That is such a pity but if you got her healthy and all clear it's not the end of the world. I don't know, thats just how I look at it sometimes. Maybe because I have had the odd misfortune.

Try another male too. That many slugs means he might be less than virile.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
