Title: DNA test is back
Post by: Cetan on April 09, 2015, 01:01:38 PM
I was told Nick was a male but started to get a little nervous because he was spending a lot of time shredding paper and running under the couch and trying to build nests. With 2 known males I wanted to be sure so back to the vet we went, meanwhile I was kicking myself for not asking her to do a DNA test when she took blood for a blood panel when I first got Nick. Well the results are back and Nick is in fact a healthy MALE  :banana: :wefly:  What a relief

Congrats! Charlie similiarly shreds a lot of paper and goes under the couch but is also confirmed male. I guess males and females make nests

Congrats on another boy Nancy  :icon_mrgreen:. I didn't know that males did that either.

I have a question for you... Is Chante pretty crotchety and cranky? Seems like Raven always has had that in his personality. Would you say he's really aggressive when he's hormonal, or not real bad? Just wondering since they share the same genes  :).

All Raven does at his age is fluff up and threaten me all the time. He's so cage territorial now, and he never used to be. He's also meaner to his little friend Griffin too.

Yes, Dobby has been buzzing Principessa when she is sitting quietly, and last night he strutted up and down on a curtain rod, challenging her. Springtime...

And Eloy does the same. Yes they make nest together.  :)

Congrats Cetan!  :woohoo1:
