It's All About The Red!!

Well today is our baby girl Katie Kats 13th Birthday
Well for her birthday she has had a whopping fish tank, hopefully she will be getting some tropical fish for it today! We need to get the water tested & if the bloke says its ok she can have some fish for it!!! I will take some pics for tomorrows post!

For those of you who have emailed me about my little boy Freddie....
He is a leopard gecko, no idea how old he is because he is a rescue, but they can live for 15-20 years!!! the record being 30!!!!  He will shed about every 4-5 weeks....he does eat his shedded skin (yuk!!) He is about 9" long don't think he will get any bigger...the way to tell wether he is healthy or not is down to the fat store in his tail! So the fatter his tail the healthier he is!! He eats baby grasshoppers about 3 aday, but once a week we have to feed him a pinkie (a new born baby mouse!!! mmmm
 not to keen on that, think Nige will be doing that one lol)

This was Freddie yesterday after he had finished shedding....having snuggles off his daddy!! lol ...His yellow colour is starting to show through now, soooo pretty!!

Right onto my card for Gingerloft where this fortnight we want to see the colour
