>Oh My! Don't know what to say! As I have yet to serve up mealy worms: I just can't do it!! Of course Rain does'nt need them. I give her a bit of chicken and bones now and again. If Moths got in her cage, she could have at them! But other than ants, no visiters!! Rain, right now, is in "attack mode" as far as bothering her or her "boy-friend" goes.!! Once again, very moody and building nests again!! She still licks and grooms when I hold her; but just don't invade her area!! She gets very angry when I am "outside" the wire and attacks!!; but once I reach in or take her out in the Bathroom, she is her lovely little self!!! Try to understand? Not me! I just go with the flo! Am I owned? I think so!! Last night when I went in to my little Princess' room
>to put her in her cage she was hanging on her wall
>quilt looking special. I saw there were several little
>moths flying about. My 1st thought was 'uh oh, moths'
>but then I realized why little one looked so special.
>She was trying to catch the moths. :-) Her catching
>technique needed some improvement so I started batting
>at the fast flying moths trying to stun one so I could
>get it. Pootie immediately realized what I was doing
>(so smart!) and jumped to me. We had a blast
>together, catching moths by various methods. I was
>able to catch them in my cupped hand, then open my
>hands a crack for her to stick her head in and 'go
>fishing'. I killed a couple of them and scraped them
>off the wall which she gobbled up and licked the moth
>stuff off my fingers, but I really wanted her to have
>live ones so she could feel like she was the one
>catching them. She rode my wrist and arm while I
>followed a moth around the room until it got close to

>& grab it, quickly stuffing it in her excited little

>fun !! At one point I couldn't find any for a minute
>or two and she started searching me, checking under my

>then checking my mouth (did squammy eat any of my

>first time I was happy to find little moths in my

>and go to work, I work 3rd shift. So instead of
>putting Poots in her cage I left her out in case she
>wanted to have some more fun).
