________________________


Another high key shot of Lorich, Thorim and Owain.

Thorim is the one yawning, Lorich is playing hide and seek in the middle again and my old sweet Owain is sleepy :heart:

Thorim and Lorich, siamese seal point hooded mismarked velveteen rats, born june the 1st, 2010 (their eyes are really that dark), they are brothers (I've also got another little one from the same unwanted litter : Thjazi, who's got standard coat). And YES, they ARE siamese. They looked beige hooded at birth while an himalayan would look albino.
For the ones who are interested in genetics, himalayans carry the albino locus and the siamese one (c / ch), while siamese carry two siamese ones (ch / ch) which causes himalayans to have a stronger color dilution and makes them appear fully white at birth while siamese are much darker. Not that I care about any of my ratties color/markings or about genetics but many people keep on sending me notes telling me I'm wrong about their color and I'm getting tired of this.

They are the most adorable rats ever : playful, cuddly and licky to death, they'd do ANYTHING to show how much they love their humans :aww:

They come from an unwanted litter. Their mother was pregnant in a pet store and was about to give birth to her babies, she would soon have become snake food. Fortunately, a girl who was there to buy some bedding found her and took her home :)

Owain, himalayan seal-point hooded standard rat, born june 2008

He pretty much looks like a siamese but is an Himalayan : he was almost all white when I got him, the points just started to appear and there was no creamy tinge at all in his fur. He became much darker than I would have imagined!
He's my biggest rattie, he suffers from metabolic troubles which made him obese (there's unfortunately no way to make him lose weight without causing damages to his kidneys, so he'll remain fat during his whole life ^^;). He is a big and very cuddly boy who loves to lick everyone's fingers (especially when one scratches his back ^^)

Thjazi didn't want to pose with his brothers and friend so I let him play with Fenrir while I was photographing them :)

I love your pictures, you use the camera in an excellent way to see how the animals are fine. Especially I like your raw images for they are my favorite animal and I think it's hard to get good pictures of them.

Oh my goodness, they are so cute! I wanted to have a rat as a pet, but my mother said no when she saw how big they got. The bigger, the more fluffy cute-ness! :3
My favorite one is sleepy, chunky one all the way to the left. He looks like a Henry. :iconiloveitplz:

I love seeing your Siamese boys- they're so adorable! I can never get mine into such cute poses without resorting to bribery. :)

(And yes, I knew they were Siamese even without reading. I have a 18 mo. mis-marked Himalayan buck. "Him"s will display the red eyes characteristic of albinos since they carry part of the albino gene, where as Siams don't.)
