    I cant afford to keep my water dragons any more and I have already found Jimmerty Cricket a home. However, I have not found Candy a home. Here are pics of her.

    I will price her for free and I will ship if needed. However, you must live in the U.S. because I will not ship over seas. If you are interested, call or text me at 832-247-2348. Or my email adress is pen.com@writing.com. Thank you.
    You MUST show me some how you have a cage properly set up. I am very strict about my animals finding homes that can properly care for them. You can do so via text, email, or in a reply to this forum.
    Also, once the animal is in your possesion, I want weekly updates on her for a month. I will only ship her once she has been eating solids for five days at minimum. I will notify you once I ship her and I want you to tell me when she arrives. I do these things for the safety of my animal.

    I wish you didn't have to! :( It is very hard to keep them now, especially with gas prices and having to always go get food. I will spread the word to people I know and see. I know you took good care of them and it's great you're trying to find a nice, responsible home. There might also be some reptile shelters around where you are.
    I really hope that something might happen so that you can keep her!

    Yeah, but I am trying to find a friend so I can still see her. I already sold Jimmety Cricket to a friend (he is still with me because I need to get him back on solids) so I can moniter her care of him more closely and still see him. If not, I will be heart broken, but Candy would still find a good home. I really just hope I win the lottery or something, but reptiles (nor a lot of things) dont come cheap. Btw, any one not taking care of Candy by the time I ship, I will either drive to you or call animal services.

    That's great you're trying to keep them close at least. It's nice you'll still get to see him and maybe, when you're more able to, you can get him back. Something still might hopefully come up where you can keep them, so keep your hopes up and look for opportunities :)

    Actually, I might not take them back. Their new owners spent money on them, they bothered taking care of them, they love them as much as I do. I would find it very rude to take them back once they put in their two cents worth. Plus, it is like breaking a promise (which I really try to keep). I would just be overwhelmed with guilt. I mean I feel guilty when killing an ant so I dont take guilt too well and I probably would end up giving them back to the owners I sold them to. I might have found a potential buyer for Candy, I dont know him but he lives close so I can still see her. Plus transporting her myself would be a lot less stressful than shipping and she doesnt take stress well. She would go off eating for the smallest amount of stress and I think it would be easier if I didnt have to ship her.

    Isn't Candy not currently eating? Did she ever start eating for you?

    She goes on and off it as if I were turning a light bulb on and off. Get her happy, she eats. Then when she gets stressed, no eating. Just lately she hasnt been eating at all for a while so I got worried. She is eating but it is like a pheonix worm a day.

    I NEED to find her a good home soon. I am broke stiff and I am being forced towards the options of a reptile shelter (which I really dont like to do. It makes me feel like I cant fix my own problems and thats the same reason why I dont like to borrow money, clothes, food, a place to sleep (we had cockroaches once and my mother couldnt stand the thought of them so we had to stay at our Aunt's for months until we moved out when it wasnt working. I dont know why but it made me feel dependent on every one else and I cant stand that feeling), anything that involves other people doing the work for me). I am getting desperate now and I have had ten phone calls, all changing their minds becuase they find a more appealing reptile (about three did to me (or three admited to me)) or because they cant afford one. Auttumn is picking Jimmety Cricket Sunday (I just realized it was spelled Jimeny, not Jimmety. Oh well, I am creative) and I would like Candy to be sold by then two because we HAVE to move out soon and I cant afford more vet biils, an extra cage, extra food, and extra stress. I would find it better to sell them as it would be less stressful for them than moving (we are moving a few hours out. I would run by and see Jimmety Cricket every month or so as well as my friend since me and her are really close). PLEASE some one say they could help me! I am not trying to force this on any one, rather than dont call me if you think I would let you keep her in a twenty gallon.
