I found a bat on the ground today. It was really cute .
I put it in a tree and it was gone this evening.

Thanks! That's about all I could think of, too....StarGirl said:Blankets around and over your tank. Leave it to 2020 to have dual hurricanes
I don’t know if this would work, and I guess it also depends how long the power would be out, but maybe putting hand warmers around the tank might work temporarily??Rose of Sharon said:
I have heard of that, but do you know where I could get those? I really need to stock up because stuff like this always happens here....julifhy said:I don’t know if this would work, and I guess it also depends how long the power would be out, but maybe putting hand warmers around the tank might work temporarily??
I'm Louisiana.....I can definitely go looking for some, if the weather permits, that is. Six to 8 inches of rain predicted with 75 mph winds...StarGirl said:We have hand warmers in every store here in Michigan...lol Are you in Texas? My guess would probably be a sporting goods store maybe?
You can get them at target or any sporting storeRose of Sharon said:I have heard of that, but do you know where I could get those? I really need to stock up because stuff like this always happens here....
Be safe!Rose of Sharon said:Hi everyone,
Looks like we are in for it for the next 3 to 5 days!!!! Don't know how we are going to keep the bettas warm if we lose electricity, which we always do. If anyone has an idea, I would love to hear it!
Hurricanes and covid..... ....and a sick betta....
Good luck to you! Stay safe! I have to check in with our nephew in New Orleans. In the French Quarter actually. Wonder if they are evacuating?Rose of Sharon said:I'm Louisiana.....I can definitely go looking for some, if the weather permits, that is. Six to 8 inches of rain predicted with 75 mph winds...
Keep us in your thoughts! The fun starts tomorrow!
You could name her Potatojulifhy said:I need name ideas
So far these are the ideas I have:
Lychee, Cocoa, Marshmallow, Cookie, or maybe M&M?
Her mom was a rescue and I got to adopt her yesterday. She’s pretty scared being in a new place I’m setting her cage up today, so hopefully she’ll feel better then. I’m kind of worried she won’t feel at home without another guinea pig though. I guess I’ll see how it goes.
We did get a heavy duty battery back up, but it won't last a long time. Luckily, today was not so bad. The first storm, Marco, isn't so bad....just rain. It's the next one, Laura, that is supposed to be rough.julifhy said:You can get them at target or any sporting store
Another idea is a backup generator. Maybe a solar power one for a really long term situation? Idk if solar powered ones exist though lol. They can also be pretty expensive though.
Also, a usb air pump for filters would work well. They should make usb heaters too lol.
Thanks, looks better than the one we have, which is a broken down piece of junk!!!Dunk2 said:Be safe!
Probably too late for you to get it now, but I bought one of these a few years ago. Works awesome to keep the tanks going in a power outage.
Thanks! That's good to know!david1978 said:Eh I lost power for 4 days in the winter. House dropped to 40. The big betta tank to 50. I just quit feeding them. Other then lethargic till itcwas over no harm done.
They evacuated a few of the lower parishes, but not N.O. I don't know if that will be the case with Laura, though....Basil said:Good luck to you! Stay safe! I have to check in with our nephew in New Orleans. In the French Quarter actually. Wonder if they are evacuating?
Looked at the pics, wish i could help, but I really don't know what to do about that.Rose of Sharon said:If anyone has a chance to look at my post about my sick betta, and you can help, I would appreciate it! Been trying to dose her with meds, but some of you might have a better idea. I just uploaded some new pics.

Hes shy. Lol. The dogs like her though. Who's this lady friend you speak of? Shes much more then that now.Basil said:And speaking of cats.....how is the Demon? Does she approve of the lady friend?
EEK now thats a bad day. My husband had a hematoma on his thigh they packed with gauze it was so nasty.david1978 said:Warning. Content has graphic detail.
Risks, benefits, outcomes, and expected complications, were explained in detail to the patient who expressed understanding and freely signed consent for. Patient was taken to the procedure room on a AGC6. A time-out was held and the procedure was verified. Patient was placed in the prone position. The area of fluctuance and abscess in the mid lower back measured 10 x 6 cm. 10 ml of 1% lidocaine with epinephrine was used for local anesthetics. An elliptical incision was made at the lower aspect of the pocket. Copious amounts of purulence fluid or pus expressed. The pocket was probed to ensure no septations. Strip gauze packing was placed in the cavity. Dressing was applied. Patient tolerated procedure well.
Hows that for an update. That was my day.
Im so happy for you guys! Even though you severely cheated on your picture.jinjerJOSH22 said:I guess update of my own...
I'm going to the Netherlands on Tuesday.
Where we'll wait for my Dog to get his passport and then pick him up in hopefully a months time. Things move fast, but being apart from her is unbearable. Originally I was going to wait that month and travel with Haru but we could barely go a few hours apart let alone a month. Most fish will be taken to the store but we'll set a few aside and pick them up with Harum since her Dad will likely drive to Wales in a van...
Anyway, things went well.....
Take care of yourself. It’s a strange world we’re living in right now.erinw347 said:It’s been awhile guys and you’ve barely gotten 30 pages???? Pathetic.
Anyways my own update: virtual school starts monday and I’m NOT excited, my friends and my boyfriend hate me, and I’m losing weight and I don’t know why. Oh well, I get to go to my LFS today.
