Hi there, I breed the white crested guinea pigs in my home country (Czech Republic) and I am in Vancouver now for one year to improve my English. So I am looking around about the cavies you breed here too and I would like to gain some new information, experiences and contacts to breeders who are interested in this breed of cavies in this country to see yours pigs ... Thanks for your offers and reactions (please on my e-mail). Linda

My pet mouse died last month his name was Mouse I had him for almost 20 months- I came home and he had died with his eyes open and it almost looked like he was praying. I don't know why he died he was fine the day before. Did he suffer? My heart is so broken without my little boy.

    No, probably just fell asleep and went on to the whatever world.  I am sorry - it is hard to lose a friend.

    I had a mouse die recently and her eyes were open, as well. She had been having some health problems but had seemed find the night before. Unfortunately, because mice are so tiny, any illness or problem will take over very quickly. Also, 20 months for a mouse is a good age. They average less than 2 years typically. I can't tell you if he suffered or not, but he could have simply just died of old age. I'm so sorry for you loss.

    I am sorry for your loss. I just lost a mouse tonight and I am on here in my grief looking for answers.
  • Imogen - 2012-10-07
    I'm really sorry. I know it is very hard to lose a pet-I've lost 3 female mice, and my heart broke. I was so upset and in grief for ages about my girls. Just remember the fun you had together.

    The same happend to my little Cream. I was heart broken too she died with her eyes open and looked like she was praying just like yours but we buried her in the backyard and made her a little cardboard cross. We know we won't forget her and it really was a shock when we found her dead she was fine the night before.

I can't find any info as to a Jersey Wooly rabbit's wool can be used for fiber as it is with angora rabbits. If anyone knows please let me know. Also is their a difference between a Jersey Wooly and a Jersey Wooly Dwarf Angora rabbit?

    No the rabbit you got; Jersey Wooly, is a Jersey Wooly they are dwarf, some call them dwarf angoras. Yes the rabbit can be used for fur. You just won't get as much since the rabbit is smaller.
  • June - 2013-07-10
    It can be used as fiber but, like the last poster said, you don't get nearly as much as you need. I have 3 cashmere rabbits who I shear every summer and in order for me to get enough fiber for a decent length of yarn, I do a blend. The same can be done with Woolly fur but, it's a bit trickier than just plain fleece.

Hi guys, just thought I'd let you know that over here in Australia, a Jersey Woolly, is known as Jersey Woolly. Not a Dwarf Angora :) Thanks for the great info by the way. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks for letting us know! Maybe it used to be called a Dwarf Angora by some  groups at some point and is no longer used?

Just read Danielles message and my holland-lop Ginger also passed away this summer and miss her so much. She was the guard rabbit of the back yard, kept the cats off her grass or should I say flower beds
Miss her so much have raised a few lops and are all great animals should have large hutches to stretch out in.
To all the Holland Lop lovers the best for your future!

    Take your ferret to a veterinarian immediately.
  • Blacksheep - 2011-05-30
    Put the poor little thing down....
  • caty - 2011-08-11
    TAKE HER TO THE VET!
  • John Paul Blair - 2011-08-30
    I just found two of my ferrets profusely bleeding thick black blood from their back ends. I had to put them to sleep right away. Your ferret must also be be put down.
  • Ash Lee - 2012-03-24
    Oh my god... I am sorry, but your ferret probably won't last long. Please do not let him/her suffer. I wish you good luck, if it was mya choice your little one would be healthy and energetic in half a second.
  • DocRon - 2012-11-03
    Well you reived a near death animal, I would have done the same. First Vets are their for a reason. I know this can be a finantial problem and saddly a lot of Vets will turn you away if you cant pay. This nimal needs fluids at this point anit would be unethical for me to tell you give it a lactate ringer STAT. I mean no direspect to al the good vets out there. Now Ferrets need shots many the same as dogs. NO milkproducts and all raw fod ie. meats and fruit. Be careful some fruit ae bad. Educate your self before getting any animal. May the disgner in common keep you happy and healthy

    Is a ferret good with kids.
  • Clarice Brough - 2013-01-15
    You may want to take it to a veterinarian. It sounds like needs some medical  and possibly some nutritional attention.
  • nana nancy - 2013-07-03
    Have you got any photos of your ferret?

Hey there! I need some advice I'm going to be getting a Holland Lop soon and I'm wondering if it would be okay to get one that is like 3 years old instead of getting a baby one? And if you guys have any advice for me please comment below I would appreciate it!

    You are better off with a baby. They will know you and trust you when you get them young. I got my Holland Lop when he was only 6 weeks (most breeders recommend 8 weeks) and he is awesome. He comes when I call him, he is potty trained, he can lay on the couch next to me. The best pet ever. Get your lop young and give them a lot of attention and they will be your best friend.

Hi I live in Melbourne Australia, are there any lion head rabbit breeders here?? looking for a partner for my mini lop

    From what I have been told, there are not a lot of breeders in Austalia.  The country became overrun with rabbits and eating crops so they had to control the polulation.  Look for any bunny about th ame size.
  • Kristian - 2012-09-10
    damn.. I really wanted one of the lion heads because they look so cute :( I guess ill have to settle for another mini lop
  • I KNOW! - 2013-06-30
    After some research I'm sorry to say that the lionhead rabbit breed is not in Australia. I hope this is helpful. :(

I have two little ones hefty and chance. I recieved them when their mother was shot going into a barn. They had their eyes and ears shut so only a week old. Hefty has become very loving and affectionate, he uses the litter box and loves to sit on my shoulder and play with my hair. However chance is very mean,he bites hisses and claws. I'm planning on releasing chance as he has a wild mentality, but to release hefty would be certain death as he wouldnt know what to do. I am currently working on getting my rehabilitators license and becoming a rehabilitator. I agree with everyone, DO NOT take on a raccoon if you cannot handle it. They may be cute as babies but will grow fast and become unpredictable!
