The Snake Escape
Snakey quit eating for over three months. Then he demonstrated that he's actually a "she" by laying an egg. Neat! But then she escaped. I don't know how she managed to get out of the cage, but she did. So she is out and about, hopefully still in our house. If she went outside, she'll get too cold at night away from her heat rock, and animals or people will kill her.
I'm sad and I miss her. I've had her for seven or eight years now, having raised her from a baby about the size of a worm. Raising an animal like that gets you very attached to it. Apparently, that's not reciprocated and the feeling isn't mutual.
Please come home, Snakey.
I miss you.
