Oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh. What a day!
Jack was running downstairs to get something from the kitchen when I hear "Daisy! Daisy! Come here quick!". I ran as fast as I could and he was running up the stairs at the same time. I was freaking out like crazy as I thought something awful had happened...
We found Frank!
My big, gorgeous lump of a corn snake I had presumed had been stolen back in February when a lot of my expensive things had gone missing (but not animals, except Frank). Apparently he was about to have a drink from Bailey's water bowl so we think he has been living in the kitchen! He's pretty darn underweight and very, very cold. But he's okay in himself. I'm going to gradually start to fatten him up and make him feel better. Bit stupid of me though, I gave away his vivarium to Jack's step dad for their corn snake, Cesar, and now I need it again! Sigh. He's in a tub at the moment for now
I just can't believe it. When I saw him my eyes just welled up and I broke down. I was yelling and crying and in so much shock. I had accepted that I was never going to see him again and not a day went by when I wasn't checking on the other herps that I wished he was still with me. I know you're not supposed to have a favourite, but well, he's mine. When I got him he was skinny, aggressive, housed improperly and going through an awful shed. I'd got him up to a good weight, calmed him down and made him the wonderful companion animal he is and got his housing spot on. After the 3rd? shed he had with me, it was a complete one! So losing him hit me really hard. I'd lost all of my companion parrots, my Kenyan sand boa went missing, my things went missing, he went missing, my dogs were at the vets. Everything and anything
He's spent most of the night snuggled up on me, stealing my warmth. I couldn't care less though, it's AMAZING to see him again
I will pop up a couple of photos either later on or in the morning. But I just HAD to tell you guys
