@  Rattieroos : (15 August 2017 - 06:40 PM) Hey all, I have tried the new photo thingiemabob and managed to load one pic! It doesn't seem to accept pics straight from the device.. only URL's I just tried a random pic from photo bucket and it came through?? So now I'm confused.

@  Rattieroos : (30 July 2017 - 08:50 PM) Hey Peaches is having her tumor removed tomorrow. Please send goodvibes. Can't get ont the forum now
@  Caryn : (26 July 2017 - 08:45 AM) Definitely best to get her to a vet and have her checked out. As I mentioned to Rattieroos as well, that choking type behaviour can also be pain related. So important to get professional advice.
@  Rattieroos : (25 July 2017 - 09:02 PM) Thunder choked on Sat and it went on for over an hour! We were so scared but all the sites we looked up said to leave them to work it out themselves unless over 4 hours then take to the vet. Apparently they can choke for up to 12 hours.. being over 2 yrs when he seemed to be over it, i let him sleep the rest of the day and since then he's been completely fine. I know it was choking though as he pulled his ears back while gagging and then had a lot of saliva and bile to try wash it down. His whole neck and chest were sopping wet. He didn't make a noise at all though. Lolly Nougat sounded more like a respiratory thing, gasping for air. If it happens again, try a normal asthma pump and take her to the vet. They don't gasp when choking, so bit worried. Let us know how she's doing.

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:

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.
