The Bond Is Real!
So I bought my Kiwi off of Craigslist, about five months ago. Her previous owners, from what I gathered, didn't treat her very well. They gave her to me, saying that they have had her for a year but named her within the last few weeks of having her. They also said that they gave her a bath every other night and that she loves baths. (In which her skin was extremely dry and flakey, and absolutely hated the bath when I give her one)
Anyways.. the thing that really got me was their lack of attention to her nutrition needs. They told me that they don't change the water but every few weeks because she doesn't drink that much and all they feed her is a small thing of hedgehog food (that she hated and tipped the bowl so she wouldn't eat) and 6 superworms a night. None in which would fufil her nutritional needs! Back to the drinking, when we got home with her, I watched momentarily at her trying to attack her water bottle (that was clogged with gross water and not giving any water... for who knows how long!)
I was angry and quickly gave her a bowl of water in which she gulped down!
Her cage also had no means of hiding or exercise.. to which I immediately bought her more stuff!
All in all, with all the treatment that I gathered from her previous owners, I knew it would be a while for her to bond with me. I get her out and snuggle her daily.. and tonight I finnaly saw the bondage!
My boyfriend and I were watching a movie, and he was holding her. She sneekily crawled off of him and onto my chest. In which she went right next to my hand and plopped down, resting her head on his thumb and would only huff when I stopped petting her back!
I love this little girl so much!
