Honestly, though, you're not likely to get a good answer out of them either.

I figured as much. The only time I've ever seen any action out of Connecticut's animal ordinances is when I brought eight puppies, their mother, and six kittens over state lines without a health certificate (I honestly didn't know I needed one- completely my fault!). They actually sent me to court when my friend called and asked about free spay/neuter vouchers because we rescued the dogs (why she didn't just ask me, I have no idea- I would have been the first to tell her that it is never going to happen).

But nothing came of that. Animal control really has no reason to come by my house now. I'm not fostering anymore and that was years ago. I wonder if they'd notice a few soft furred rats 0:)

In my state exotics are banned period. Yet I know people with monkeys, foxes, wolves...one kid even has a pet raccoon. Animal control knows they are there, but they seem very relaxed about it so long as they have vaccines. ...(still wondering, Is platinum a variation on headspotting, I'm not sure what some of the gene codes are yet)

Platinum is some kind of combination of the variegation gene, and modifiers. I'm not sure what makes it different than BEW though. It could be that the pigment just likes to sit on the ears, or it could be another gene in adition to variegation.

It's hard to say. My BEW line does not produce platinums, but my REW line does. What's different in the lines? I don't know.

That's neat. I still have to take that photo for you, I didn't forget.
I've gotten mine to the point where they will sit in my hand for food, so I think I can trust him long enough to take a few.
