Re: Iggy tried to bite me!!
- View SourceThanks for all the info. I think some people on this list
misunderstood me. I am going to re read the article about behavior and
dislodging. I would not have done anything without being sure it was
correct. I would never tear skin off. I only remove skin which is
already disconnected and don't even get very close to the still
connected parts. I didn't mean to upset or worry anyone.
I petted him yesterday. I watched his body language carefully and he
was his relaxed old self again. I think before I did not pay attention
to his body language and he did want to be left alone to eat his meal
and definately did not want my hand around his eye. I have noticed the
things on his back legs are ggetting larger, Therefor,I do beleive he
is a he but not positive. Those femoral pores were small and flat now
they have spikes like protrusions pointing toward his belly.
I didn't really pick an ig for a pet. He lived in a motorcycle shop I
used to work at. They went out of business and his owner was going to
give him away. He lived in a glass display case and ate weeds from the
parking lot. He had no humidity and a regular light bulb.Iggy and his
old owner got along great he was very good with him and they were
actually buddies but didn't understand about his care. I was afraid of
who he would end up with because of the crowd who hung out there. I was
afraid he would end up with someone who would consider it funny to get
Iggy high(you know the good ol boy, mullet sporting, cock fighting type)
or the Cheech and Chong Type. (No offence to mullet wearers) He may
have ended up in a wonderful home but I read the stats and that was not
My home is not the best home he could have because I have too many
other animals. He don't get the attention he should but he gets good
care and some attention several times a day.I love him and I am very
attached to him but If someone could give him a life (like Mike or
Bookie for instance)I would. (with a promise of updates) give him up.I
have 5 inside dogs ages 13 to 6 and 7 inside birds, ages 21 to 5. I
have had them since they either hatched (the 5 yr old) till the 13 yr
old dog who I got at 6 weeks. Also a turtle and Iggy. Uotside I have 2
horses, a donkey, 17 duck 3 chickens and more dogs and cats which were
rescues mostly. Not to mention a husband and 2 grandaughters, a 15
month old (into everything) anda 4 month old. here on a regular basis.
I am also in the process of opening a business.
Now that I have gotten to know an IG I would love to have a free
roaming Ig just lounge around with me. They are remarkable animals and
have so much more intelligence and personality then I would have
My arms have already been shredded several times, I don't pay a lot of
attention to that but a little worried about a bite.
Thanks again I will keep posting his progress. Angie
