I started breeding because I had sweet, intelligent pet rats and wanted to keep that genetic temperament going. Over the last seven years, we have seen a strengthening of their immune system and increased longevity. I'm now using them to help improve other genetic lines. Rats are different than other pets. If private ethical breeding isn't done, the species will degrade. I breed for their future. They are everything to us.
