Re: Whats involved in running a rescue?

I'd also like to back up the 'ask for a donation' bit - I always offer a donation for any rescues I adopt, but it's up to the rescuer as to whether they accept it or not. A donation doesn't always have to be money either - I've given food or hammocks if they don't want money. It's nice as an adopter...

Re: New and frequent choking episodes

Re: someone please tell me im doing the right thing? PTS

Sorry about your girl - I can't tell you what's best for her, you're her 'mum' and you'll know when it's the right time for her I can give you my experience of a girly in a similar position and she basically made the decision for me, although she was lively and happy. Rammy had a tumour in her mouth...

Re: The big taste test..

I was given fair warning. I appreciate that and absolve Alison of all responsibility for the fact that despite being given due notice, I ignored the warning and recklessly read this when eating my breakfast. I may never eat again. I just snorted really loud at my desk - how do I explain that this w...

Re: John Hopewell Galvanised Clean out trays

How much are the paypal charges? Paypal really is the easiest and safest way to transfer money, and I'd be willing to pay a few extra pennies to cover the charge to you :) . Waiting a week for funds to transfer isn't a problem for me either :luck:

Re: I need a moan... hormonal rat

She bit Dad yesterday :o :( ... hard! He and Mum are trying their best to handle her as much as possible and are practicing picking her up and putting her down again as much as they can. Once she's out she's fine, but I think she's developing some definite cage territoriality unfortunately... it's s...
