She has gone to the bathroom a couple times since then. I've tried feeding her every couple of weeks but she just hasn't shown interest. Unfortunately he was feeding her live which means I've been stuck with an unwanted pet.

    Anyways, she weighed approximately 1900 grams when I got her, just weighed her today and she is down to about 1600 grams. She still looks healthy, still has a friendly disposition to her..

    I purchased a juvenile male about a month ago and he's been eating F/T mice and just stepped up to a F/T rat pup on Sunday. He has been eating like a champ.

    Guess i'll just keep offering to my girl every couple of weeks.
    Good luck with yours too. BPs really know how to drive conscientious owners crazy, don't they?

    Update:

    Last Sunday, April 04 was feeding day, Hal is back to eating, his fast didn't last long

    Still a no go for Eggroll, She refused again.......

    So for the TL DR people:

    Her last meal was a 62g rat on October 25, 2020

    Her last weighing was November 20, 2020 she weighed 1437 grams

    She has use the bathroom twice and shed once since then

    Her current weight is 1345 grams on April 07,2021

    So she's only down 92 grams so far, just a little over 1 meal (65g to 70g rat)

    So I guess this fast hasn't harmed her yet

    Hopefully she starts eating soon now that the weather has changed and the days have gotten longer
