    Thanks! I'll tell her. I just checked on Sherbert and she's doing great! She was walking around in the cocohut! Do you think she's almost ready to come out?

    The food website is awesome!

    I know it's hard to wait, you'll see her out when she's ready! :) She'll be out walking around like normal, then you can take her out of her little prison lol. :D

    I saw her out of the coco hut! :D :) !!!!! She was sitting down against the cd case, probably sleeping. But now I think she is trying to get back in. She's like half in, half out. Do you think I can take out the cd cases now?

    If she's eaten about all of her exo, and is moving around normally and looks like she's regained some of her color, I'd say turn her loose. :) You might give her a tiny dip (not a bath) in the fresh water dish just before you change it so she will "smell" more like the other hermies again. :)

    Thank you!!! She's digging right now. I hope I'm not stressing her too much. :( I'm, so proud of Sherbert! :) She is such an amazing, strong little girl!

    Thanks! I told my mom this and we got the shrimp today at Shop Rite! Ocean really seemed to like it but the others haven't tried it yet.

    The others will check it out the next time you serve it. Just don't give it to them every day.
