    Mixing substrates

    So I’ve just made T a larger enclosure and to fill it I’ve got 6 bricks of coco and coir but it’s going to take a lot more which might be a little too pricey I thought I could maybe mix it with other things and I remember reading something about Timothy hay so I bought 2 bags of it and I’ve...

    Doris Day RIP

    I know I just assume once people have hit 90 that they’re going to live forever, my great grandad is 91 and still working and I believe he’s a vampire because he looks great

    Doris Day RIP

    Are these eye drops any good?

    I’ve just purchased these eye drops as T has just opened his eye properly! His eye has a bit of discharge and the eye drops I already use are just drying his eye closed so I thought I’d try something else There’s not a lot of instruction which makes me a little anxious about using it
