hahaha xD good for you. atleast you did something. Shes real perdy.
I agree!Rhasputin said:Poor thing. Probably not manx though, she probably got his tail bitten off or something in those conditions. :|
Regardless of weather she's manx or not, she's reasonably healthy looking and very cute indeed!JustMouse said:So here is Boop, a banded black tan manx doe which I decided to save without supporting her "caregivers"
Let me know what you think of her... hopefully you aren't too bothered by my rash actions
Yes, I agree. We do want to breed her to test to see what happened, and if she is truly a manx or if her mother (or one of the many other mice there) just ate off her tail. Hopefully, if the tail is gone because of her mother, she won't repeat her actions when in much healthier conditions. However, she seems to have been weaned very young and small, so we may never be able to breed her at all.Stina said:having several and an adult that had no tails doesn't necessarily imply manx......in a situation like that it wouldn't be uncommon for mom's to get overzealous and take off tails of newborns...thus leading to multiple tailless mice....the only way to know for sure would be to breed her and watch very very closely since the overzealousness when cleaning newborns can be genetic too.
I completely agree with that! Some people disgust me with their lack of respect for other living things... not to mention a lack of empathy. It's not like it's difficult to understand that ferrets, fish, mice, and lizards don't all eat poor quality cat food....Twotails said:Why would someone own a pet store and have the animals live in those conditions and not care? .... I just don't get some people! One thing my Grandmother would say is "If people are cruel to animals or neglect them, then they should be put through exactly what the animals went through so they understand and hopefully learn a lesson." I agree with her.
