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, and from late 2017 I'm planning to focus on agouti and cinnamon, with a separate(ish) black/mink line, which is also likely to be silvered, at least initially. I would happily be in a position to keep Essex markings going but we shall see how it goes. I may occasionally get russian-based varieties out, and in some litters there is a small chance of topaz/buff (see varieties photos).

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