  • RIP Toe #1

    I am so bummed. I think its the horrid dry/cold messed up weather we've been having. .. I found my fave Toe (from Mr. & Mrs. Foot) hatchling dead and practically mummified this early afternoon. I can't figure it out, it was alive last night when I misted everybody. I am so sad because this was hands down my fave little gecko from this pair and it was looking female and was gonna be a hold back.
    Needless to say, I freaked and re-misted everyone. Guess I'll be misting at least 2-3x/day until this freezing cold dry snap breaks and we get some very much needed rain.
    RIP, beautiful little Toe. I'm so sorry I didn't take better care of you. I hope it was an easy passage to gecko Summerlands for you.

      Oh, Saille!!!

      I'm so sorry you've lost Toe 1!!!

      I think that everyone here will agree that you're a TERRIFIC gecko mommy!!!

      In this crappy weather, with everyone running the heaters and the drier inside air, there are bound to be losses.

      And there are MILLIONS of animals who'll never know the love or care you gave to your little one!!

      I'm sure Toe 1 is going to be waiting for you at The Bridge with your other deceased geckos.





      Beyond The Rainbow

      As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
      I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
      I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
      Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

      I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
      Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
      And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
      Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
      My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
      And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

      I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
      That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
      'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
      And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

      For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
      We are still connected by a cord that no eye can see.
      So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
      If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.


      From "Beyond The Rainbow" by Cate Guyan.


      RIP, little Toe!!!
      Wait for your Momma...
      Love and Light-
      Donna

              Thanks, guys. This is actually my first casualty in house in my care, I lost two hatchlings this past summer from the heatwave (but we were in England on vacation and I had a gecko sitter watching them, and they were not my own hatchlings, they had been given to me...)I'm thinking of investing in a humidifier as both Tony and I are also dry and itchy from this ridiculously dry weather.

                  So Sorry Saille! I know you loved your little toe. <3

                  I'm doing the same thing. I lost one (my first ever gecko death) last week cause of the same reason, I think. Its insanely dry and cold here as well. My poor little one was only 2 months old, fine the night before then dead and dried up the next morning. Even after a heavy misting. Its crazy how quick the heaters dry out the room.

                    awww saille, i'm sorry you lost your favorite toesie. *hugs*

                    do you have tiny water dishes in with your hatchlings or do you just rely on misting for hydration?
