This is Lulu, I'm not sure if she is a siamese or a himalayan... if what i've read of himalayans is true being that their dark areas are a tad lighter than the siamese, then i believe she is the latter of the two. Anyway here are some pictures of my little friend, I hope you enjoy her as much as i do :)

Himi's start out white and turn points later. Smeezes start out beigey and lighten/darken to points. Is she creamy or white? The top two pictures seem to indicate both. :lol:

What sort of cage/shavings are you keeping her on?

She's a siamese, and a very pretty one at that!

You need to always be aware of what wood bedding you're using for your rats, since pine/cedar are toxic and must be avoided. Aspen is a good wood shaving, and many rat owners use it.

Also - do you only have one rat? Rats are extremely social and always need a friend. Rats love company and being in groups.

well thank you very much, she'll be very pleased to hear that someone other than myself thinks shes pretty :D

I had just the one rat until i joined this forum lol, then i was hearing about how they should always be kept in pairs or more, so i went out and got her a friend.... piggle :)

and i'm fully aware that pine and cedar shavings are toxic, i made sure it was neither of the two, i've owned rodents my whole life so "pine & cedar = bad" is pretty much embedded into the back of my brain lol.
