One thing I have learned since getting my little noodle is people are going to give you tons of advice on how to take care of your pet but at the end of the day you need to listen to your pet. Snape was not eating well at all. I was feeding him f/t pinkies and it was a huge fight to get him to eat if he even ate at all. Last Friday he once again refused his meal and I said screw the advice and got him a live pinky. He gobbled it down so quick. He wants live and as his human momma it is my job to make sure that he gets what he wants regardless of why people are against feeding live.
