Good news this morning
The Grey one actually came to me to get her yogurt drop!
I just held it through the bars before I was on my way out for work and she came up and grabbed it and sat by me and ate it. I didn't try to open the door or anything. I was super excited.
The White one on the other hand... she was crabbing right away from inside her pouch (I'm not even sure how she knew I was there...I was super quiet). So when she started crabbing I held a yogurt drop again through the bars over her pouch. She came flying up, I think she intended on biting me but got a mouth full of yogurt drop instead and was content to pull that back in her pouch and eat it. I chalk that up to a win lol. No blood drawn is a +1 in my book.
Its such an emotional roller coaster. One day I'll feel the worse, nearly in tears, because I feel like I'm doing all I can to help them love me (even if that means leaving them alone) and it seems to do no good. But then it's these days that I'm soaring above the clouds with happiness at one of them taking a yogurt drop. lol.
Now...I just need to sort out their names. I'm trying to think of something unique, perhaps something a bit nerdy. My other animals I've named from Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis..I also love Star Trek, Star Wars, obviously the Stargate's, anything Marvel, love playing World of Warcraft, pretty much anything fantasy and scifi - I know, probably weird for someone that is 37 lol.
My current pets are named:
African Grey = Scooty
Great Dane = Ronin
Shepherd/Husky Mix = Saber
PitBull = Titan
Ferret = Ka'Tesh
Cat = Seti
I have named my saltwater fish too but I won't list them all here lol.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Their photo's are in my first post in this thread
