I have nothing but good things to say about Little Paws Rattery. It was somewhat difficult to find a good breeder in the midwest area. My first two ratties were from the hunger games litter, Haymitch, or Mitchie as we called him, and Gale, but we referred to him as Dash. Mitchie was definitely the more outgoing of the two but they were both very sweet. Both Mitchie and Dash have passed away but I had all intentions of adopting again from Little Paws. The temperaments of the babies are outstanding. I've purchased rats from stores, gotten from rescues and "whoops" litters but none of them had the temperament that the rats from Little Paw Rattery has. You can tell they are handled a lot from the start but they are also bred for a good temperament as well. We just recently went back to adopt two more ratties from the Supernatural litter. We've only had them for a few days but both, Rakshasa and Wraith are very healthy and super friendly. It was definitely worth the drive. I would recommend them to anyone looking to get some very sweet rats.
"Awesome Place, ordered a larger order and got everything I asked for! It was perfect! Thank you again! My ratties love their new hammocks!"
"Love Little Paws! We have adopted 4 rats and they are the sweetest boys ever. Little Paws is also always willing to answer any questions you have!"
-Jacon Jamie White
"I helped my daughter adopt two girls and we have had the most awesome experience. Kayla is great to work with. My daughter is so happy with her girls. Thank you so very much!"
-Robert Brown II
"I was first impressed with Kayla of Little Paws Rattery by how easy going she was with answering questions online. I was bugging her LONG before she knew who I was or seen I was a fan of her site and FB page, lol Then, seeing her easily cooperate with another breeder for me showed me a quality of professional I had been looking for. Getting pictures, video's and updates of my baby Cakers was especially nice and extremely helpful since my little guy is a little special and I needed to do a little learning before he came home! She was so informative and allotted me ample time when we met. I might have drove her a little batty with my on the spot questions and WHOLE ratty history, lol O.o :P She was such a delight and very knowledgeable! Excellent qualities in a breeder! She never made me feel rushed, either. I would highly recommend this rattery to ANYBODY and especially my friends and family. Thank you."
"I adopted my two boys this last February. I found Little Paws after health issues cause quarantines at several Wisconsin breeders, making it difficult to adopt in my state. Kayla was absolutely wonderful. She is very knowledgeable and professional and clearly loves her work. Her screening process is thorough and I feel very confident in her breeding program. The boys are healthy and happy, and I will absolutely go to Little Paws Rattery for any future adoptions! It was totally worth the drive."
"I can't speak highly enough of Little Paws Rattery and the owner, Kayla. The constant updates, pictures, and videos. The large amount of time spent socializing these wonderful little creatures. It's incredible to see the amount of passion put into this endeavor. Once you finally meet your new little baby rat, you can see all the work put forth in a tiny, adorable package. I love our boys, Bane and Bronson. Most recently, we got our naked girl, Millie. And very soon we will be getting our new baby boy, Bastion. Thank you so much for what you do."
"I adopted my two girls from Little Paws Rattery around a year ago, they are from the Hades x Zeldaborne litter and they are the sweetest little things I've ever met. The adoption process was very well put together and while my girls grew up I got continuous updates and tips from the breeders. Even after I received my girls, Little Paws Rattery continues to give me advice and tips when I need it and it is super helpful. They are very loving towards their rats, they do a great job of socializing the babies and keeping them healthy while they grow and they work hard to make sure their babies go to good deserving homes. I'm very glad I decided to adopt from such a great rattery. :) "
"I got my first rats from her (this time around, had them before years ago), they were among the best rats I've had temperament and health wise. Kayla's a great person to work with, very knowledgeable, and answers questions in a timely manner. I would, and will, get rats from her again."
-Melodie Brewster Owner of Smerfy Smerf Rattery
"I was, at first, hesitant about adopting from another state, but I couldn't have asked for a better experience."
"Great breeder and she is very knowledgeable with genetics. I have a beautiful mink marble boy from her, who has turned out to be very squishy and sweet! Thank you!"
-Sandi Lucero Owner of Bratty Rattery
If I could give more than 5 stars to Little Paws Rattery, I would. From the application process to the actual adoption it was a positive experience.
Since it was my first time adopting a pair of rats I was nervous and did a lot of research and visiting breeders, pet stores, feeders and rescues in the area (I'm in MInneapolis MN) and while I found a few people I liked a lot, I ran into some really awful situations that made me super nervous to take the leap. When I found Little Paws Rattery and talked to the owner, most of my anxieties were put at ease for the reasons below:
- She is a registered AFRMA and NARR breeder.
- She is very responsive to messages and active on her website and social media. I really liked how she posted pictures and video of her cage set up so you could see her little critters lived a comfortable and happy life.
- She only has one litter at a time so that she can give them the proper care and attention they need and she posts regular videos of herself handling, playing and cuddling the little ones regularly so you know that they are used to being handled.
-The application for adpotion is very thorough, you can tell she really cares about who she sells her babies to.
- She made it very clear to me that I could ask her any questions and I took full advantage of that, probably took too much of an advantage as I still ask her questions now and again (first time rat mom paranoia haha :)) As annoying as I'm sure I have been to her, she has never let on and has always taken time to give me a thorough and thoughtful answer.
- Lastly, she will deliver long distances for what I think is a very fair fee. I live about 4 hours or so from her and I paid for her to meet me half way.
When I finally got the girls I was not disappointed in the least. The girls were well adjusted and took to me fairly quickly and I fell in love with them day one. They are seriously SO SWEET. I'm now pretty sure I will be a rat mom for life. I hope LIittle Paws stays around because I don't really care to to find anywhere else to adopt from in the future. The payment for delivery and even a bit of a drive is well worth the peace of mind and the wonderful pups you get to bring home.
Thanks again! <3
"Little Paws is probably the BEST rattery ever to work with. They helped with SO much no matter how far down the road, the quality of their rats far exceeds my expectations as well. Healthy, happy, friendly, well socialized, and so many beautiful colors and fur types to choose from. I won't go anywhere else. ♥"

