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 at your appointment. Rats can go home with you the same day!
First Appointment First Choice of Rats. There are no reservations, holds, or reserve on available rats. Breeder requests will have first availale appointments or may choose from those available at a later appointment.
Your Current Pets:
DO NOT BRING YOUR PETS TO YOUR PURCHASE APPOINTMENT!
If you have rats or other pets already at home, please leave them at home. You are not authorized to bring your current rats or other pets to meet their new companions. Please do not handle your current rats prior to leaving for your appointment. The "no pets, please don't handle your rats" clause helps to keep from transferring pathogens between our rats or other pets.
All new pets should be quarantined for at least two weeks before being introduced to other pets. For more information regarding quarantining rats, please visit http://www.afrma.org/quarantining.htm
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 all illness, growths (tumors/abscesses), or temperament related issues.
MBLU does not offer refunds or accept returns
All Purchases are final.
If you are no longer able to keep your rats for any reason, please find a friend to take them, sell them, search out a pocket pet rescues, or take them to a city/county animal control center.
Within 15 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 15 days of purchase, contact MBLU immediately If your rat is sneezing often, develops porphyrin around eyes or nose, develops a head tilt, or appears sick in any way. We can then discuss care options including homeopathic, veterinary, 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 euthanized.
At this time, MBLU does not serology test rats. MBLU has not had outside rats into the rattery since April 9, 2016. MBLU also has not shown any rats since June 25, 2016 and has been closed for return/rescue rats since Jan 1, 2017. All other ratteries in California tested negative through June 2018, including some MBLU rats purchased as pets or by other breeders.

Donations to MBLU Fund:
Donations to the MBLU Fund are always happily accepted! MBLU has 3 rescue animals being cared for long term even though the MBLU Rescue was closed Jan 2017. Our focus with MBLU Fund is to help those in need after tragic events such as fire, flood or earthquake. In 2018, MBLU Fund, MBLU, and MBLU clients were able to donate two Double Critter Nation cages with full setup to two families that lost their homes in the Woolsey fire. All monetary or used items donated (such as rat/rodent cages, bedding, houses, accessories, etc) are gifted to those in need or sold for a low fee to help cover expenses related to long term rescue animals in MBLU care. No MBLU Fund donations are used directly by Misty Blue Rattery.
