Projects At KaiZen

I work primarily with JLine Rats, a 20yo line of rats bred for pocket puppy temperaments.

In addition to being a breeder, I take pride in the health and well-being of all my rats and treat them all like the family members they are. Any rats going to new homes must pass temperament and health tests first and foremost.

I offer a lifetime support guarantee for any rats adopted from KaiZen Rodentry. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or problems with your rats.

This page will be updated with various information on rat projects being worked on at KaiZen Rodentry. Clicking on the names of each project will bring you to a page that displays photos, litters and progress updates on the line. Updates will be made as soon as they are available. Please be patient if some names are not clickable yet, as they are still a WIP project.



This is the first line and project in KaiZen's Rattery. I received 2 girls in late '21, initially as pets. After some research and hmm-hawing over whether or not to breed rats, I finally decided I would start with a Silvermane line in black and blue.



While Velveteen wasn't initially planned, I quickly fell in love with it. I received the sweetest Velv Siamese boy late '21 who melted my heart. He is the sweetest, most playful and inquisitive creature, not to mention soft and cuddly, to boot.



Pocket Puppies

My ultimate goal even before I got my first rats, if I were to ever breed, was to breed for pocket puppy like temperaments. My goal for this line is to eventually breed biddable, dog-like temperaments for each rat that comes from it.
