I am currently living in Nova Scotia and am looking to buy a miniature deer for a pet. I am looking to buy from a breeder nearby, but I am having a hard time finding one anywhere. If you can help me please reply. I really want one and it's going to a good home.

I used to have 3 or 4 'lab' mice, but unfortunately, they have all since died. The only female I had was pregnant, but sadly ignored her babies. I'm hoping to get some new mice, and breed them, and sell them as snake food...:[. I love having little pet mice because they're so affectionate, adorable, and tame, and I'm planning on working at a local pet store so I can have access to mice.

    That's terrible! How could you sell them as snake food? I have feeder mice and they mate alot but I find good homes for them, I'm not saying you are a terrible person, I know you aren't doing wrong, but I don't understand how it's possible to do that, I fall in love with them as soon as I see them, I could never sell them so anyone as food, it would break my heart. Breeding just to kill is kinda mean, I mean even with cows....I feel bad everytime I eat cow meat D: I guess I'm more sensitive then alot of other people seeing as if I kill a spider I cry. Can you explain to me how you are able to do this with out feeling bad? I'm just curious and I would like to be able to see things from your point of veiw. ~Alyssa Paige

    I agree with the comment above. I fall in love with mice as soon as I see them-love them so much, they're such cute animals! Sorry but how could you sell them as snake food?! Just the thought of that makes me feel upset. You aren't a bad person and I'm not being mean or anything but you're selling them as snake food?! :'(

    Hey Natasha, why don't you go jump in a tank with a snake and see how you like it. THINK before you say something so stupid, there are children who come to this site seeking help for their little guys, how insensitive can you be?

    I to am a mouse lover but to breed them and play with the babkies is a very fun process, too many mice since they breed fast could become over whelming, i do believe in using them for snake food if frozen at birth, it is nature snakes and other animals have to eat too, as much as we hate it, it is reality people, you want pet snakes their are also snake lovers someone has to produce food to keep the food chain going sad but just a fact, get a grip people and think outside the box lol m.j.

    Hey, I have snakes. i don't like feeidng the mice to them but that is just how it is. It's sad to see a baby mouse get eaten but what else are they going to eat? I guess I could try and make them in to vegetarians...but I don't think they would go for that. I could see everyone flipping out if Natasha said she was going to tourture the mice and then sale them as food, or if she said I'm going to just kill them. But she didn't. i bet she would be more then happy to not breed them for a little extra cash if everyone who had a problem with it would send her a check every month. There is nothing wrong with what she is wanting to do. Just leave her alone and look in the mirror if you feel the need to have to preach or judge someone. I bet there are alot of things you do that others don't agree with. So get off it.

    Snakes have to eat too! My boyfriend has 2 ball pythons and we stared breeding our mice, and yes for food. Who wouldn't fall in love with the adorable little baby mice but, thats just how things are snakes need food too. I love each of our mice(Luna, Moo, Zeus, Pepper, Cinnamon, and Daisy) that we keep as pets and carefully breed as to not over work the mothers. Don't be so judgmental people, none of us actually enjoy feeding the mice off. But when you see how quick it is (all of 2 maybe 3 seconds) it is more humane then most realize.
  • Reptile and Mouse Owner - 2013-03-18
    I understand you said nothing mean or horrible, mouse breeds and snakes eat. No different than getting sad for a seed that the mouse just cracked in half, everything needs food. But I also agree this specific place your 'story' is inappropriate, that would be more suitable for a page talking about snakes. I agree there are worse things on the internet a kid can find than a person saying they are going to breed mice for snake food. I love my pets and my mouse would never become any pets' food.

Hi my name is Sean i bought 2 sugar gliders months ago, they are the cutest and most annoying sounding creatures out there. There is a really loud ahah. When i bought them i read books on them and spent 500$ on cage and all the stuff, huge cage. most people tell you there loving, well my 2 that i got, male/female are absolutely mean. they draw blood everytime i hold them, and no matter what, they wont stop biting. there are some of the meanest things ive ever owned. im so careful with them yet all they do is bite. infact when i walk in front of the cage they start "crabing" for ever and never quit. They make huge messes when they eat, and you have to clean the fruit off of everything, the cage the wall and the floor. They are so cute, so annoying, and extremely mean!

Sorry changing the subject....i have a flyer his name is Parker. Have had him since Dec 2012, was about 5 wks old eyes still shut. Came to my lake camp had him in his cage, went outside for just abit he was in my shirt, usually he stays right with me but he jumoed off and was gone! It was around 8:30 at night, i sat outside in my lawn chair, i could hear him squeek so i would call his name. Around 1:00am yes still sitting outside with aheavy heart, i was looking in the trees, I saw him glide throughthe trees...Just Beautiful!!!!! So i said alittle prayer if this is where he is suppose to be at least he is happy. Still outside 3:00am saw him again gliding from tree to tree. Finally at 4:30 I dozed off in my chair, then I heard him behind me in one of the pine trees..I walked over extended my arm said I was sleepy lets go to bed..........he came down from the tree about 20 ft jumped on my hand an ran down my shirt snuggled next to my side went to sleep!!!! I was so amazed!!!!! Just wanted to share my adventure with Parker the flying squirrel!

