Welcome to Central Oregon Ratties, located in Bend Oregon!
My name is Lisa and I received my very first pair of rats in 2016. I fell head over heels in love with them! One thing led to another and after long and careful consideration I decided to start my own rattery as a hobby. My main focus, first and foremost, is health and temperament. My goal is to breed healthy and sweet pet ratties while also selecting pairs that may produce offspring that are better than their parents. Because I am more selective on temperament than I am of color, if you are looking for a specific color I may not have it available. Currently the colors in my litters include russian blue (& RB siamese), american blue and mink as well as variations of these colors mixed together. Occasionally I do produce a few beige but I do not select for that color. Additionally all of my litters are dumbo's.
All my rats are adopted out at 7-8 weeks of age, on special occasions sometimes 5-6 weeks. Please keep in mind that I am a small hobby breeder, not a baby factory. I don't have rats available year round since I carefully plan each litter and never have more than 1-2 pregnant mothers at a time; this allows me to spend ample time with each litter born. I normally don't plan any litters at all during the months June - August, simply because I have a lot of annual family outings during that time and can't dedicate the time that I prefer to mother and babies.
I do ask all adopters to fill out an adoption form as I like to know more information about you and make sure that the homes they are going to are well informed on rat husbandry. I love my rats and to me they are not pets that you just adopt on a whim, they are family and they deserve people that will treat them like family. I also keep a detailed record of each rat and where they went.
