Every morning and evening I'm greeted with sweet rat faces. MBLU rats are very sweet by nature. They are not "trained tame" by excess handling. Each litter is checked daily starting on their first day of life. At about two weeks of age, I start handling them 10-15min every few days as a litter. I do not handle them enough for them to bond with me, this helps with them bonding to you after purchase. When possible, I combine two or more litters when their eyes open as this helps them socialize with other rats and the moms have adult companionship. By 5 weeks when you purchase your new rats, MBLU rats are well socialized with rats, other animal smells, and household sounds.
Rats will not be sold as solo pets. Single rat rate is for a buddy rat for your currently owned rat. If you don't already have rats, MBLU only sells rats in pairs or more of same gender. Due to possible adult male aggression, I have found that 3 or more males do much better together than just two.

Pet Rats (All Ages)
Pet rats have no breeding rights and are to be pet only. Pet rats are to be kept in same gender groups only. By purchasing pet rats from MBLU you agree to not breed the MBLU rats.
Breeder Rats are available to established Ratteries or those starting a Rattery. Breeder Rats include full breeding rights, three generation Rat Tree, and full ancestor history with parent info. You are able to build an extended Rat Tree with the information provided. Rat Breeders will often be given first available appointments to choose their stock before rats are released to general public. MBLU does not hold rats!
Rat Tree (Pedigree)
Rat Trees are only available upon request showing 3 generations.
Breeder Rights Rat Trees includes Ancestor History. If requested, a PDF file will be emailed after purchase and is included in your purchase price. Let me know rat names to personalize certificates.
Printed Rat Tree can be mailed for $3, $1 per additional rat
Please check the Available page for updates on a regular basis. Photos of all available rats along with appointment dates and times will be posted about a week before rats are available. Please use the Contact Form on the Available page to request an appointment. If more appointments are requested than available, names will be drawn in a lotto system to determine who and order of appointments. Female rat appointments are often assigned via the lotto system because of high demand.
Rats to be picked up from Chatsworth, CA 91311
Please bring a critter carrier, box, or small cage to take your rats home in. Rats are small, carrier wire should not be more than 1/2 inch wide.
MBLU Rats are available for purchase about 5 weeks of age and older. First Appointment First Choice of Rats. Rats can go home with you at your purchase appointment. There are no reservations, holds, or reserve on rats listed on the available page. Breeder requests will have first appointments on the available date. You are not authorized to bring your current rats to meet their new companions. Please leave all your current pets at home and not bring them to your purchase appointment.
All available rats of desired sex are brought to the meeting place for you to choose from. You can only purchase one rat if it is going to be a same gender buddy for any rat/rats you currently own. MBLU Rats are not sold as solo pets, they must go in same sex pairs or more. Males do best in groups of 3 or more.
At Your Appointment:
I meet at my local park, usually near a specified corner. You will be able to choose from all rats available of same gender. Rats can go home with you from your appointment, so please remember a carrier. Please allow 10-30 minutes for you to choose your companions. Payment is made after you've chosen your buddies and any extras that are available. MBLU accepts Cash, PayPal, and Credit Card. No Checks.
Since MBLU does not have forms or contracts for you to fill out, MBLU does request you notify MBLU if anything happens to your purchased rat(s) in health and/or temperament so records on that rat and line can be notated. Please report any illness, growths, or temperament issues.
MBLU does not offer refunds or accept returns or exchanges
All Purchases are final. Although MBLU never knowingly sells a rat that is sick, rats that are relocated are very stressed and stress can cause a mycoplasma flair up which can lead to a respiratory illness. If your rat is sneezing a lot or appears sick in any way, please take them to a veterinarian for evaluation. If you are no longer able to keep your rats for any reason, please find a friend to take them, search out a pocket pet rescue, or take them to a city/county animal control center.
MBLU Rescue: (No Longer Accepting Any Animals)
MBLU Rescue has a few resident rescues being cared for.
MBLU Rescue no longer offers pocket pet rescue effective Jan 1, 2017.
