Hiya Snakeslady,
How true! It is a shame that it even has to be considered but that's an unfortunate part of life.
For some odd reason its taken a long time to get to your website but I fianlly made it! Wow!! Emotion: surprise)

Well, I'm curious to know what those reasons are or could be. fr0glet

If someone needed a new home for a healthy reptile that I happen to be interested in, I'd take it. I personally would not even consider taking a sick, possibly dying one. It's hard enough to take care of healty animals; I don't need someone else's problems, which could get passed on to my animals. And I wouldn't take just ANY old reptile that needed a home. It would have to be one that I want to keep. I'm not the Saint of Unwanted Herps, have no desire to be, and doubt too many others are interested either. I'm glad for the animals' sakes that there are a few of you, but don't put the rest of us down because we're not like you.

I don't think that's what J posted about.

That's a different type of "rehoming" altogether. Is that what's being discussed here? I honestly don't know. Obviously my experience is quite different from that, as I have a society behind me, a pool of potential adoptive families and a pool of money to pay vet bills with. I recognize the difference.

Hey Cindy, I'm a unique person and I know it. Humans are all equals on this planet and I know that too. I don't consider myself a Saint of Unwanted Herps and I don't appreciate you making me out to be someone who DOES consider myself to be that. I too turn down herps that are beyond my care or housing abilities. Moreso, I turn down herps that are within my scope of care and maybe even housing, because I have no desire to interact with the animal and maintain its environment knowing my current commitment level. Sliders, for example.
My problem with J's post was mostly that it sounded like a shopping trip, even throwing in the comment re: yay! color morph! He expressed he had decided to take in unwanted herps. He didn't proclaim any sainthood and neither do it. I didn't put him down for not being a saint. I recognize my obvious bias. That's not going to stop me from expressing my opinion about a post that happens to strike a nerve with me.

Ah, this page I know. I thought a real site (with several pages, buttons, pics and so on).
