Colorado Rat Breeder | Camarattery

Website Updated June.10.2024

We do have babies available!
FYI...Please be aware that breeding season stops in July & August in the USA. Rats loose fertility in hot weather, so babies are scarce during that time. If you are going to adopt, now is the time. Breeding season doesn't really pick up again until the fall when the weather is cooler.

-2.28.2024 Dwarf

Dwarf are the hardest to breed for because they are so tiny, so you never get a big litter. Breeders almost always keep them because there aren't enough to make more babies from. I have been breeding them for many years and I never have very many myself. But I am happy to say I finally have 20 of th…

- 8.19.2023 Velveteens & Rex

I changed the Velveteens in the Golden Siamese line to Rex. When the line came from NY their was a Double "Velveteen" we were told. Turns out she had a Velveteen gene and a Rex gene. So both genes were floating around for a few years. And what I got was Rex. Not velveteen. This is why mine curl so w…

- 11.3.19 Revamp

I have ended my Russian Blue hooded line. And I have redone my Whiteside line with 95% new blood. The lines were just too sassy for me and my adopters. And I wouldn't let that continue. Things are now back on the sweet and loveable.

While humans can get it, yes, the risk according to the CD…

- Why Adopt From Cama?

Most people come to me because I am one of the oldest breeders in the country. And my lines are some of  the most established lines in the US. So that eliminates the need to worry about such issues like bad temperaments, skittish animals or tumors because they were bred out 20 generations ago. Peopl…
