    Feedin\' Snakes !

    Just went to the pet store for kitty supplies and it was the
    weekly mouse feed for the snakes . I watched for an hour , milk snakes , a rock python , a green wiggler that I forget the name of .

    It was over very quick for the meeses , not cruel at all . Watching the jaw unhinge was the wierd part to watch and it is amazing how much they can swallow .

    WAY COOL but i forgot the cat stuff and had to go back......

    Discovery channel live at your local pet store , call ahead for feeding times !

    I too am obsessed with ' The Feeding' but my wife cant stand it. My question is how can you afford pet store food? We buy in bulk at Sams Club, now I know Sams is all that is wrong with commercialism in America but its cheap.

    Kitty is 16 (17 in April) , a diabetic , one tooth left on the right side of his head (left is full) , had an infection around his private parts that ended up needing the WHOLE private part removed ($ 1600 bucks and he looks like a girl cat from the back , lucky I live so close to SanFrancisco:lol: )

    So to answer your question Z : I live alone and he is my best friend , no expenses spared ! works out to 2 bucks a day for special food , the alternaive was daily insulin shots .

    I'll admit a fascination for watching snakes feed - but only rats. I cannot watch anything bigger (ok anything cute) fed to them. I used to try and talk Seth into a Boa but he's a reptile hater (ok he's really terrified) and swore it would eat our cats.

    BTW OT - Your cat is great. It's easy to guess who runs your household. :lol: All he needs is a remote and corona to complete the picture.

    but me and one of my freinds were at the pet stoer th eother day for no reason we ended up staying there for almost 2 hours watching, fish, birds, rabbits, snakes, lizzards, and spiders, oh and the 2 scorpions which were eating that was the coolest part.

    I work for a vet, and I have to say that we see a lot of owners that aren't half as devoted as you. Having The Surgery done (I'm fairly certain you described a Perianal Urethrostomy, although at the clinic I work at we sympathetically refer to it as a Poor You :lol: ) is often the last straw when owners "give up", even though it's a really standard procedure and has a great success rate...anyway, just felt the need to comment, it sounds like your cat is very lucky to own such a dedicated person. :yes:

    They have very slow digestions, they dont need to eat more than once a week.

    I used to own two beautiful corn snakes and feeding them was always fascinating to watch. In the UK though it's illegal to feed live food, just as well as I wouldn't have kept them if they needed live food. Snakes can actually go for ages without food (not water). That's not to say you shouldn't feed them less than once a week.
