Where is Annie kept? Inside or outside? Where are you located?

What is her typical diet? How about 'toys' (wood to chew and destroy)?

Do these black and white things move? If there's any way to get me a good clear picture of what you're seeing, please try.

I'm signing off for the night but will be back in the a.m..

Please do not use any products on her. They are not healthy no matter what the packaging or sales clerk says. We'll get through this together ok?

Expert:  S. August Abbott, CAS replied 22 days ago.

I'm glad she's in a roomy cage and free to come and go; however, still need more information. Remember, you can see, I can't. You have to be my eyes ok?

So she only eats what you eat and some fruit, right? I need to know what you eat then.

And what kind of fruit she most of.

Do these black and white things move? If there's any way to get me a good clear picture of what you're seeing, please try.
