NaBloPoMo: Day 1

First day of NaBloPoMo. Hope I do well! I think I will post about how my pets are doing since I haven't posted about them in a while.

Copper, my flying squirrel, is doing great! He is very tame now and I can take him out of his cage now. I think he has arthritis or something in his hind legs because he hasn't been able to move them correctly for a while, but it doesn't seen to be hurting him at all. Because of this, he is not as fast and so he never runs away from me.
He loves getting his cheeks and head scratched! He will nip your finger lightly and then lay his head down for you to scratch him. It is very cute!
Copper discovered new favorite nuts not too long ago. He loves hickory nuts even more! He also really likes acorns. He still likes pecans every once in a while though.

My Rabbits are doing well. We found out Astrid is actually a male! We renamed him Astor. Once we found out, we took him and got him fixed by our favorite vet! After we got him fixed, he suddenly got aggressive, which is odd because it is actually supposed to make them tamer. He's gotten tamer, but he still bites and scratches sometimes. Nevertheless, he is still my baby boy!

Mythril is still pretty shy and very mean, but she is getting used to me petting her, she just hates being picked up. She has gotten very big! A few weeks ago, when she and Astor were playing in the front yard flower garden, which we have nicknamed the rabbit run, Mythril started digging a hole under a piece of drift wood we have in the garden. I think she is trying to build a burrow. It was really cool watching her dig.
Picture Caption: Mythril is not amused

My birds are doing pretty well, except Luey died about 2 weeks ago, I'm not sure why though. She hadn't been doing too well for a while.
Lucy is still as silly as ever, hanging upside down and turning her head upside down. I think she thinks she is an owl, lol.
Schroeder is still my little baby bird. He is still as sweet as ever, and he loves clicking at us and saying "pretty bird".
Boris is still mean, but he has been singing a lot lately. Nearly non stop. It's very pretty, but it is kinda hard to sleep, haha.
Bird in the picture is Schroeder

Samantha, my leopard gecko, has been doing great. She hasn't grown too much, but she has gained a good amount of weight and is very healthy. I've been feeding her crickets and the occasional super worm. She still hates being picked up, and I don't think I will ever tame her, but she is a good pet.

As for my dogs, they are all doing well. I took two of them, Little Bit and Scout, camping this year. They loved it! I had never taken any of them camping before, and it was really fun. They slept in the tent with me and my friend and kept us warm lol.

I think that's all of them, lol.
I guess that is it today. Until tomorrow,
