Xion (she-on)
So I've always been wondering how old Xion is. This has only gotten more confusing as the vet keeps changing her age on records (6 months to 9 months, no measuring or weighing)

She was rescued from a garage, so nobody was able to tell me when they got her or how old she is.
She was probably in there for at least a month, though my mom says 3?

Here's how she looked when I adopted her at around 11 inches, and here's her now at 15.

So the timeline is:
September - 11"
December - 13.5"
February - 15"
(6 months)

I unfortunately don't have a scale that can weigh in grams.
Trying to figure this out myself confuses me since the minimum she could be is 7 months, but that would imply she was abandoned immediately and sold underage. But she only seems to be long enough to be 8 months, which STILL implies she was abandoned quickly. Why would anyone do that?!

Any help would be appreciated!!

I guessed 9 months because it looks like she had grown slowly for 4 months before you got her judging by how she looks very lean in the original picture but no rounded baby head and has a longish tail. So if you've had her for 5 months that takes you to 9 months old. Of course that's just a guess and she can be a little bit older or younger.

Regardless of her age she's lucky you found her. She is very pretty to.

Hello,

She looks beautiful! I agree with AHBD, she doesn't have as much of a baby face so her bone structure
is maturing.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
