Well, she first spotted on the wednesday morning and 14 days later she was welcoming the male, tail aside and letting him, this went on until the saturday. The second heat 5 months later, she was ready on day 10. That is when we mated her.

Whatever happened to taking the two potential mates on a play date letting them ...Read Full Post »
