Re: To breed or not?

to me it seems selfish to breed because we want to carry on a line of say, our favourite rat's DNA. Feel like I should point out that's not how it works with ethical breeding (in case anyone interprets it that way) I had an amazing rescue buck, perfect temperament and wonderful health up until his ...

Re: Kira has got herself a sex change! HELP!

a little bit OT but ... Anyhoo, you didn't upset me as such, you just need to remember that ratty families - like human families - dont always stick to the "2.4 children nuclear family fly the nest at 21" stereotype, and deviation from that don't necessarily mean any immoriality commited ...
