Thanks fightergirl, I think she's pretty adorable as well ;)! The thing is with tail dropping, is it isn't supposed to happen! LOL. As long as you take care of your leo, they shouldn't be frightened enough to drop it. But obviously, the previous owners weren't so nice to her poor thing! My neighbor really must have something wrong with her, for keeping her in such terrible conditions. Disgusts me. She thought it was hilarious that she was waiting for it to die. It just sickened me. I've lost all the respect I had for them. I don't know how they tolerated the stink. But they have a dog that they almost never let outside so, who knows, maybe their used to nasty smells? :/ I'm also worried about their poor dog now, who knows how they take care of him!
Thank you laughing! I adore her, she's just a little snuggle muffin, loves to be held. She sits on my shoulder as I walk around the house, its adorable! I know, all animals that haven't been handled regularly become a bit antsy, but she isn't like that at all. The neighbor warned me she bites, she hasn't tried at all. My girl obviously didn't like the neighbor and I don't blame her! She defintily is a fighter, which is why we are most likely going to be calling her something like Miracle, Hope or such. Plenty of people would love to have a leopard gecko, I'm sure SOMEONE would have taken it but NO, they had to starve her.
When she told me they hadn't cleaned it in a year, I didn't believe her...until I smelled the tank. OHMYGOD. Disgusting! It ticked me off because neighbors son was on his computer playing games. Its like, "HE HAD TIME RIGHT NOW! HE COULD BE CLEANING RIGHT NOW!" If I can find time to clean 5 tanks everyweek, he should be able to find time to clean a reptile tank at least two or three times a year, or hey, on a NORMAL SCHEDULE! JEEZUS.
I had given up getting a reptile years ago, and had settled for my dogs and fish, but my mom couldn't say no to this sweetie. And my mom is starting to warm up to her, and even (OH MY GOD) HOLDING HER! :D I definitely think you should get one when you can, she's a little angel. My friend's geckos are also very sweet, so I think they are a great species to have as a pet.
D'aww! A rottweiler pup! I love them, although I can't spell their name for the life of me, LOL (I copied your spelling)! They are adorable. My neighbors (different ones) had one, and she was in love with my boxer/lab mix, it was the cutest thing ever. They are such nice dogs, so beautiful! Post pictures of it when you get it! :D Sugar gliders are so cool! I'd want one, but I think they are illegal in Canada, or at least Ontario, which sucks. I'd like a bearded dragon one day, but my mom would kill me if I got MORE pets lol. I think reptiles feel cool. :3 LOL. They aren't slimy or anything, just smooth.
I will definitely have more pics, I'll post some in a minute. And I WILL have fun with her, she's too cute not to!
I still can't believe I got her, it was so fast you know? It hasn't sunk in really, I just feel excited about it still! :P
Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.