"Got two hairless girls who are very healthy and so affectionate. When I'm in the market for babies again I will definitely be in touch..."
"Have to update now that I've now gotten a total of 3 babies from little paws rattery. Still amazing."
- Christina Hancock
"Love this rattery! Just got two little hairless boys from here even at a young age the rats are happy, healthy, and friendly. The owners are nice enough to take time out of there day and answer all my questions and even were able to bring them to my house! Thank you so much for everything maybe we can get more babies in a few years ;)!
As a update my boys brothers were returned to the rattery and I was offered to give them a home. Even as busy as they were for holidays we were able to meet and I got to bring my new boys home for Christmas! There old owner didn't have much time for them but they worked with them at the rattery and the new boys came to us total sweethearts speaks volumes for how well bred and well cared for they are. Again thank you for my new additions!"

"We adopted three lovely little boys (Crackle, Civic, & Patriot) who are very sweet and lovable! You can tell there is a lot of love and time put into caring for these little ones before they go to their new homes-I will definitely be getting in touch when we are in the market for more babies"
- Ellie Roland
"Wanted to tell you about our special boy Xavier who we got from you 3yrs ago. Yep, 3 yrs! Eventho he's an eater, he's skin and bones now. He's losing the use of his back legs. But he can't get enough of attention and is to date, the loudest rat we've had when it comes to bruxing and bobbles those sweet eyes. Since he can clean himself easier when on my lap, playtime has become clean and snuggle time and he still takes time to groom me! Lol He's also the healthiest rat we've ever had as well. I hope you have future customers see this so they know what wonderful quality rats you breed. Thank you for my sweet boy :)"
- Jen Vandevoord
"I recently adopted a baby from Little Paws. They are the sweetest people and care about their pets and adopters. I will be adopting from them again. My baby is playful and happy. Not to mention completely adorable! They are great with responding to any questions or concerns. I had a lot of questions and they always responded quickly and with great helpful information. I am a happy member of the Little Paws Rattery family!"

Thank you ladies!"
-Nastassia Gilliam owner of Omaha Blue Rattery
My two boys from Little Paws are some of the sweetest animals I've ever met in my life! The whole adoption process was so positive and well-managed, especially with the cute photo and video updates to make the wait feel shorter, and I could tell the moment I brought my dudes home that they'd been incredibly well socialized and cared for. They were sweet and inquisitive the moment I took them out of their carrier, and in hardly any time at all everybody was full of kisses, bruxing, and cuddles. The breeders themselves are wonderful, they were super friendly from the get-go and had no problem answering any of my questions. If I ever decide that Sans and Papy need some more cagemates, I'll know where to go!
"I like Little Paws Rattery. They are very friendly and professional service.."
"Healthy and great temperament, very friendly lovable."
"I'm not sure why I haven't reviewed! ILPR makes some good little ratties. Before I even adopted from ILPR, they would happily answer my questions about the rats that I had gotten from another rattery. It shows that they care about all ratties, not just their own."
"We could not be more pleased with our 2 sweet boys and the entire adoption process. Everything was handled very professionally and any time I had a question, a speedy response was made! Our boys are social, well-handled, healthy, and OH so precious! We could not be happier to have adopted from this rattery"
"They are very professional and answer questions with knowledgeable answers. They also give advice in a friendly manner. Their rats are top notch sweet and social. They love getting updates and will still help you after the sale is finished."
"Got our free small hammock today. Is really well made and they love it! Thank you for giving us some fun guessing games with prizes! Planning on buying more from you guys!"
