@  lollyh : (23 April 2014 - 04:57 PM) lol ok rtg.my lips are sealed. :D
@  Caryn : (23 April 2014 - 11:31 AM) lol
@  raggedtoothg... : (22 April 2014 - 07:10 PM) My parents don't know yet. There will just be an extra "unadoptable" rat hehe... I will break the news slowly after they have fallen in love with her. So no posting on my FB!
@  lollyh : (22 April 2014 - 02:58 PM) seriously rtg.did you get her.aww....yay :yay: . now my babies can play with your baby. :boogie:
@  Caryn : (22 April 2014 - 12:08 PM) Woohoo! congRATS
@  raggedtoothg... : (22 April 2014 - 09:48 AM) Doesn't matter, she's mine now bwahahaha!
@  Caryn : (22 April 2014 - 07:56 AM) Not even slightly tempted I'm afraid. I'm an earist - dumbos yank on my heart strings :P And I have enough white fuzzbutts around already lol
@  lollyh : (21 April 2014 - 08:39 PM) shame caryn.the little BEW will be all alone then. :ratsadlook:
@  raggedtoothg... : (19 April 2014 - 10:50 PM) Caryn, I have been organising a home for 2 of Ronel's 3, including the mini-Apple in Durbs so she might be flying down next month if it all works out. That leaves just one lone BEW looking for a home...
@  Caryn : (19 April 2014 - 06:54 PM) lol Tempting, but having a mini-Apple around would just be a little heartbreaking. I like all my girls to be different :)
@  katelit : (19 April 2014 - 06:16 PM) Caryn, why live vicariously? You can't seriously keep on with fewer rats than me! :bump:
@  raggedtoothg... : (18 April 2014 - 11:19 PM) But Ronel has 3 babies available, how do I choose which 2? That's it, I'm disabling photos on my Facebook lol
@  raggedtoothg... : (18 April 2014 - 10:57 PM) It's just that mine are all over 18 months, they need some livening up :P
@  lollyh : (18 April 2014 - 09:08 PM) Hehe or you could just come take your 2 hooligan god babies for a few days. Wink
@  Caryn : (18 April 2014 - 05:32 PM) Moral high ground be damned lol I think you need to take the mini-Apple so I can visit and live vicariously through you :P
@  raggedtoothg... : (18 April 2014 - 03:47 PM) I'm seriously tempted to buy breeder bubs and tell my parents they're rescues. Hmm, to take the moral high ground or not...
@  raggedtoothg... : (17 April 2014 - 12:40 PM) YAY!
@  Janelle : (17 April 2014 - 12:07 PM) Hey all. Please note that I have extended th Facebook Autumn competition to the end of this month. So there is still loads of time to enter if you still wish or just to round up people to vote. x
@  Caryn : (16 April 2014 - 12:27 PM) The headspot girl available reminds me so much of my old girl Apple :wub:
@  raggedtoothg... : (15 April 2014 - 08:35 PM) NO Ronel, don't do this to me :P
