The Rats of Alpha Centauri





 

 

Welcome to the Website of Alpha Centauri Rats!

My name is Victor. I run a rattery in Whetstone on the Northern line on the North of London in the United Kingdom. My primary aim in breeding is to improve the longevity, health and personality/temperament of the lines I breed and hopefully a few along the way will be show winners as well. I supply rats and also Lab rats for medical research aims but not for medical tests. The laboratories use the highest ethical standards and analyse their health parameters with ELISA kits, antibodies and PCR.

On this website you could also see a lot of rats with the Sprague Dawley and Wistar breeds.

Alpha Centauri was inspired by the late Douglas Adam's book 'The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy' with one of the more well know phrases from the book being.....

'In those days spirits were brave, the stakes were high, men were real men, women were real women and small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri were real small furry creatures from Alpha Centauri.'

The rat-room has the nickname of "The Restaurant at the End of the Universe" because they all eat better than me and this is in keeping with the Hitchhikers theme.

I currently breed towards British Blue, Golden Siamese/Himalayan and Wheaten Burmese based variety fancy rats in normal and dumbo ear and rex and straight coat. The British blue based line can be traced back to the first ever litter I bred. The large majority of my dumbo rats can be traced back to their American origins and I have 15+ generations on some parts of the line. I almost always have other varieties of rats as well as part of breeding for the varieties I am aiming for. I primarily breed my rats as pets for health and temperament.

See my Current Litters Pages for more information on what kittens I have available.
