Just wondering if I'm doing things okay. I can tell they weren't socialized. I don't mind it, I just don't want them to be afraid, either. I want them to feel safe.
That's how I tamed my hamster. Let him exercise and then let him walk onto my hand to go back to his cage. It took a while but it worked. Also give them a glove or something small with your scent on it, put it in the cage. IT will help them get used to you faster.
My sister's experience with gerbils was sand baths. Give them sand (I think the chinchilla stuff is okay) and the gerbils will love you forever.

Oh, Olympia! Ouch! pointy faced dogs (greyhounds in my experience) just don't know their face length!! lol blood though? wow.
My friend asked if I wanted to try breeding one of my male bettas to her sickly perma-striped female. I was like

What a strange dog. I didn't know you wore glasses!
My cat is a venus fly trap. Spreads his belly open wide but as soon as you touch it he snaps closed on you biting and kicking.

Was pretty much: "Don't wanna snuggle anymore get off me! -smash-"

Someone gave me the guts to collect wood and leaves from the wild. All in all, seems equally as risky as pet store wood, actually. So, off to da woods I go!

Do you have a kiln?? Or know where you can use one? It would kill everything living on what ever you pick up! I always wanted a kiln. I used to be into art, like clay and stuff.
Does anyone else know the thread about King Dedede and Equinox?? *facepalm*

No Laki. Will probably soak in tap water and scrub is all. Turns out preventative measures do little. I'm collecting from in the forest, away from water, shouldn't have any aquatic pest issues that way.
What about this thread? I'll go check it out.

I don't even know what I just read. Glad this hasn't gotten violent though. Best not to get involved in these sorts of situations.
