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 Pet Ratteries or those starting a Pet Rattery. Breeder Rats include full breeding rights, three generation Rat Tree, and full ancestor history with parent info. You are able to rebuild 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 reserve rats!
Pet Rat Tree (Pedigree)
Rat Trees showing 3 generations are only available upon request. 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 first rat, $1 per additional rat

If more appointments are requested than available, names will be drawn in a lotto system to determine order of available appointments.
Rats to be picked up from Chatsworth, CA 91311
Misty Blue Rattery does not deliver or meet half way.
Please bring a critter carrier, enclosed box, or small cage to take your rats home in. Wire on all carriers should not be more than 1/2 inch wide.
I meet at my local park, usually near a specified corner. Please allow 10-30 minutes for you to choose your companions. You will be able to choose from all rats available of same gender. Rats can go home with you at your purchase appointment.
First Appointment First Choice of Rats. There are no reservations, holds, or reserve on available rats. Breeder requests will have first appointments on the available dates. You are not authorized to bring your current rats to meet their new companions. Please leave all your current pets at home, do not bring them to your purchase appointment. It is preferred you do not handle your current rats prior to leaving for your appointment. This helps to keep from transferring pathogens between our rats.
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
All Purchases are final.
As of Jan 2017, MBLU stopped receiving return or rescues. This was put into effect after the CDC opened an investigation on the Hantavirus in the Midwest. Rat health is priority #1.
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 rescues, or take them to a city/county animal control center.
Within 30 days of purchase, MBLU will exchange sick rats only
Although MBLU never knowingly sells a sick rat, rats that are relocated are very stressed and stress can cause a mycoplasma flair up or other respiratory illness, ear infections, or many other medical conditions. Within 30 days of purchase, contact MBLU immediately If your rat is sneezing often or appears sick in any way. We can then discuss care options including veterinary needs or exchange for another MBLU rat. MBLU will never be responsible for any veterinarian expenses. For health safety of Misty Blue Rattery, all exchanged sick rats will be culled.
