Yeah I got put back into the busy life of rescuing and such xD
After those budgies got their wings back and were put on proper diet, eating fresh greens, etc;. they got a new home. =3
My finches are being used as "Rehab" birds right now for my brother's Mom. She's just had one knee surgery and is having her 2nd one. It's a long story but in order for her to stay motivated i'm letting her keep them there so that she HAS to get up to do something. She has to feed, and water, daily. They're in a big ol' aviary. She's an older lady and has no one around to even visit her so I thought it would be nice to let her borrow them a while =3
Let's see, Rory, my mini rex bunny, just passed away this last week. He had a tumor the size of a softball that was very aggressive//surgery not available for the poor guy, and it was pushing his ribs into his lungs. =( So he had to be put down.
Always had snakes. xD But Beemo had to be re-homed due to aggression. I baby sit my room mate's little brother and have itty bitties around the house sometimes and as i'm sure you know--kids get into anything. So I can't really have any aggressive animals. =/ He was a corn snake i'd rescued from nastyness. When I got him, his cage was full of poop, shed, dog food, a butter knife, mold, and the list goes on. He had shed on him that stank like cigarete smoke. But I got him to a healthy weight, worked a bit with him on his aggression, and then sent him to my brother who works more with aggressive snakes. Hopefully he will find a permanent home eventually but, oh it's awful. =/ The moment that I knew he had to be re-homed was when I was getting in his cage just for routine daily checks, but when I opened the cage this time he actually struck my face and my hand. =/
My room mate wasn't taking care of her king snake and sand boa, so I asked her if she'd just give them to me permanently, and i'd do it myself. =/ So I have those. And then I still have my ball python--who will never leave lol. And then a woman came into the store last year telling me about her son going to college and how she doesn't know anything about snakes but has his corn snake. Every month she'd ask me if I could take it--with a re-homing fee which I understood. Finally I think last month it was, I told her i'd do it. So then I ended up with a 12 year old creamsicle corn snake. I'm not sure on my plans on that right now, if i'll keep it or i'll make sure it's in good shape and re-home. (With reptiles you don't just re-home immediately. They hide things VERY well. You quarantine them, make sure they eat regularly and well, shed properly, and so on)
Uh, i've got a box turtle now. Which a little girl came into the store crying that it was going to bite her and she didn't want it any more. Which, long ago I had plans for a box so I didn't mind taking. I already had supplies. xD I tend to buy supplies thatI don't necessarily need, but might someday. Especially when there's a sale or a nice deal you know? Like cages and such. Because even if I don't use things, I sell things through the store.
I rescued some sugar gliders I think 2 or 3 months ago now. A guy was moving in with his boyfriend and his boyfriend would NOT let him have pets, so he had no idea what to do. He was a regular customer at my store so I knew him pretty well. He had several pairs but I only had room for one pair. So i've got those. They're tons of fun!
I have the ground squirrels we attempted to sell in the store. xD Last may we ordered those along with several prairie dogs all of which sold, and then left these two little girls. summer goes by. and finally I get asked to just take them home and see if I can sell them elsewhere, because we needed the room for things that are selling. Issue here became that with a ground squirrel they bond to you the more you care for them. =/ You become their "Clan" and like with prairie dogs, rehoming becomes hard later on. Anyhow. So those are keepers. Their names are Lola and Cherry C
