I want to apologize for not posting as much.
My husband has recently found out due to a genetic kidney disease his right kidney is shutting down and his left one is severly stressed. we go to see the nephrologist on the 15th this month and will know more on what is going to happen.
i have also been apartment hunting as we want to get away from the crazy neighbor that has been threatening us as the law enforcement wont do nothing about it. (thats a long story) short version. I asked her to clean up after dog peeing in the hallway and she blew up at me threating to beat me up and what not. I make a report about it as i dont feel comfortable in my own apartment building now and she admits to 3/4 of my report but because she didnt admit to the threatening part they didnt even give her a disorderly conduct ticket even though law states she should have as she was causing a seen. Funny thing was the neighbors that seen me telling her to get out of my face told the officer i was the one that told her to watch her back. and SHE was the one that ran from the officer when the called for her as she was walking into the apartment building. Yeah if thats not guilty i dont know what it.
As for our critters. Well we will be one less critter shorter as far as furry creaters go. we are getting rid of our ferret tomarrow. However we've gained a few snakes and a few rats. I hope they dont prevent us from getting a new apartment.
We've gained 1 male and 1 female hairless rat. hopefully to become breeders.
1 albino burmese python
1 spider ball python
1 albino lavender king snake
and a few more male and females ball pythons.
A few days ago my husband was snake hunting and came across a baby goose. Well this goose was all by itself lonely sitting next to its baby brother who had died. Their mom was no where to be seen. I didnt find all this out til i came home from work and i go walking into my husbands snake room and see it sitting in a 10gal tank with some water in a dish. I asked him what the heck was goin on, he joking around told me snake food. Then told me the real story. He didnt want it having the same fate as his lil bro, so he brought it home in hopes to relocate it with another goose family. We live right next to a river that has ducks there all the time, so he went and looked and their was a family of geese, and he set the lil goose down and he ran all the way up to this lil family and did some sniffing like dogs do or what ever geese to do introduce themselves and next thing you know they all wonder off into the water together. So having this lil guy run around my house for a few hours was pretty fun, but boy are they messy creatures. LOL!
Last night our friend who breed rats for us came over and gave us the female rat we are going to use in breeding. Well after she was handling it she did not put lotion on and then her neice that was with was playing with the albino burmese, and we've never had a problem before and he's never struck at anyone not even me and i dont handle snakes that often.
Well within a split second he must have sensed rats or something because she turned and snaped on her and latched on to her wrist and started trying to coil up like he does when they feed. it took her niece holding the tail my hubby and his strength to keep it from coiling and then me taking a small pen to pry open the mouth and then put some paper towel between her and the snake to get it to release.
One of the mistaken identy cases. No damage just a lil bleeding and a few teeth marks on the wrist. a lil peroxide to wash it out and she was good to go.
Then i woke up this morning to go to work and find that our spider ball python was out and decided he wanted to explore the apartment. (i really wish the hubby would keep weights on the tanks. I hate having to tear that room apart to find them, and its to hot to want to do that now).
As for our dogs well Our mini daschund keeps going into heat, and boy does my chihuahua go nuts. yes we want some lil chiweenies to sell, however my Tootsie(chihuahua) would rather go for her Head and as my hubby calls it Tea-bag her than go for the right end. Well the other night i thought it would be nice to assist and point the right end in his direction. Well he started. the 1st time he was energizer bunny until she snipped at him and ran away. Well 2nd time was fine and then all of a sudden the were stuck together and Butt to Butt. Yes one of them got spooked and Tootsie frooze up. We had no idea what to do, so at 3am we tried calling whoever we could to find out what to do. As soon as the hubby got the Emergency Vet and they were telling us to just let them be Tootsie jerked and yanked and they were loose. POOR Lovey, she wasnt too happy after that she ran and hid. However the next day Tootsie was right back at it with the Head humping again. All our friends that come over and has never seen a dog do that laugh cuz it is kinda hilarious to a point. I try to tell him to give her a break but he doesnt let up. lately i've had to kennel him just to get him to stop. then its whine wine wine. LOL!
So we've have qutie the eventful houseful over the past month.
I will be sad to see my ferret go, however with possibley moving we are trying to reduce the number of pets, so hopefully we'll hear some news on a few of the snakes getting rehomed as well. The husband loves rescuing them and finding them homes and using them as a breeding project but were getting back up there in numbers again. so its an all stop on more snakes till were back down to a low number. :)
