@  Rattieroos : (15 June 2017 - 06:26 PM) Hey Lolly, I'm just in terrible pain now with winter properly setting in. It's like it's quadrupled and especially in my hands. Makes me want to cry, not just from pain but not being able to do things. Hope all fine with you *hugs*

@  administrator : (09 June 2017 - 03:07 PM) Everyone who needs to can have a refresher on the rules here: http://forums.ratano.../3-forum-rules/
@  Tails : (09 June 2017 - 02:54 PM) @lollyh, hope Winston is ok now?
@  Tails : (09 June 2017 - 02:54 PM) @happyrat: I don't delete accounts, but if you want to rather just have your account deactivated, please PM me and I will sort it out. However I don't recommend it because really the only one who suffers in the end from this decision are any rats of yours who would benefit from advice given here (not in the chat box, but in the forums). Tails, RN Admin.
