and more info!
Twister has a litter of 9 babies, which are now 3 weeks old, and Ducky just had 6 babies today! I'll be keeping an eye on her to see if she does have anymore throughout the night.
Cera is still showing quite a round belly, so hopefully we'll be seeing some babies from her soon as well!
It's too soon to tell if Rose is pregnant or not yet, but fingers crossed for another litter from my sweet Rosy Posy!
Priestess is beginning to gain back feeling and mobility with the left side of her face! <3 Her whiskers are starting to twitch a little more, and she can somewhat blink her eye! For those of you who were not aware, she is currently suffering from Bell's palsy, so we have to give her fake tears in her left eye to keep it moist. She is now finally gaining back some feeling in that side, and should fully recover!
Twister is getting so big! If you've not seen her belly picture, you've got to! It's the cutest mommy belly ever <3 She's such a stinking love bug! Thanks so much Clifford Sister Rattery, for allowing me to adopt and breed this sweetheart! <3
Echo seems to be declining still... He's unfortunately developed hind leg deterioration. I'll probably only be able to keep him around for another week. While it pains me so much to see another one of my original babies go, I know it's the best for him.. <3 If he continues to decline, he will have painful pressure on his spine, and soon won't be able to move at all. Before he gets to that point, I will make the call and help him across the rainbow bridge.
Val and Web are still scheduled for surgery next Wednesday to have their tumors removed! I know these ladies will feel so relieved to have them gone. <3 In a effort to help raise some extra funds to fill the vet savings back up, I'll be posting several new ready to ship sets on my Etsy shop most likely sometime Sunday or Monday. <3
I still have two pairs of males around 3.5 months old that are looking for new homes! Their pictures were posted pretty recently if you'd like to find them! I'll also be updating their new pictures on my website this weekend, but their older ones are up there now if you're having trouble finding the posts on here.
I also have some mice I am looking to rehome as pets! I have three males right now, and will soon have some females that will be ready to go as well. <3 Please contact me for more information!
I will be working on updating the waiting list tonight, but I'm not sure if I'll have time to finalize it. Whenever I do, I'll post it here! :)
