@  Caryn : (13 June 2018 - 10:51 PM)

I've been lucky, using the "internot" address I've been able to access without the virus warning for months. But there was no one else around :ratsad:

@  raggedtoothg... : (13 June 2018 - 09:28 PM)

It let me log in again! Yay :happydance:

@  Tails : (10 June 2018 - 01:06 PM)

yaaaay for internet again haha

@  Caryn : (05 June 2018 - 01:36 PM)

Hope it can be sorted without losing anything. Crossing fingers!! :D Arrrggh, I finally have internet after two weeks of a faulty line, so I'm interneting myself to a standstill right now :P

@  Tails : (28 May 2018 - 10:13 PM)

i love you all and thanks for still coming back to RN xx

@  Tails : (28 May 2018 - 10:13 PM)

hi guys. short of redoing the whole forums im not too sure on how to rid us of this probem we're having. Im sorry Ive been so absent, but i guess ill explain shortly in a post one of these days. i am going to put a lot more effort into sorting this out, and hopefully in doing that we wont lose any information.

@  Caryn : (16 May 2018 - 11:01 AM)

How strange :blink: I get to the usual full site :/

@  DiscoMoose : (15 May 2018 - 01:36 PM)

Ah... makes sense about the warning page. So glad she found a workaround, so as not to scare of potential new forum peeps... still, if I visit ratanooga.co.za I get only a 'hello' on the page *blush*

@  Caryn : (13 May 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Tails created the alternative forum address to get around that big red warning page, hence the redirection. No idea what's going on in general though, haven't heard from Tails in ages :( The main Ratanooga.co.za website though is still up and running as per normal.

@  DiscoMoose : (11 May 2018 - 03:24 PM)

I was also not so down with the big red virus warning the forum was making (i knew it was safe, but it disturbed my sense of loving things that are orderly) - so i'm happy that's gone. Some other observations: why is the forum redirecting to internot.co.za? what is happening to ratanooga.co.za? the page source over there is just a single 'hello'...? hmm curiouser and curiouser... ;)

@  DiscoMoose : (09 May 2018 - 12:00 PM)

I've been missing in action *blush* happy to be back though :boogie: once a regular always a regular I guess :Kiss:

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:

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.
