@  robynlyn : (18 September 2014 - 11:04 AM) i like naming mine after people who sang rat songs: i have billy corgan, jack white, and next one will be astrid. :yogie: :yogie:
@  KayK : (17 September 2014 - 04:02 PM) Hehehe I know almost nothing about crochet but my grandfather's sister used to visit and crochet. I used to sit and watch. That's the only thing which stuck! :ratlol:
@  Tails : (17 September 2014 - 04:00 PM) ahh ok I'm still learning crochet :P
@  KayK : (17 September 2014 - 01:55 PM) Used a lot in those crochet hats (beanies)?
@  KayK : (17 September 2014 - 01:52 PM) Puff stitch
@  Tails : (17 September 2014 - 11:05 AM) Puff? I don't know that crochet reference? :)
@  KayK : (17 September 2014 - 08:37 AM) Puff maybe?
@  Tails : (17 September 2014 - 08:04 AM) lol yea that's what making me feel reserved about it lol
@  raggedtoothg... : (16 September 2014 - 11:24 PM) I bet everyone would think it's from Lilo & Stitch. Like with me thinking NiMH was from the book!
@  Tails : (16 September 2014 - 12:00 PM) haha no that one is still to be named :P thinking of "stitch" (crochet theme) but going to give it more thought
@  raggedtoothg... : (16 September 2014 - 08:41 AM) So one of your rats is called Bub 3?
@  Tails : (16 September 2014 - 07:58 AM) I named my new bubs :) Names in my sig :D
@  ronelrat : (13 September 2014 - 05:30 PM) Its a black husky which started to roan so only looks blue. I did a rescue of some of these local huskies a few years ago. We paid almost R3000 to get all the breeding stock from a breeder. Six months later she was fully stocked again and asked if we wanted to buy her "last remaining rats" (again) :ratjustice:
@  raggedtoothg... : (13 September 2014 - 04:49 PM) She does have husky, but they are local husky so nothing we can do about it. We wanted to get them but she is keeping some back to carry on breeding so it would be pointless.
@  lollyh : (12 September 2014 - 05:37 PM) Here is one i saw just now,are these pics off the net or does she actually have pretty blazed Russian blues & Essex/roan :huh: , http://www.gumtree.c...150910000602909
@  CaraLudick : (12 September 2014 - 10:34 AM) Glad I'm not the only nutter who looks up rats on gumtree even though I'm at maximum capacity :ratlol:
@  Tails : (11 September 2014 - 08:14 AM) @ronelrat yup thats what I mean, they bug EVERYONE who contacts them :banghead: :grr:
@  Caryn : (10 September 2014 - 09:52 PM) +1 to Settican. There are so many dumbos out there from broken contracts, a mutation is a bit of an extreme assumption rather than the obvious.
@  ronelrat : (10 September 2014 - 08:59 PM) I e-mailed them. They wanted to know if im a breeder because they want more people supplying them... :/
@  Settican : (10 September 2014 - 05:12 PM) Natural mutation seems really unlikely? Considering that in the past a fair few people have broken their contracts.
