Ratlover - please don't advocate breeding. Mods, stop me if I'm out of line, but as the "Caring for Accidental Litters" section states:

"Please do not discuss intentional breeding here - We are not experienced breeders, and cannot offer advice on breeding."

I would assume that goes for the whole forum. It's never a good idea to breed just because a certain rat is harder to find. Never, ever.

*steps off soapbox*

meggybooze - have you checked local shelters, rescues, Craigslist, Petfinder, local breeders, etc? I believe you're in the UK, so I'm not sure if you have access to CL or Petfinder, so maybe someone in the UK has better ideas as to where you can look.

I think personality is often more important than looks.... Don't discredit a possible new rattie just because she has fur. :)

Hairless (usually double rex) rats often have a lot more medical issues than our regular standard coated rats. Eye and skin problems are very common. :(

What kind of skin problems? Is it just that they are more easily able to get scratched during rough rattie wrestling or that just more suseptible to skin irritants since not having the extra fur? One of my new babies is double rex and was just curious...

I'm happy with any rats, I bought mine from family run pet stores, who are good breeders. Especially my little Addoface, he is beautiful.

Not many rat breeders here in London either, I'm always on the look out here for UK members giving rats up for adoption :)
