Timeless Tails Rattery was established in 2002 as a hobby breeder of fancy rats. We are currently located in Salt Lake City, Utah. My goal as a rat breeder is to breed healthy, sweet, pet rats first and foremost. Secondly I focus on colors, markings, fur and body types. My top priority as a breeder is to reduce health issues and increase the average lifespan in the rats in my lines.
My rats may produce litters in many fur colors such as mink, russian blue, american blue, agouti, black, fawn, beige, cinnamon, and more. Markings and shadings range from self, berkshire, hooded, dalmation, siamese, burmese, etc. Litters born here may include both standard and dumbo ears; we have several coat types including standard, rex, velveteen and harley. Occasionally we may have double rex as well, however we do not breed hairless. We do have some potential manx carriers, but if any manx are born, they will be kept here or placed with pre-authorized homes-they will not be available to general adopters.
My rats are fed a diet of Harlan lab blocks, a homemade grain mix, and fresh veggies and fruit. They are caged in mostly Martins cages and Ferret Nations (converted with wire mesh to make the spacing safer), and a couple other smaller cages for nursing, youngsters, and hospital cages. Each cage has houses (igloos and/or other types of houses), hammocks, litter pans, tubes, balls and other things to keep them entertained. I use Good Mews recycled paper pellets for litter pans, and Aspen bedding mixed with some Good Mews for the base of the cage. They get playtime in a homemade playpen with tubes, balls and other toys and time to cuddle with me also.
I typically breed about 5-8 litters a year, depending on the ages of my rats, litter sizes, waitlists, and other factors. Since I do take a few months off from breeding every year, there are not always babies available. If you are interested in adopting, you will need to email me and be screened to be added to the waitlist. Sometimes it takes a few months to have available babies for the people on the waitlist or have a litter you are interested in, so be aware it is unlikely to get babies without waiting a bit.
