Peaches Isn’t Here Right Now, But if You’d Like to Leave a Message….

Peaches isn’t here because she’s on a getaway with a handsome stranger.  Yes, we finally pinned down her heat cycle, picked out the papa, and drove her up for breeding today!

It's 22 degrees at our house, and 17 degrees up at the breeder's place, so to keep Peaches warm on the journey, we wrapped the cage in old sleeping bags and filled it up with fresh, dry straw.

Tucked in and ready to go!

It was probably still a very chilly trip, but she made it intact and was her usual, unflappable self.

At first Peaches wasn’t too sure she liked her suitor, who admittedly came on a bit strong.  Tongue-waggling and grunting and being very pushy.  And worse.  Much worse. Hard to imagine a universe in which peeing all over yourself on a first date is sexy.

But within a few minutes she stopped running away and let him get a closer look at her...assets.

Eventually she warmed right up to him.

Eventually she warmed right up to him.  Kind of amazing, but thank goodness!

She’ll stay there for about a week, just to make sure she definitely gets bred. And in about 5 months . . . little goaties! And milk!
