seems colours are getting hard to find round by me as every where we went they were all white and i was determined not to have a white one lolol
i had seen one but he had been sold he was a lush colour id say grey but no doubt he was blue lol

lol there are a good few types of blue now.
I think because they were in high demand from people they have overbred them in the pet trade so u see them virtually all the time around here.
I saw a beautiful one the other day but i prefer rats from breeders and pay the extra money.
I travelled to Leeds for my pair of platinums spinner smile

after reading up ect if we do have anymore they will be from a breeer or at least from a home as i think they are handled more
this was the mistake i made buying from a shop that apparentley specialised in them
but we are making progress they shared some of buffys tuna last night and were coming to the edge of their cage to get it and edging a little closer to us each time

Their homes look great - makes me realise loads of people don't give theirs enough to play with to keep busy.

That is so true, they need a good variety of different toys as they are so intelligent.
I used to rotate their toys every couple of weeks :)
