why not consider adopting from a rescue a little female for your female, this way she gets a friend. I honestly dont believe in breeding but thats just me , because it takes alot of A work B background info on your pet usually if you get one from a petshop you dont have its background, and C there are many in shelters right now that need a home

oh not around here .there are no rescues around here near me and i don,t belive in getting a critter and putting threw a long distant travel .It took me 1 yr just to find this lady near me and she had babies but none now .it,s hard around here unless you want a rabbit or giunea pig .even no stores carry them .and no shelters either .

If that's the case, I definitely wouldn't breed. It sounds like it would be difficult for you to find the babies homes and get them vet care (remember that there could be complications with the pregnancy).

Good luck finding another! It might be worth a shot to call shelters and rescues anyway. They might be able to arrange transport (or even have a foster home near you) :).
