I caught a brief glimpse of June this morning.
No, really. My neighbor friend, June, was out jogging with her young son this morning...
BUT, never fear. June really is just around the corner! We have three days left in May and we need about a third of an inch of rain to break the record set in 1935. My money's on this being our year.
But I'm finished complaining. It's terrible what is happening in Texas and Oklahoma.
In other little disaster news, Reese is AWOL. Yep, our 4-foot-long king snake managed to escape and is playing hide and seek with us. *LOUD SIGH*
Meego fed him on Tuesday. We feed him in an enclosed shoe box. We were told that it's best to take him out of his usual habitat and feed him in a small box so he became accustomed to that being his "dining" area.
So anyway, Meego put him in the box, fed him the mouse, then closed the lid and placed two heavy books on top as always.
Later, when he went to return Reese to his tank, Meego noticed a small hole in the corner of the shoebox. He remarked that we should probably get another box. The next thing he said was,
"Reese isn't in here!"
And I said, "WHA...?!"
We all spent a good amount of time searching, but to no avail. That guy could be anywhere. Of course the situation is compounded by the fact that the room is filled with Chaco and Wolfgang's boxes and such of dorm crap.
Also compounding the situation is that Reese had just shed. It was an impressive one-piece shedding, kinda like peeling the whole label off a beer bottle... Worthy of a photo.
He's always gotten quite active just after he sheds, like he's feeling all frisky in his new "clothes".
As of right now, he's still missing. We put his heat lamp out near a comfy crevice and his favorite hide to try to lure him.
Got any snake-trapping advice??
I just hope we spot him soon. And the "we" doesn't include the cat!
