Oh my gosh!!

This person a while ago emails me telling me that he is looking for a female to breed with his male at home (On our webpage it clearly points out that Elyse and Tiggy cannot be bred under any circumstances) and suggests Elyse. She is only $45.00, mind you, so he is looking for a cheap price.

I email him back with this:

Tiggy and Elyse cannot be bred. Tiggy is not in shape to be bred-- she has no desired traits for breeding. She is fat, was abused, is a rescue with an unknown history, and has never gotten along with any of our chinchillas.

Elyse cannot be bred because when she gets pregnant she chews her fur. It stresses her to the point of depression. I cannot sell to anyone with a male chinchilla at home. As I have posted on the webpage, they would be miserable pregnant.


Thank you,

Rocheal


So I get a few strange emails from random addresses saying stuff like "I am looking for a female chinchilla rescue. I am not a breeder and will never breed them"... dah dah dah dah dah.. I really had a feeling it was the first person emailing about Elyse.

Today I get this email from him at his original address. I know he doesn't want me to know it's him:

"i have lost my male. looking to relace it with old male 1 yr at least. or more females to first start to build up my females then get males to start breeding."

I don't know if he would sell to someone like that but I wouldn't Oh yeah-- And he forgets to DELETE our old email attached at the bottom!! DUH

When do people finally give up and realize I actually care enough about my babies NOT to sell to people like him?!
