haha! Ratty's markings have changed very slightly as she's aged (she's almost two, now). The smudge on her back used to be just dark brown looking, now it has some reddy brown in and around it. When it first started changing a few months ago, I thought it was porphyrin, but it didn't wash off :lol: She has one other smudge at the base of her tail. That has always been there.twitch said:yes, donna, ratty is an aqouti. i think she would be considered an agouti mismarked bareback even (that is if the smudge on her back is fur coloring on not dinner.... i have a himi that changes her markings with each meal so sometimes little smudges can be deceiving).
Thanks!Stephanie said:OMG!! your Ratty looks so much like my Sugar Bear!!! She is definitely n agouti and soooo cute!!!
Thanks! We love her to bits. She hasn't always had so much red in her, which is possibly why I've never really thought about it that much... she used to be more grey/brown.lilspaz68 said:She's beautiful Donna. Yeah I would say mismarked bareback. She is what breeder's call a bright agouti. Lighter and reddish. My Rennie is not. but we love them all. :heart:
I'll see what I can find... if not, I'll take one later for you. Right now, I need to scoot and get some tidying up done... we have a house guest arriving in a few hours :lol:lilspaz68 said:Ahhh she's rusting as she ages then. Can we get a pic of her head next time? I love ratty faces.
