Rom's a Daddy!

Post by Lew on Tue Apr 24, 2012 8:03 pm

A few weeks ago Rom went on a little holiday to stay with a nice double-rex Burmese doe and make some lovely licky babies. I'm pleased to say that they were born in the early hours of Sunday morning. There were initially 11 babies but sadly we lost 2 of them. The remainder all seem nice and healthy and are feeding well. The litter should all be rex and dumbo, split between black-eyed Siamese and Burmese, alhough we seem to have a random pink-eyed baby in there. I really can't wait until they're ready to be homed as a couple of the bucks will be coming to live with me. Grin

Should be Burmese and BES, all dumbo rex (although we do have one pink-eyed baby in there which she thinks may be RES).

There are gorgeous Smile I'm sure its got lovely aspects,,but I would think theyed really need to be weighed up with all the potential stress and heartache,as well as the expected work involved,definatly not to be taken lightly!

I'm having the Burmese boy. Haven't decided whether to have the RES or one of the BES boys yet though.

That's what we're trying to figure out. Quark and Rom's great-great-grandfather on their father's side was a Russian Blue, but we're trying to work out where there could be RB in Skylar's pedigree.
