Squishy's little adventure...
Apparently after being cooped up in an aquarium for the last 5 years, Squishy decided that last night would be the perfect time to explore my bedroom.
I awoke to these weird little clumps of soggy fuzz everywhere, and I thought it was pretty odd because they weren't there when I went to bed. I was picking my stuff up so I could let Smudge out, and when I lifted up a pile of clothes.... I discovered a Squishy hiding under them!
Once I finished freaking out and realized that that thing was actually my frog, I scooped him up and put him back in his tank. He was completely covered in rabbit fur, but otherwise he seems OK! There is a 1" gap in the tank's lid for the filter, so I covered it so he can't get out again.
Do you guys think he'll be OK?! He is acting perfectly normal, but he must have fallen about 3 ft and I have no idea how long he was out! He was still moist when I found him, and he tried to escape when I picked him up so he still had energy left.
And why would he have jumped out? I know that it can be a sign of bad water quality, but I just did a water change a few days ago. I'm redecorating his tank and he got anew cave, but that's the only thing that is different.
I had been feeding him wax worms through the gap in the lid earlier yesterday, so could he have jumped out because he thought there was more food?

"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear.They are not brethen, they are not underlings; they are other nations caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendor and travail of the earth."
