Sorry to hijack a thread, but it is on topic... :lol:

Looking at some of these pictures, I'm wondering now if our Ratatouille is agouti? I've never really thought about it before, because she's just our gorgeous girl, but I'm curious, now! I really should pay more attention to colorations and whatnot :lol:

Awww, ok. The reason is because I'm to be fostering two girls that I was informed were that color. I have never heard that word before so I was curious what my girls would be looking like. :]

you'll have to give us some pictures once they're settled.

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).

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:

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.

Thanks for that :D

Thanks! :D 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.

Ahhh she's rusting as she ages then. Can we get a pic of her head next time? I love ratty faces. :D
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:
