The other day I decided to have some arts and crafts time with Miyuki. Yes, with my Leopard gecko! A bit strange, I know. But I've been meaning, for quite awhile now, to take prints of Miyuki's and Aurora's paws. Back in 2013 I took prints of Haku's paws, and I've really treasured them since he passed away last September. I thought it'd be nice to have prints from my gecko girls too.
I decided to go with pink for Miyuki's prints. It's always kind of been 'her color'. When she hatched she was a bright bubble gum pink color, and ever since then I've been using the color pink for her.
The paint is non-toxic, of course! I just put a bit of it on one front and one back paw, and let her walk over a piece of paper. Most of the paint wore off as she walked around, but after we were done I cleaned her feet with a wet cloth.
Here's a new picture of my little artist. She's doing well. The geckos are definitely enjoying the hot weather we've been having lately.
I'm glad I finally got Miyuki's prints. After they dried I tucked them away in my filing cabinet. Hopefully it will be a very long time before I'll ever need them for Miyuki's memorial. Making them with her, as it was with Haku, will always be a happy memory. Comment below! What fun activities have you done with your pet recently?
