RIP: Taj

I've had Taj (a bold stripe/jungle leopard gecko) for several years, but had to have her put down today due to severe symptoms of what appears to be gout.

I was going to say some sappy stuff about the vet appt., the time I had with Taj, and so on, but I don't feel motivated to do that right now.  I've lost five leopard geckos in two years, so it's not exactly been the easiest of journeys.  Florida and I are certainly not best of friends these days...

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go watch The Pacific (for the fifth time) and maybe some bad TV while munching on a greasy burger, ice cream, and baked potatoes.  Because I'm feeling pretty low and I need heart-killing food in me...

For those curious, here's a picture of Taj from before her illness.  She was a beautiful lizard.

  1. I'm sorry to hear it. She was quite striking, I've never seen a leopard gecko. Hope the comfort food helps. (((hug)))

  2. Yeah. She was a cutie for sure. The comfort food just gave me gas, but I sort of expected that, so... *shrugs*
