@  Rattieroos : (26 April 2017 - 05:21 PM) Thanks Amy:)
@  Amy : (26 April 2017 - 07:54 AM) Aah sorry Lolly :( But it is good to know that he will be with his friends and loved and spoilt! I am not saying I agree with your mom, but ratnapping is always an alternative ;)
@  Amy : (26 April 2017 - 07:52 AM) Lots of good vibes Rattieroos :goodvibes:
@  Rattieroos : (26 April 2017 - 01:47 AM) Thanks Lolly *hugs* he still gets around dragging his behind behind him :P he's not ready to give up yet. Going so bald behind both ears.. bt i love kissing those baldy spots. He's a tough old man rat. Love him too much.. but when i see he can't get around or is battling even to eat then it'll have to be time. Not yet though.. he still has spunk :) thanks for the goodvibes *hugs*
@  lollyh : (25 April 2017 - 11:06 PM) oh no roos. i am sorry to hear about bass. :ratsad: .he really is a little fighter,you & him have been through so much.lots of goodvibes :goodvibes: :goodvibes: for him,maybe with being closer to you,things may get easier for you both. *hugs* *hugs* *hugs*
@  lollyh : (25 April 2017 - 11:02 PM) Hey amy. i sadly cant. :ratsad: .the previously owner has already arranged everything with the new cpt owner,apparently it is a really good home where the boys will be super spoilt & loved,so that is all i can ask for really for such sweet boys,love & spoiltness.i am gonna miss them all especially moo.last night he lays upside down in my arms giving me kisses.it was just to precious.my mom even said you should keep him & when i told her i cant,she said i should ratnap him. lol
@  Rattieroos : (25 April 2017 - 09:48 PM) So glad the forums up and running again. Thanks everyone for the condolences. I'm ok thanks Amy. Almost took Bass to be PTS yesterday because his HLD has got so bad and his front legs were slipping even though I adjusted the cage for him.. plus we've found 3 pea size lumps on him as well. He's one and a half and will be with me for one year in May. I cancelled the appointment as my regular vet is on leave and he's still eating with gusto.. just stepped up the nursing even more and fortunately I already moved them to my room a while ago, so it will be easier to keep an eye or ear out for him.
@  Amy : (25 April 2017 - 05:39 PM) I mean the other two!
@  Amy : (25 April 2017 - 05:34 PM) How are you doing Rattieroos?
@  Amy : (25 April 2017 - 05:34 PM) :ratsad: sorry Lolly. What if you keep him? The other three will have a happy time together...
@  DiscoMoose : (25 April 2017 - 01:56 PM) :bigeyerat:
@  lollyh : (24 April 2017 - 07:52 PM) Sigh..sometimes it just sucks,I am rat sitting 3 boy rats who are up for adoption & they have all found a home together already in cpt,which is fanstatic for them but I have fallen in love with the one black self called moo moo.i so wanna keep him..its gonna be such a hard goodbye. :ratsad:
@  Roonel : (24 April 2017 - 02:59 PM) Poor Fifi, sorry to hear!
@  DiscoMoose : (24 April 2017 - 12:31 PM) I'm really sorry about Fifi Nikki :(
@  DiscoMoose : (24 April 2017 - 12:31 PM) I'm glad the forums are back!

Hey all, you may have pics of these somewhere but I would love to see different pics of Sable Siamese please. As you may or may not know, my Mischief was adopted before he could be sold to a pet store. He is my first sable Siamese, It took ages of looking at google pics etc to eventually see what type of rat he is and throughout his life his colours have kept changing. He's a Hooded Sable Siamese and apparently quite rare? Is that true?

Anyway I'd looove to see other peoples pics of their gorgeous Sables :pics:
My current Ratties: Dove, FiFi, Marybelle, Rosy, Ivy, Peaches and Plum (girls) Thunder, Nibbs, Doodle and Wallee (neutered boys) then my intact boys: Emo, Roo, Bangerang, Bass, Rodger and Dodger :ratlol: :tummykiss: :Kiss:

Always remembered, always in my heart, RIP my children: Sandy (our first ratty love) Pepper, Mickey, Snowy, Cloudy, Kellogs, Snoekie, Thing 1, Wotnot, Thing 2, Mischief, Monty, Barney, Seamus, Dolores aka Dilly, Jerry, Brian, Alfred, Patches, Stewie, Squeak, Bubble, Treble, Hayley, Onyx, Milo,Roxie and baby Bailey :cry: :ratangel:

RIP my doggy loves: Andy and Toffee, loved and missed forever :cry:

Have you seen pics of Mischief? Is he a sable hooded Siamese? That's what I found out, but I don't know if my information is correct. Not that it matters that much, it's just out of curiosity. I LOOOOVE all my babies so much :yogie:

Worldwide, Sable Siams are impossible to find because they're indigenous to SA, and we haven't exported any yet. But in SA, they're failry common as they're one of our local colours and have been bred into our imported lines to add the dumbo ears and harley coats.

It's fine Rattieroos, Timmy was very photogenic, in fact I think he was the most photogenic of all my ratties & it's such a beautiful pic of him, I had to share.

Ja, Chip was a hoarder rescue and my first ratty loss. He was a bit of a special case that turned out to be the sweetest fluff bug ever. Think he will always be an extra special ratty <3

Sorry hope the pics aren't too big? These are all Mischief. Please can those in the know confirm whether he is in fact a Sable Siamese or sable hooded Siamese or just a hooded ratty? He's still changing, he's getting lighter around his nose and he has the brown fur at the base of his tail. He's getting older now, I can feel his spine is starting to get bony. My hubby is going to be absolutely shattered when Mischief dies. He's now our oldest boy. I think he is as I'm not sure how old our Monty, Agouti is because he was fostered. They might be around the same age.

I think they change colour in summer. Hugo, which was a Burmese, used to go lighter in colour and in winter the brown nose came back.
Otherwise I would say he's Sable/Siamese hooded.

GORGEOUS!  :thud: Yes he looks like a hooded sable siamese to me. Hooded refers to the pattern of colouring, so he has a hood which makes him a hooded rat (my percival has his colour all over so he is not hooded), the sable siamese is the actual colour. As far as I understand the sable is just a lot darker in colouring than the regular siamese. What I love about siamese is their ever changing colouring :)

Yes, he's a Sable Siamese Hooded. Sable Siamese are typically darker than the "normal" Siamese (imported Siamese from the US that is found worldwide). Normal Siamese also have pink or red eyes, whereas Sable Siamese has ruby eyes.

Poor boy hated it! He had just had an op though and the vet 'fashioned' one to fit. Ha ha it took me a minute to figure out what you were talking about.
