Just cleaned him out. he swallowed a whole slice of bacon while he was in his baby tank. I made Apey babysit, he was frightened. He has shed some scales during winter, just realised the size of one scale is actually how big his whole body was when the cat spat him out on the kitchen floor.  eeek:

Tis that time of year again where I am constantly concerned that Fluffster is either sick or dead. I think he's getting pissed of with me as everytime he tries to settle into hibernation I take him out of the tank for a health check. This year it seems he is going to sit on his rock out of the water and not move. This is a new approach.  rubschin:

have to find another tank for when spring comes. He grows so much during hibernation. Worried he will fill the whole tank while he's sleeping. Wonder if I can fit a bath tub in the front room.  rubschin:

You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe
