OVER THE BRIDGE

This page is to honor and remember our rats gone over the bridge

TETRA

July 2, 2016 - May 20, 2019

Black Bershire

Tetra and Zinni were the first two rats we had together.  We adopted them at 6 weeks of age in August of 2016.
From August until February, Tet and Zinni were the only rats we had.

Zinni unfortunately suffered from chronic genetic respiratory infections, and eventually developed lung cancer, and passed very young as a result.  She was Jacob's heart rat.
Tetra went on to be one of our oldest rats ever, and ultimately we lost her to generic age-related issues.

PARIS

November 2016 - November 2, 2018

Black Hooded

In February 2017, we brought Paris into our home after finding her posted for sale on Facebook.
Just a week later, we brought Dot home, who later became better known as "Dooter," due to the noise she made due to her genetic chronic respiratory issues.

In April, we also added Lilly to the mix. Lilly was timid and shy, but the most beautiful and sweet girl.

JONATHAN JOESTAR (AKA: JOJO)
February 2017 - April 12, 2019
Black Hooded

In late April of 2017, we added JoJo to our mischief, after also finding him posted for sale on Facebook. JoJo was the first boy rat we had, and we were so impressed with his chill demeanor and love of cuddles, we knew he was with us to stay.

Since JoJo was our only boy, we  soon purchased Dio to be JoJo's cage mate. 
Dio went on to be our founding buck, fathering the October 2017 litter.
Both boys will forever hold a very special place in our hearts!

TANEISHA

April 1, 2017 - September 7, 2018

Black Satin Hooded

In May of 2017, Keisha and Taneisha were entrusted to our care by my sister who had come to a point in her life where pets were not an option. 

We gladly took the girls in (who were Lilly's nieces), and welcomed them to our fastly growing group!

Keisha became one of our most memorable girls, and Taneisha was our founding doe!

JOSEPH JOESTAR (AKA: "JO")
October 1, 2017 - April 13, 2019
Black Satin Hooded

In October 2017, we had our first litter.

Taneisha was our founding doe, and Dio our founding buck.  Of their 13 offspring, we kept four.
L and Suzy were never bred, although two of their sisters went to RavynMoon Rattery where they helped continue the lineage.
Jo was paired with both Paris and Jolyne but never had success.

Gio sired Jolyne's July 2019 litter.

GIORNO (AKA: "GIO")

October 1, 2017 - February 29, 2020
Satin Albino

Lucy was the first rat brought into our rattery with the express purpose of adding her to our breeding program.

Unfortunately, her first and only litter were all stillborn, but Lucy lived out her life with us here at LFNP as Bree's beloved heart rat.

JOLYNE

October 12, 2018 - February 10, 2020

Chocolate Satin Rex Hooded

Jolyne, Dingus, and Illumi were the next rats brought in with the intent of helping along our breeding projects. 
Jolyne came from RavynMoon Rattery, out of a breeding from one of our girls they had taken from our October 2017 litter, so in a sense, we just brought her back home!

 
Jolyne and Illumi were instrumental in bettering and furthering our goals.
Poor Dingus, much like Lucy, was met with complete litter failure, but she also lived out her life happily as our personal pet.

Pretty Delilah came to us from Terra-Fauna Exotics as an emergency foster mom for Dingus' litter in early 2019.
Unfortunately, despite Delilah's attempts, all the babies from Dingus' litter passed, but Delilah had found her way into our hearts and our mischief, and she became a permanent resident. 
Delilah was our go-to "nanny," she was so patient with the babies, and seemed to genuinely enjoy their company.  Raising litters hasn't been the same without her!

Schmee%204_edited.jpg

SCHMEE (AKA "IVY")

May 7, 2019 - August 9, 2020

Agouti-Point Siamese Dumbo Rex

Schmee was the first Siamese here at LFNP, and one of our most beloved girls. She came to us from RavynMoon Rattery, and was the mother of our March 2020 litter.
Sadly, Schmee passed from complications of a brain tumor.
Speck, a daughter of Schmee and one of our holdbacks from the litter, and Bree's favorite, sadly, suffered from neurological issues and was assisted across the bridge to avoid suffering. 
Josuke sadly displayed incredibly aggressive tendencies, and was lead across the bridge to avoid his own mental suffering as well as the harm of ourselves and our other rats.

BUELL

October 21, 2018 - October 10, 2020

Aussie Cinnamon Hooded

Doofus came to us rather unexpectedly. We went to Indianapolis to pick pick up Dingus and Illumi, and ended up taking Doof home as well. 
Buell also joined us in the fall of 2018, a special boy from our friends at Underworld Rodentry
Sadly, neither boy was able to be used in our breeding program, but these two BFFs enjoyed long lives as our beloved pets.

Polnareff was our holdback male from our November 2019 litter, and the father of our March 2020 litter.
Pearl was our holdback female from the November 2019 litter, and was the mother of our June 2020 litter.
While they both left us too early, their legacies live on in their offspring, and we count ourselves blessed to have known and loved them both.

Black Satin Rex Berkshire

Gon, Killua, Leorio, and Holly were our holdbacks from our April 2019 litter.
Holly was the dam of our November 2019 litter.

All four of these big gorgeous rats had personalities to die for. They certainly helped us continue the legacy of Illumi.

RUBY

January 1, 2019 - March 6, 2021

Black Marten Berkshire

Johnny and Ruby came to our rattery on the same day in the spring of 2018, as we had intentions of starting a Marten line. Sadly, Johnny displayed some minor neurological issues, and so he was never bred, and Ruby aged out before we found another suitable male for her. Both rats lived long and wonderful lives here with us at LFNP, and we miss them dearly.

Pippin, Dipper, Jotaro, and Moe Moe were our only four babies from the July 2019 litter, and of course we kept them all.
Jotaro was the father of the June 2020 litter, and while none of his siblings were ever bred, they were very much loved during their time with us as pets.

Dipper and Jo both passed away peacefully at home in their beds, while both girls were helped across the bridge after complications from mammary tumors.

Opal was one of our holdbacks from the June 2020 litter, but unfortunately she developed uterine cancer at a young age. Opal was such a calm and polite soul, she is missed so greatly!
