    She came from the same Breeder as Gandalf, the only reason we took her was because she was going to be culled due to having a dislocated toe hence no good for showing (we fell in love with her also!) we couldnt just leave her to that fate so took her on and got the nasty show ring cut off and now she has the run of the landing! Gill said the toe is fine and shouldnt be causing her any pain whatsoever! you wouldnt know at all by the way she binks all over the place!

    We were looking all over for a rescue but thought she needs a life too! she had her last round of jabs today also so April 18th is when they go off to be bonded! very excited! thanks again for the lovely response!

    Well you certainly saved her from a certain death!

    I know people on this Forum buy rexes from breeders - perhaps they aren't very common in rescues?

    I hope she continues to do loads of binkies

    I had a Tort Mini Rex who had a dislocated toe. He was a Breeder's 'Reject' too

    Has your Seal Point Doe got a name ?

    Gosh, lucky Gandalf. She's lovely!

    And, basically, she's a rescue given her "fate". How horrid

    I'm sure not all breeders are the same .... But it's startling when they say they will cull for such a reason and not try to rehome, I guess.

    Yeah im sure there are good breeders, not saying this was a bad breeder but they were stock to him rather than lives it seems. sad but so glad we got to save her and gandalf from a life of shows.

    not so many from rescues no but then trying to find a female of any sort was proving difficult.
