Mr. Scrooge himself (my husband), who complained when I brought home the rat, and almost killed me when I brought home the cats, made the decision that the kids could have a snake.


He has a co-worker who was moving and unfortunately, he couldn’t take his baby ball python with him.  We have taken “Victor” in and decided to give him a home.  To say the boys are thrilled is an understatement.  Well…everyone but Nathan.  Nathan is not impressed.  Hopefully he will come around, but even if he doesn’t, Anthony and Gabriel will smother it with enough attention to keep him happy.

Victor is about one year old and as with most ball pythons, he seems pretty chill.  It’s a good pet for a house full of boys, dontcha think?  I am going to have to make a new category just for all of our pets!
