I am afraid my new baby is going to die. He hasn't eaten at all in a month that I am aware of in spite of every trick I have tried. I am almost to the point where I think I should take the chance and hibernate him. I bought a small refrigerator and did some research on how to hibernate using a fridge. I am very scared to try this but he is not giving me much choice. He does seem to be rubbing his eyes when I soak him so hopefully he doesn't have some kind of respiratory infection. Thinking back I am not sure that the vendor at the show took very good care of him based on how he was presented at the show but I wanted one so badly I took the chance.

What should I do? Please help! I don't want to lose him but I know that he can't go on like this.

Linda
