My wife and I are moving to Los Angeles later this year and have to down size our 5 bedroom house into a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. So after 10 years of ownership we made the difficult decision to re-home Fred, my almost 30 year old RES. Luckily my wife's cousin, is an experienced reptile owner (mostly snakes), agreed to take Fred in.

Yesterday we moved him into his new home. His 3 kids were very excited:

Even though I'm no longer an RES owner I will still be here on the forum helping when ever I can.

Agreed!

Best of luck in CA. Think of us poor Chicagoans next February.

Good luck with the move! Fred will be missed, but I will look forward to you popping in when you can.

I'm so sorry you had to rehome your baby. That must have been difficult. I can't imagine not having my boy, Jade. I really appreciate you sticking around the site to help those of us with less knowledge, though!
