I finally made the decision to have Scarface, the class rat euthanized - it was time - very old and losing his battle with cancer. We did save ashes though, so his urn is in the classroom. And for those of you with dark humor and remember the Doritos ad that ran during Super Bowl - no, we don't eat Doritos in the classroom.
I have a new bird - she's pink - (well, I don't know if it's a she, but I call her Baby.) She's a rosey bourke's parakeet and she was getting very depressed at the pet store. So now she's in the classroom; not sure how happy she is, but she makes cute, little noises during the day and I'm content with that.
Several gerbils have found homes, and females are separated from the males - no more population growth.
Guinea pig mama is due with babies by the end of the month. (ps - another guppy gave birth…LOL)
