Hi peeps, I suspect I'm in for a beating here but am going to ask your opinions anyway. My husband has an adult corn snake called Gabriel. I don't hate it but I really wish we didn't have it in our house at all. He said recently that I can sell it and the custom built vivarum if I want. Part of me worries that it goes to someone that will not look after it properly and I'm not sure someone's home could be vetted for suitability like it would for a cat. (I would never rehome one of my beloved cats). I would much rather he sold it and im sure he will if I insist. It does have a negative impact on my life. He's had it since it was a worm (bought when we moved in together 5 years ago) and it does have a sort of sweet face. He looks after it well usually but we recently bought a small freezer for the shed and I made him keep the young rats out there meaning he wasn't fed as often as usual. I've also had to go out and buy rats because there were none left and felt bad for it not having been fed. My husband also forgets to replace the vivarium light meaning he has a heat mat only for long periods of time - there's no light on today. He is cleaned regularily but my husband complains he doesn't have enough time to clean him. Since we got our cats 3 years ago, poor Gabriel is rarely handled although he is still friendly and has never struck at us. We have a 5 month old baby and I have postnatal depression which manifests in me worrying and having anxiety about E's health and I worry about the possibility of her getting salmonella somehow from the snake. My best friend is afraid of snakes and lives in North Yorkshire. She tried to stay at my house but got no sleep for worrying about it being downstairs and cried a lot. I'm in Surrey and it means I don't get to see my best mate unless I travel up to her. She has a real phobia! The vivarium is in my living room and there's no where else it can go. We could just maintain status quo and keep him or I could push to re-home him. My husband wouldn't hold it against me but probably would refer to it in the heat of a humdinger of an arguement I'm sure. Would Gabrial be better off with someone else? Would it be better for me?
