Now that everything seems to be well with linking to this page from my website, I am beginning my first article to post here. It is titled, "How to find a good, responsible breeder."  Here are the first couple of paragraphs.

If you are thinking about getting a rat for the first time, or looking to get more rats, but would like to know how to find a good breeder, I hope this article will help. I cannot over-emphasize the importance of thoroughly researching breeders! There are SO many elements involved with breeding good rats, than just putting a pair together to raise a litter. Sadly, there are numerous unscrupulous individuals posing as good breeders or trying to sell you a "rare" color or type of rat and charging outrageous prices! The internet makes it much easier for these unethical types to fool a prospective buyer.  You and your family could regret not choosing the right breeder!

Once you have spent time to research fancy rats to be certain they are the pets for you and your family, then the search begins. There are many factors to consider, and you need to arm yourself with knowledge. That means be prepared to ask the breeder questions. The breeder shouldn’t mind taking the time to answer your questions. After all, they should want to have their prospective adopters as knowledgeable as possible.

My next post will have a list of questions that you might consider asking the breeder/s you are considering adopting (purchasing) from. The article in it's entirety will be found on my website sometime soon.
