First of all let me say hello! Its been a very long time since ive posted on here and im sure no one remembers me haha. Anyway I thought before my question I would give you a quick update. When I first created this account, I owned a ball python, Nagini, and a leopard gecko, Amelia, both of which very sadly passed away. I had received Nagini from petco, and Amelia from Backwater Reptiles. Both were sick upon me getting them. For Nagini I tried to help, but she had been sick when i bought her as Petco has a bad rep of not taking very good care of their animals. As for Amelia, I got her from Backwater Reptiles, which has a VERY bad rep. Unfortunately, I made a rookie mistake and went with the purchase without doing my research of that provider. She died shortly after, and I received no emails from the founder of Backwater Reptiles. I loved them both and tried to help them. It was very sad but that was almost 2 years ago. ANYWAY, as of now, I have only a ball python Dale, who I purchased from Boas and Balls, (Im not sure if they are still running). He is doing GREAT, he is active and moving around and eating great. I've had him for about a year and a half and I love him, he is my pal So theres my update, and now for my question; a rather silly one. So I feed him two small rats each feeding day because thats the only thing they sell near me, now he ate one, but I have a kitty who got to the other one. It was in a baggie but there are two puncture holes near the head which im assuming is where my kitty bit into it. The small rat also started bleeding. I found it behind a chair after one night. Now I'm very skeptical of still using it and I was not going to unless you guys said nothing would be wrong with it. So is it safe for Dale or should I toss it? Sorry for the long post and I am sorry if it is a little confusing! Thanks guys, it feels good to be back.
