Lost and Found BRB

I took my female BRB to a friend's house to have her checked out, as my male had just died of unknown causes. He wasn't even showing signs of sickness, just one morning he was dead. Anyway, while she was at my friend's house, his dog pulled her off the counter (she was in a burlap sack). We took her away, but apparently he'd chewed a bit of a hole in the sack. We know this now because when I got her back home and set her on the couch, she was gone in about five minutes, having pushed and widened the hole.

It's very cold in my apartment, and I don't have heat (lots of lamps, though!) so I was very worried about how she was going to fare. It's been getting very cold everynight. I did all the tricks I could think of that didn't involve actively showing a snake loose in the house. My friend is visiting me from overseas and is very phobic of my snakes, so I couldn't let on to her that one had actually escaped.

Anyway, two nights ago I was going through blankets to give to some people who were staying over, and there she was! Of course my closet is the warmest part of my home that is secluded, but she was still like an icicle when I picked her up. Poor baby. Heated her up and she ate a nice small rat this morning.

She was gone for just over a week, so don't give up if you know the snake is still probably in the house! I also had a rosy rat snake that was loose for the better part of a month before I found her in my bathtub (looking for water). I feel so lucky that I haven't permenantly lost any of my lovelies!