HELLO EVERYONE I HAVE A PET RACOON NAMED SABRINA WHO IS TURNING ONE YR OLD ON MARCH 31.  I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH RESCUE AND REHABILITATION RELEASE CENTERS AND HAD AQUIRED MINE WHEN SHE WAS FOUND ON HER MOM AT 5 WEEKS OLD. RACOONS ARE VERY SMART OPURTUNIST MEANING IF THEY SEE IT AND WANT SOMETHING THEY WILL GET IT.  WHEN FINDING BABBIES ESPECIALLY NEWBORNS REMEMBER THEY CANOT GO TO THE POTTY U MUST STIMULATE THEM TO GO POTTY THIS CAN BE DONE WITH A Q TIP AND THE BEST MILK IS PUPPY MILK.ESIBILAC AND KMR ARE GOOD NBRANDS TO USE. NO HOUSE MILK IT CAN CONSTAPATE AND KILL YOUR BABBIES.  ALSO STIMULATE BABBIES UNDER 3 WEEKS OLD TO GO EVERY 3 HOURS TO POTTY. IF NOT DONE THE BLADDER WILL RUPTURE.  RACOONS LOVE ATTENTION AND WHEN BABBIES CAN BE AN ATTENTION HOG. MINE WAS. I AM CURRENTLY WORKIG TO GET THE PERMITS NEC TO OPEN MY OWN REHAB AND RELEASE CENTER FOR ORPHANED AND INJ WILDLIFE. I LOVE MY JOB AND RESPONSABILITIES AND WILL ALWAYS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS REG RACOON CARE OR ANY OTHER ???? PLEASE EMAIL ME AT HOPEFORDOLPHINS@YAHOO.COM

I have a baby raccoon that was found alone under a car 6 weeks ago. She is about 7 weeks old..She lives in our house but with many dogs that think she is like a squeek toy.. I do not have a safe place to release her and we do love her sooo much.. She is however very lonely as my time is divided in so many ways.. Does anyone have a great place were she can be homed forever or a soft release.. We need help soon... Thanks Penny

    Also about this baby (Scarlett) She lives only in our home and is so sweet. My worry about setting her back to the wild is that she does not know she is a raccoon. She does still drink from her bottle but only because she loves it. She also eats most anything we offer... I am willing to travel to get her to a home were someone understands and loves her. It is agaist the law her to own one so I worry about this as much as my careful eye with our dogs who on the most part are good with her. I just dont trust them 100%.. Please please can any one home her. My phone is 802-888-2662 Penny

    Occuring naturally the male and female would only stay together during courtship and  mating.  The male would then leave prior to the babies being born leaving the female to have the babies and feed them and care for them.  I would not leave a male racoon in with the female after breeding has occured.  They are loners by nature - definitely not monogomous and they can be quite aggressive. 
  • Garcia Alina - 2013-03-16
    yes as the male will kill the babbies or try to. it bis best to seperate them

We got a black Teddy Bear Hampstear almost 1 month ago. He is getting very familiar with us now, but when we try to pick him up he gets very jumpy. Starting to wonder if this thing is anti social. He will take snacks from our fingers and wood sticks from us, and we can pet him too. Just not so sure about picking him up. (The last time I tried he bit me, got 2 fingers with one bite - I'm kind of apprehensive to try again too!)

I keep reading that my pig needs a cage mate? We just got our cute little guy yesterday but now im thinking we should have gotten two. Any thoughts??? thanks so much!

    These guys do enjoy company.  Having two will give them some entertainment when you can not provide it.  So I guess it really depends on how much time you have to be with your pig.
  • Melissa Murray - 2013-03-10
    Did you get a second Guinea? Our guinea looks identical to the one in the Abyssinian photo... we have been strongly considering a cage mate but are not sure if the cage size will accommodate two piggies!

I am so relieved to see these comments! I had bunnies growing up, never knew the breed. I realize reading up that they were white New Zealands. I just talked to a rabbitry who said they don't recommend this breed for pets because they are aggressive. And they are bred for meat and fur! I took her word for it. But, when I looked them up and realized what they were- I thought- my bunnies were New Zealands and they were adorable, wonderful pets! I loved them. They let me hold them, they fell asleep on my lap. The only reason I may not go with them as I'm looking for one now for my kids first bunny- is I think I may not be able to give a bigger bunny as good of a life if they need more room for exercise. So, a smaller breed may enjoy a better quality of life at our home.
