Whiskery Welcome from the AristoRats!


Hi! Welcome to the homepage of Sarah and the Chew Crew....AristoRats' Rattery!

We are located in Northern Illinois.

I breed rats as pets first. Most of them are also show quality. I have shipped in rats from Washington State, Florida, and California, as well as obtaining them from Canada and locations across the U.S. My goal: To produce the healthiest, sweetest-tempered, most beautiful rats in the world. I specialize in marked dumbo in several colors and drop-dead gorgeous dark siamese. Soon to come will also be siamese dumbo in seal point and russian blue point.

If you wish to add some furry friends to your household, or if you just wanna talk rats, feel free to email me. RistoRat@aol.com
