About Cole

Cole is one of the babies from my first Brandywine rats litter. He's a gorgeous rat, not the most people oriented but completely handleable. He's named after River Cole which flows near Coleshill. The name Cole means 'dark one'. He's a confident, cheeky little soul.


Awards/Critiques

MRC Christmas Show, Brigstock, 6th December 2008 - 3rd of 6 in agouti adult class
Good colour. Rather dark on back. Some silvering evident. Good belly, nice feet. Good bold eyes. Nice thick tail - with a blue patch or two! Good size & type. (NM)

NERS Pet Initiative, Meldreth, 13th February 2010 - Buck over 18 months - 2nd of 2 . (AC)

NERS Pet Initiative, Meldreth, 13th February 2010 - Best Breeder Pet - 3rd of 10. Relaxed about being picked up. Happy to explore but got a little tetchy at times. Mostly interactive and jolly. Fit and in nice condition, though coat a bit long.(AC)

Cole was very unhappy in a show tank this time, but fine when taken out for judging and for cuddles. I'm not going to show him again.
