My brain is all wired wrong;
But that's how it's been all along;

also, i went ahead and made a sideblog for Noodle and all Noodle-related things, since some people are not digging the heavy snake blogging. which is cool, i had been meaning to do it anyways.

the blog is here, for anyone who wants to follow

success

Noods took her shot like a trooper. no signs of aggression whatsoever. she squirmed, and the first time i tried to put the needle through she flexed and pushed it out, but the second time it went right in and she held relatively still.

this snake continues to prove herself to be the most docile thing, and yet people in my life are still afraid of her spontaneously becoming some bloodthirsty B-rate horror film creature and going on some murderous rampage and i just

i have to give Noodle her second shot (first on my own) today to treat her respiratory infection, and i’ll have to do it by myself because neither my aunt or uncle are willing to hold her because they’re scared she’s going to bite them when i give the injection.

i explained that she’s never been aggressive, outside of being hungry (which she’s not because i just fed her last night), and even when she was at the vet she didn’t get aggressive with anyone. she hates car rides, and she was stuck in one for over half an hour, she was man-handled, bathed, injected twice, and in a new place filled with other reptiles and birds… and she never got aggressive. i even held her when the vet tech gave her the first shot and showed me how to do it.

but still, they both made comments like “the damn thing better not bite me.” and with how hostile they said it, i just feel safer for her sake giving them alone. still, i’m paranoid that she’s going to squirm too much and i’m going to wind up hurting her as a result.

playtime with sammmmmmmiehiggs and Noodle! as always, Noodle’s gentle temperament earned the praises of others. i really am lucky to have such a sweet snake.

Noodle also displayed signs of trust for the first time, which really made me happy. i set her on the floor between Sam and i, expecting her to meander the room, but instead she came to me and curled up in my lap. a small gesture, sure, but it meant a lot to me.

also, just to clarify for those who might be concerned: i would not ever put Noodle around my shoulders unless another person was in the room, and i would not allow someone to put her there if i wasn’t present. constrictors are incredibly strong, and even one as small as Noodle requires all of my strength when she really has a grip on something.

they hold onto things for support and comfort, and if they aren’t ready to let something go, they squeeze very tightly around that something… which could wind up being a neck. accidents happen, and if another person wasn’t around to help me (or i wasn’t around to help them) then someone could easily get strangled just by the snake trying to hold on.

you really shouldn’t ever put a constrictor around your neck, but if you absolutely must then never do it when you’re alone.
