Hello Snack Lady, you will be cleaning my room today and giving me a pedicure. Thanks.
Gilbert’s room looks messy, but those towels on the ground are to help cushion the floor for his little legs. Gilbert has arthritis and a slight limp from his front right shoulder. We manage this with supplements and occasional anti-inflammatory/pain medications. Gilbert is over two year’s old! That’s old for an opossum! Life expectancy in the wild is 1-2 years, and 2-4 in captivity (4 being extremely lucky with good health and genes). Gilbert still has the same amazing personality, he’s just slowed down a lot, and enjoys longer naps. 💕(and he desperately needs his nails trimmed 💅🏼)
