My Lines

Siamese-

Siamese is my main line and the line I started with. They are my favorite! I am currently on my 11th generation of my first line (as of Jan 2022). The start of my line in 2014, was with a beautiful Siamese girl named Khaleesi, who was my most heart rat ever.

 

From Khaleesi and her offspring, I outcrossed my Siamese line and split it a few times. 

 

Continued still from Khaleesi, the line was outcrossed with a Dwarf Siamese GSR Castiel, that I received from Great Star Rattery at the very beginning of 2016.

In 2016 I also I crossed with a Burmese Harley line (Burmese works with c locus). This line added Velveteen and Satin coats. At the time I did have Siamese and Burmese Harley as well, I am no longer breeding Harley or Burmese.

This is my newest Siamese line. I received Black Eyed Marten from Enchanted Hills Rattery in 2018. Marten is on the c locus and the Black Eyed Marten has the Black Eyed gene that is also needed to give Siamese black eyes, I paired my Black Eyed Marten, Miley with a male Siamese Dwarf, Orion (one of Castiel's sons). This gave me BES (Black Eyed Siamese). Sadly this line had some temperament and Hormonal issues that I had to work out. I am now happy with this line!

I now breed Siamese in

  • Dumbo and Standard Ear

  • Standard Ruby and Black Eyes

  • Seal Point & Russian Blue Point

  • Standard, Velveteen, and Satin Coats

  • Standard Size and Dwarf

Health/Issues in my lines: 

My ;ines are healthy and have beautiful temperaments. At the very start of my line I had a handful of babies with eye issues. I didn't breed any of them and have not seen any other eye issues since. At the very beginning of my line I did have some hormonal aggression in some of my males. I have successfully bred away from that and have not seen any temperament or hormonal issues in a very long time. They are definitely my best lines. Super squishy, cuddly and sweet.

Marten

Marten has become one of my favorite varieties and has a lot of distinct looks. I breed a variety of different Martens.

I first got my Martens in 2017 from Taboo rattery. I was not having much luck with the line until I got new Martens in 2018 from Enchanted Hills Rattery, who also gave me my first Black Eyed Marten.

I am currently breeding:

  • Dumbo ears

  • Black, Blue, Russian Blue and Mink colors

  • Berkshire, Variegated, Patched, Blaze, and Downunder

  • Standard coat and Silvermane coat

  • Standard size and Dwarf

I have not had any health issues pop up in the Marten line. While the temperament needed some work at the start, they are now lovely sweethearts. I have had some of my most beloved heart rats from my Marten line. My girls are outgoing yet lovey. I am extremely happy with this line.

Siamese Sable (Tonkinese)

As I love all things color point, I had to have them! They are a new line to me as of July 2018. I received a female I named Brittany to be the start of my lines from Enchanted Hills Rattery in Kansas. ​

My Current Lines:

  • Standard Ear

  • Standard Size

  • Satin and Standard coats

  • Working on getting Silvermane Tonks as well​

I have not seen any health issues so far. 
Their temperament is not quite pet-ready yet. No aggression or hormonal issues but they are a bit anxious and do not quite seek out human attention. But I am working on them!

They are extremely beautiful rats and I love the variety!

Agouti Silvermane

 

In early 2020 I got my first Agouti from Flower City Rattery. I named her Smitten and paired her with my beautiful Black Silvermane Downunder line, my male Mercury. 

I haven't had the smoothest time with this line. They have had some temperament and hormonal issues that I am still trying to work out
