My name is Kay and I came across this site after reading "The Kind Diet." I'd always been interested in vegetarianism, but had no idea how to go about it in a house full of carnivores until my daughter-in-law brought me the book and it completely changed everything for me. I was amazed how versatile and simple meals could be! I haven't eaten meat in almost a year now, and I've never felt better in my life! I've been dealing with MS, arthritis, and high blood pressure for a good decade and in the last year, all symptoms are virtually gone!
I have a real soft spot in my heart for reptiles and I noticed there was an area here for animals, so I hope its okay that I share some of the stories of our reptiles with everyone. Almost all of our animals are rescues and we do alot of educational workshops to stress the importance of species and habitat conservation and promote responsible pet ownership. So many people get these beautiful animals, not realizing what kind of commitment they're making or with very little (if any) research.
Thank you for letting me be part of your community. I look forward to getting to know you all!
Currently I have two beardies and they are probably the most spoiled of all my pets...they even have sleeping pillows and blankets! I've had snakes and skinks as well and used to work for a reptile center that would take them to schools and such for education. I love changing people's perceptions of them!
We had a Beardie for 11 years. Her name was "Dharma" and she came to us as an adult. She was amazing! She had more personality than most humans I know! And she, too, had her own little bed, pillow and blanket she slept on every night. LOL We lost her this last January 28th. She was a very special little lady. We take our Savannah Monitor boys out frequently and they seem to really help ease folks into seeing that reptiles are actually nothing to be afraid of.
