Of course...
Charlie had seemed quite hungry for a few weeks, so it surprised me when she only wanted to eat one of two rats I'd defrosted on Saturday, when the Mogils came to visit her after the wedding. Her skin also seemed a bit faded. And, the last couple of days, I'd noticed she didn't seem to be coming out of her hide. Well, duh! Every time she's about to shed, the signs catch me by surprise. I'm sure that's what's about to happen, so I'll just leave her alone and keep the water filled for a few days.

I hope Les will forgive me for being so amused at his reaction to Charlie. He really was not interested in having her come out of the tank to say hi. :-)

The rain seems to be letting up. I should head home before too much longer, via Sapsucker Woods to feed the kitties.

I was talking to the vet today and apparently it is very rare for pet snakes to shed because they don't find perfect conditions for shedding.

So good for you and Charlie.

Thanks! Yeah, her head is sticking out of her hide right now, and her eyes are clouded over, so she's definitely about to shed.

I can imagine Les' reaction.. I'm not big on snakes myself.

Kitties love food and attention! :)

You'd think so, but they've mostly been ignoring me! I suspect they're mostly staying downstairs where it's cool.
