I’ve missed having a cat. Welcome to your new home, Clover.
hi please enjoy a picture of my son
Guilty Aislynn caught looking at the forbidden mice while sitting just over the border of the forbidden room
the “pile of stuff” phase of enclosure design
ants update :
C. chromaiodes colony has some eggs as well as a pile of larvae, haven’t been able to get a count because the queen is constantly on top of them
C. pennsylvanicus colony is growing slower with only six eggs. they’ve also managed to get honey Absolutely Everywhere
My mom got this lovely picture of Jasper begging me to take him to bed.
The filthy ladies coming running because they thought I had their food, which had been sitting at the top of the hill for an hour. 🙄
But it was a nice feeling to see them come running as soon as they saw me!
how’s it feel knowing my dog is more photogenic than you could ever be?
Making decent progress on the beach wall! I have some more spray foam on the way, but not sure if I’ll end up needing it after all.
Foam is drying for now, then I think next up is shaping the spray foam a bit more, then maybe? Starting to silicone and add sand & rocks.
In the meantime, the crabs say in very mean and they miss their extra climbing space -
Half of them have been climbing whatever they can and hanging out up high. 😂 I’m sorry guys, I’m trying to hurry!
Alfredo has been pretty dumpy since I took Feta but today she was a bit brighter. She at least bonded a lot with Mac and Rav so she’s not alone.
Everything is finally thawing out so we can play in the yard a lot more! Max now has an old baseball glove and we have a giant puddle in the yard from the snow melting that he checked out.
Schatzi und die schon schlafende Simba lassen euch allen schnurrige Grüße da!!😽
Und noch einen schönen Abend!
They’re here!! I got 3 of these Metilia sp. (:
They are very sleek and very hyper
The winner of the first three.
The good: He has a nice, broad skull, a wide ear set, a decently thick tail, color that goes down to the tip of his tail (no white end or spots), minimal pinching behind the whisker bed.
The bad: His tail set is terrible, with the rump not leading smoothly to the tail, his ears are small and not very smooth, lighter pigment overall, white toes.
Overall he’s a good first step up from the starting males, and I will be trading him into rotation so I can retire the males that don’t look as good. I was only able to hold back 3 males total from the group I got, and already retired one for being an asshole to me, so I was low on males starting out. I don’t know how old either of the males I initially got are, and I only know their phenotype not their backgrounds, so swapping for younger males (and younger females) with better type and color is the first step in the process of shaping this line.
There are a bunch more males from the litters after this one that are looking good color-wise, so I’m hoping that a few of them will show even better promise than this guy. They will be getting photographed next weekend to see how they all compare. I’m really hoping my ear tags get in by then so I can tag them and tell who’s who easier.
Today is March 3rd, “Hinamatsuri”
The Hinamatsuri is an annual event in Japan that prays for the healthy growth of girls. It is a festival where you can enjoy eating and drinking, decorating Hina dolls with trees such as cherry blossoms and peach blossoms.

I recently got my bird a couple of those plastic jingle ball toys (you know, those ones with the open spaces and a bell in the middle) and she plays so strangely with them
She’s always been super aggressive playing with toys, and she will just run at me and RIP the ball from my hand if I pick it up (she’ll bite me in her pursuit if I’m not careful lol)
but once she has the ball, she spends her time running around with it in her beak, trying to find somewhere to place it down. She always tries to leave it somewhere where it can’t roll away– like on top of fabric, or between a couple of things. If I pick up the ball from where she’s put it she gives a little aggressive squawk and races back to reclaim it lol
Not sure what in her mind just wants to secure the ball rather than shake or tap it on the table. I’m not sure if maybe somewhere in her dumb little bird brain she thinks it’s an egg of some kind??
