But they are a much bigger responsibility life span and vet care-wise, which is important to consider. :)

Agreed. x.x They "can" live I think someone said...7-9 years? Although most common especially for pet-store originated, is 4-6. Depending on the care before you get them, will affect their life span. Like Shaggy...they said he is 1 year.... We know they lied. He has old man signs Cataracts, cloudy eye, curled thick nails, lipoma (no harm... more harm in getting it removed because of the surgery he could die!), impaction, everything x.x So I will say for my ol' Boy, he shows signs of being 4 and he has a year or so left. :/

cleaning is worse than a hamster xD

nice =D Shaggy's my baby I love him lol. He's like a dog. Tell him to stay, he'll stay. He won't pee ON you.... he'll stick his bum over the edge and pee on the side of you instead x.x plus he doesn't bite... I'm going to miss that liil' guy I'll have to save up for euthanasia, because once he goes blind it's game over, really. Or loses weight too. Him, I have to weigh. He weighs as much as my smaller femaes o_O he should weigh more.

I read somewhere that the longer the pregnancy, the fewer the babies. sor maybe its the other way around. O_o She was about a week overdue. Poor girl looked like a bulging water balloon.xD

@bettalover, hehe I HATE spellcheck. One time I told my boyfriend that I wanted Leonard for sinner. When in fact I wanted McDonald's for dinner. lol.

@Olympia Yes, we are keeping at least one of them. So far two family friends are getting one for their kids. :)

@Sena, Aww I'm so sorry to hear that. :( they definitely are like little dogs. I hope he makes it for a good while longer!

I didn't know that. Then again all I do know is Feeding, cleaning, and playing.

LOL. I know how you feel. Im sure we all know how you feel. I think there is an autocorrect website.

Anyway. When did she deliver the final one? Also How long are they supposed to be pregnant for (on average)?

The results are in!

They have about a 68 day pregnancy, usually - sometimes a give or take =D My Honey looked like a chubby baby when really the chubby WAS a baby x.x
