Litters

I am working with the primary aim of extending healthy lifespan in robust, typey, beautiful rats who have a really active, engaging and people-oriented temperament. I work very closely with Jemma at Isamu Rats; we breed the same family of rats and share our waiting list, and try to coordinate our litters. We are in the process of crystallising our breeding pool into two lines:

  • Agouti and topaz (top ear and dumbo)
  • Black (top ear and dumbo)
  • Our cinnamons (part Rivendell lines) have been passed onto other NFRS breeders and incorporated into our black line.
  • Kaylee at Azarath is working with the downline from the last Lovecraft Essex rats.

See varieties photos here. I usually upload kitten photos to the Lovecraft Rats facebook page when I have litters.

Current litters

After a lot of failed litters over the last few months, I now have a wonderfully loud large litter in the nest. All non-keeper kittens will have homes lined up from our waiting list.

Planned litters

Further litters are planned for 2019, but this has been a very difficult year with lots of failed litters and does that haven't taken, so we're really not sure what will happen next. If you are interested in going on the (currently extremely long) waiting list for kittens, please see the Homing page for more information.
