Okay, so as some of you already know, I got my pet tarantula recently and so far, she seems to be settling just fine. But seeing as she's my first tarantula, and certainly this is my first time as an owner to my very own pet, this kind of area is pretty new to me. I know, I've had dogs and cats before, so having a pet isn't that new, but it was normally my parents who kept an eye on their behaviours and if whatnot. So Sirius, Gromit and Willow weren't exactly my dogs and Cleo and Isis weren't really my cats. They all belonged to the whole family, but it wasn't really up to me to take care of them as much as it was my parents. But because Katniss is my spider, technically this is my first time keeping my own pet, so naturally, I'll be getting anxious over even the slightest abnormalities with her. Or at least I think they are. Nothing seems to be wrong with her at the moment, but a few times, I've already had my concerns when say she moves in a slightly funny way or something. I've been going to my dad about these concerns, but he's getting annoyed with he doing this all the time, and told me to go look up a reliable website for caring for a tarantula and how to properly detect symptoms of anything that might be wrong with her (knowing the internet today, finding a reliable source can be pretty hard. :roll:). I had been doing my research on how to care for a pet tarantula before getting her, but I guess because this is an animal I don't really know that much about, I'm gonna be unsure of whether she's doing all right sometimes.

So if any of you watchers of mine have any experience on keeping and caring for a tarantula, would you be willing to fill me in on any uncertainties I may have about mine at any times and give me advise on what I need to do or stop doing or whatever. I really do want to try my best to be a good owner. I know she's a spider, and I know I've only had her for a few days, but she's still my pet and I still care about her and I still want to give her the best treatment I can offer. So if any of you have or have had a tarantula before and therefore know a great deal about them, could you please be willing to give me some helpful advise now and then on how to care for mine? Because I would really appreciate it. :heart:

Other information you need to know about me:-
:bulletred: I have Asperger's Syndrome.
:bulletorange: I am a HUGE fan of the following: Evanescence, The Great Mouse Detective, The Pirates! Band of Misfits, The Phantom of the Opera, The Hunger Games, Les Misérables, An American Werewolf in London, Wallace and Gromit, Billy Connolly, Final Fantasy, Still Game, Sherlock Holmes and Monty Python.
:bulletyellow: Music wise, my favourite genre is Rock/Metal, though I'll pretty much listen to everything, except rap or country.
:bulletgreen: I am hoping one day to be a musical theatre actress and my ultimate dream role is either Christine Daaé from Andrew Lloyd Webber's The Phantom of the Opera or at least one of the three main girls from Les Misérables (Fantine, Eponine or Cosette). :heart: :D
:bulletblue: I mainly just write fanfics and poems and upload photographs here to dA, now that I have started practicing drawing, I will also upload the odd picture now and then. ;)
:bulletpurple: I am a hopeless romantic and am a complete sucker for lovey-dovey things. I am also hoping one day to get a lovely boyfriend of my own, but so far, I haven't been quite so lucky, and probably never will be. :(
:bulletpink: I can be a bit of a drama queen at times, so if you catch me overreacting to something, even slightly, just tell me and I will attempt to calm down. :XD:
:bulletred: Generally, I'm a kind, polite, friendly person, though I can be a total, total bitch if you get on my bad side! Treat me with respect, and I will treat you with respect back.
:bulletorange: I care deeply for my friends and family, so much so that I won't hesitate to stick up for them. So if I catch you being rude to any of my friends here, you'll be hearing from me.
:bulletyellow: Although I am a proud Atheist, I am absolutely fine with other people having different religious views from me. I won't try to shove my opinions down your throat, so don't you try it with me!
:bulletgreen: Although I am straight, I am a strong supporter of LGBT rights and am fiercely against prejudice views such as homophobia, racism, sexism, etc., and I will NOT tolerate comments expressing such views anywhere on my profile, journals or on any of my deviations. Please keep your nasty, bigoted little comments to yourself when speaking with me, or I will NOT be a happy bunny!
:bulletblue: I'm also strongly against abuse of all kinds to everyone and everything.
:bulletpurple: I am completely fine with people having different opinions from myself and I absolutely CANNOT stand drama, especially if it's caused by the stupidest little thing, like someone getting butthurt because someone's opinion differed from theirs on a specific subject.
:bulletpink: I also can't stand it when people try to bug me into doing things that I really don't want to do! If you ask if I'm going to do a specific thing, to which I say no, freakin' take that for an answer!
:bulletred: In general, I will NOT take any crap from anyone! If you cause me or any of my friends trouble, I will immediately block you, and even attempt to report you if you offend me enough.

And... that about covers it, I think. :XD:

Hi Iona! Wanted to let you know your GMD/POTO drawing/piccie arrived! Computer screens definitely don't do the colors justice; they're so vibrant! :wow: Anyway, it got here safely, and thank you! :D
BasilsAngelofMusic Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014
Yeah, I'm afraid I have to take pictures of my drawings on my phone since we don't have a scanner. :hmm: But yay, I'm glad it got there! :D
Brinatello Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2014
I've had to do that for quite a few years for the fansite. Without a scanner, I had to take photos of whatever I was sharing for that week. Same with artwork. It comes out all right and at times hardly noticeable! :XD:
