Hi, have you seen Coco?

Hey, Coco! You are late for your own retirement party!

Oh, sorry, Bandit! I’ll get dressed and be right there!

It’s OK, honey, you take your time. This is Dot and your big night!

Oh, Bozo, is it really my retirement? Bandit, do you still remember when we were both babies?

And, now, our litter is the last litter I will ever have…

Of course I remember, Dot. Thank you for having your last litter with me…

Oh, you guys are making me cry! Coco, I still remember when we were both babies, too. Why do you have to retire? Why do we have to get old?

Bozo, don’t cry! We live on forever in our litters. Look at the legacy we made together…

A part of us will go on in our children. And their children. And all of the people who adopt them and love them, are loving us too. Forever.

OMG, lighten up, ratties! This is a party! Who bought the nibbles? I’m hungry…

Roofy, don’t you ever think about anything but food? We’re having a moment, here…

“Big Fatty” is one to talk! He must weigh 3 times as much as me!

True, “Little Shrimpy”, but but that just means there’s more of me to love!

Big or little, fat or skinny, we love you all. Thank you, Dot and Coco, for everything you have done, and we wish you a very happy retirement with families who will love you forever.

Dot and Bandit’s and Coco and Bozo’s litters were born on January 14th.  They will be ready to be adopted by people who already have reservations today on or after February 18th, 2020.  This is not an invitation to get babies. The moment we know what litter you will be assigned to, whether this or any future litter, you will immediately be sent an invitation to come pick out your babies. If we haven’t sent you an invitation yet, it’s because we don’t yet know which litter will be yours. Litter assignments occur about one week before they are ready to take home.  If you have a reservation, and don’t receive an invitation for this litter, don’t worry, because Muppet, Skylar, Lilo, Pumpkin and Debbie will also have babies available very soon!

NEW: you can now reserve tame, domesticated Roof Rat babies!

Reserve baby Dumbo Eared rats online!

NEW: want a rat sooner, or don’t want to pay a deposit?  Sign up for adult or rescue rats!

And, don’t forget to order our Handmade Rat Pouches and Hammocks, so your babies will feel cozy and safe in their new homes!
