  • My Sweet, Sweet BabyCakes...

    I don't even know where to begin... between the mounting frustration because I'm ill and the tragedy that was last night, I'm a mess.

    Last night I went upstairs to feed the gang and I found my sweet, chubby momma BabyCakes very still and very stiff near her food bowl. I still cant really believe that this happened. I skipped two days in a row because I was too ill to move off of the couch, but this was the first time I'd gone two days without feeding the geckos... they're all a healthy weight and were moving around just fine the night I did feed them.

    I miss her so much.

    She gave me my very first hatchling, Cupcake, and she was the sweetest and most gentle thing I've ever met. She didn't mind being brought out to educate family members and friends about reptiles, and she was slow-moving and bombproof when it came to children.

    I've saved her body in hopes of getting a reason for her death... I guess a lot of things could have contributed. I have no idea how old she was, but my guess is at least over 3 years. Her head was very chewed up when I purchased her, so I dont really have an idea of how she was cared for before she came to me... I just want her back. I wasn't ready to let go...

    Rest in peace, sweet Cake...

              I am sorry to hear she is gone; my heart goes out to you. I hope the vet can give you some answers to ease your mind. Thoughts and prayers are with you, and I hope you start feeling better soon.
