    Wow, that's too bad, I sure hope it lives. I would suggest Melafix added to the water to help ward off any infectious diseases.

I don't have a guinea pig but I love them. I have a baby boy hamster named Rory, before we got Rory my sister had a girl hamster named Creamy. I love animals and want to be a vet when I am older. I want to be a vet and hamster/ guinea pig breeder.

I just rescued a dog it is either a shih tzu or a lhapsa opso not sure. I was wondering if there were any distinct differences betweeen the two?

    I own both a lhasa and a shih tzu. A huge difference is the length of the legs. The shih tzu has much shorter legs.

    I've got a Lhapsa opso who's 11 weeks old and they're quite similar to a shih tzu.
  • Rosie Veg - 2014-01-10
    A Shih Tzu,(Sheed Zoo) has a smaller Muzzle,like the Pekinese,large eyes,and only has long legs if it's a reg sized Shih Tzu,a toy on will be short about 11' tall, about 9-16lbs and 9-16' long along their back. Males are always on the larger side. I hope this helps? Any q's just ask

We've had our Japanese Chin for about 1.5 years. She is a sweetie. The previous owner had her for about 3 years. My concern is that she had these scratching fits every couple of days. She starts barking and yelping until we go to her. She stops when we call her name or pet her. The previous owners gave us drops for her ears, but they do not help. Is this common?

    She is most likely demonstrating a food allergy. Ear infections, Scratching, hotspots, buttdragging or obsessive Paw licking are all symptoms. Just had yo put My girl on venison and potato diet!

I have a beautiful young female Russian Blue that bred with a grey Tabby. Her Kittens are beautiful and are reversed tabbies , silver blue light grey and are reversed tabbies with whithe stripes instead of black or dark stripes. The girls are gorgeous, with all the features of her HER. ONE HAS THE HEAD AND EARS AND SLIM BODY BUT NOT THE PINCH SMILE. THE OTHER HAS THE PINCH SMILE BUT IS TAKING AFTER THE FATHER WITH A ROUNDER HEAD AND STALKIER BODY BUT THE FACE FEATURES AND EVEN THE SOUNDS THEY MAKE WHEN THEY MIAO ARE SPECIFICALY RUSSIAN BLUE. VERY VOCAL LIKE THEIR MOTHER. DO I HAVE SOMETHING SPECIAL. CAN THEY BE RECOGNIZED AS SUCH . TO ME THEY ARE AND JUST THE FACT THAT THEY HAVE REVERSETABBIE MARKINGS MAKES THEM VERY DISTINGTIVE. CAN THEY BE SHOWN ANYWHERE. DOES ANY BODY KNOW OR EVEN SOLD AS UNIQUE AS THEY ARE_

    In order to show a cat, the cat has to be a recognized breed by the ACFA (American Cat Fanciers Association) or the TICA (The International Cat Association).  You would obviously have to be able too reproduce the kittens you have, have the markings, coloring, size etc stablaized to allow rules for points to be established.  This is a complicated and long term endeavor but you can write either organization and ask them and if interested, how you would go about it.
  • gesia Rosenberg - 2012-06-25
    THANKS FOR RESPONDING. IT IS AMAZING HOW STRONG THE RUSSIAN bLUE GENE IS. I WISH REALY WISH THEY COULD BE SHOWN SOMEWHERE. BUT THANKS FOR THE INFO.I DID SEE IN WILKAPEDIA THAT IN UK, AUSTRALIA AND ANOTHER COUNTRY THE SAME MIX ARE RECOGNIZED AS A NEW KIND OF RUSSIAN BLUE. THE rb GENETIC IS AMAZING. lIKE I SAY BEFORE. tHEY ARE ALL RUSSIAN bLUE IN ALL THE WAYS BUT THEIR FANCY COATS.

    Ms.Gesia Rosenberg, I know this is quite a few years late. But would you have pictures of your 'babies'? Did you sell any kittens? If so, may I ask:How much? And where are you? I'm in VA. 56 years old, been disabled since I was in car crash at 25. I would be interested in some (2?) of your kittens if you ever have more, and the price is right. (I have very little $,but a LOT of love.) Have 2 dogs, but they are 'daddies babies'! I love them, too, just not the same. Thank-you in advance, Kris Behrens

It's difficult to keep in a tank.
Strong light.
Need strong water flow.
It requires ideal calcium, magnesium, strontium for live and requires accurate water testing equipment. mainly white band disease can attack stag horn coral. Always take precaution to prevent disease,
only a expat can keep this type coral in the tank.

    Thank you for the information. Doesn't sound like an easy thing to do. Any suggestions?
  • joseph.bryan@dayco.com - 2014-01-12

I have 2 adult male cats - brothers about 2 1/2 years old. When they were kittens, they got along, but now they have stare-down contests which often lead to fighting. I'd think they were playing, but fur literally flies and one or both end up scratched. I'm afraid they will hurt each other badly. Is there any way to bring peace back to the household. We try to keep them apart space is limited.

    You could try crate training him, as they won't soil their crate because that's where they sleep. It can help teach them control.

When I and my dad got a MataMata Turtle he was as heavy as a piece of paper. He is now very hardy and eats from your hand. In the Book Tophero Son of Smilodon there is a matamata turtle and is a really good book. BTW the families matamata is named T-rex :)
