Re: she's suddenly really aggressive

ok everyone, she's back to normal just as fast as she was evil! when should i expect this to happen again??? i know it's twice a year, but i'm not clear on what times of the year to expect it. i was really worried there for a bit that she'd never turn back to normal!

Re: she's suddenly really aggressive

Re: General Question About Behavior...

i think some flyers will pee anywhere they want. and if you give them acorns, their pee will be quite potent :)
shylo likes to pee where ever... i've been trying to 'potty train' her for months.

Re: Need to loose weight

my batman had a huge sweet tooth and was definitely over weight. she wouldn't eat her vegetables, and only ate nuts. some nights i would take away her nuts and her staple diet (since she just ate the seeds and nuts out of that), and would only give her vegetables.
