Litters

I am working with the aim of extending healthy lifespan in robust, typey, beautiful rats who have an active, engaging and people-oriented temperament. The main varieties I breed have been agouti and black in dumbo and top ear (see varieties photos). For 2017 the plan was to also focus on mink and cinnamon, however the carriers I had didn't cooperate, but Jemma (Isamu) and I both got some lovely topaz in our litters, and they appear to have good clotting, so for 2018 I will be going forward with topaz and eventually buff (and may pick up mink/cin again down the road). At the moment I doubt I will be in a position to keep Essex markings going but we shall see how it goes. I have a very exciting project in the pipeline, courtesy of a lovely doe from Hawthorn - topaz pearl, which is an incredibly beautiful unstandardised variety, so we will see what comes of that.

I usually upload kitten photos to the Lovecraft Rats facebook page every few days when I have litters: https://www.facebook.com/LovecraftRats
