Hello people. *grin* My name is Ice, I'm a 25 year old female, and reside in the southern 'burbs of Chicago. I've owned rats for well over 10 years, and I'm currently rattie mom to 9 scuffling whisker factories. ^^

And last, but certainly not least, my oldest girl Belle, a silvered black berkshire doe. She was a rescue girl that I adopted on 3/30/06. Unfortunately she has an inoperable mamory tumor, so we are trying to make her remaining time with us as good as possible. :/
As for me, I'm a busy full time student (working on my doctorate in Pharmacology currently, but I have a BS in Chemical Engineering), but I try to help out with rescues and transport when I can. I believe in ethical breeding of all domestic pets, and I hope to eventually breed on a smaller scale one day myself in Russian silver, American mink, & Platinum with various markings.
Any breeding plans are in the future though, as I'm still learning about genetics.
Other then that, my mate and I also have 3 ferrets, a white faced cockatiel, and a budgie that we found in my Grandfather's yard a few summers ago. So, that is all. Hi!
