My name is Amy, I am married to a wonderful supportive husband of 25 years. My husband Tim and I are the ones who run the rattery. He does a huge amount of work for the rattery. And he is a very important part of what we do. You probably won't see him posting on our FB page as facebooking isn't his thing, but he does a huge part of the physical work load of the rattery at home, and he has many years of hard work invested in this rattery. I am the genetics person. I put the pairs together, plan that out, run the website and do the social networking.

In 1998 we began breeding fancy rats but it was just a small thing and we didn't continue since we couldn't find healthy rats at the time. We got our first computer in October of 2004, which is when Camarattery was created and my husband named the rattery. We started collecting our current lines at that time in 04 when we found other like minded breeders on the internet.

I have also been breeding pet birds since 1983 and continue to do so now with my husbands help.

Not only do I love animals and breeding them, but I love building a community of like minded people. The people are just as much fun. I've built some very strong friendships with my adopters and those relationships have lasted for years. Our adopters mean a lot to us and we couldn't do this without them. Most of our adopters are on the Colorado Rat Community Forum. And you can contact them and talk to them for references for us. This is a great group of people and I encourage you to join in on the conversations the group has to offer. Most breeders cannot offer a community full of hundreds of references like we can. And that makes for a strong trusting relationship with our adopters because there are actual people to back what I say. And anyone can check with my references. Also please see our Testimonials page for comments from happy adopters.

I am a very straight forward, clear concise person. So I say things exactly the way they are. I am very to the point about everything. You will pick up on that throughout my website. I tend not to sugar coat my wording, I say things very point blank.

Why Adopt From Us?

Most people come to us because We are one of the oldest breeders in the country. And our 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 30 generations ago. People have the satisfaction of knowing every baby they get from Camarattery has been bred for health, temperament and longevity. We do not have pet shop stock that is hit and miss with those qualities.
