Friday was my last day of testing, and I don't have to go back to school until the 23rd for Graduation Practice, and then Graduation. It sucks we don't get our diplomas when we graduate; we have to wait until the last day of school. :/ I have been told by my friends they will be mailing report cards if we aren't there the day they hand them out, but you have to physically pick up your diplomas. I guess I'll find out on Graduation Day.
Another bit of news: I got Bud to take a f/t rat. I did use some sneaky tricks, though. I bought five live mice for him, and waited for him to kill and start eating one of them. I then put the head of the rat up to the back end of the mouse he was eating, bringing it nearer to his mouth as he swallowed the mouse. He got the mouse down and continued on eating the rat without even realizing. XD (I learned this trick on a reptile forum I'm a member of). I had also given one of the male rats to Cloud as fresh-killed, but I had misjudged its size. I never really put them next to each other as it would be a handful, and I would most likely get bit by one or both of them. I don't have any way to weigh them, either, so I have to eyeball it. Turns out it was more of a jumbo-sized rat than a large rat, so he couldn't take it. He spat it out and I'm storing it in the freezer until he's big enough, and I'll buy a large rat for him in the next few days.
Tried to give Cloud his rat today. He refused a meal again. :/ I haven't changed his temps or humidity, or anything beyond replacing his hides, which doesn't normally put him off of feeding. I'm hoping it's either: 1) He has to be in the glass tank to get in feeding mode or 2) He's just a bit stressed from the vet visit. I'll have my mom bring his feeding tank and I'll try again tomorrow. I hope it's not the tank, because I won't be able to feed him in it much longer, which is why I'm trying to feed him in his tub now. If he still doesn't take it, I'll try Friday. (Speaking of the vet, I think they must have read the weight wrong or I wrote it down wrong, because he was weighed today at 3 lbs 13 oz., unless he's only gained 13 oz. for another 1 ft of length....)
