Hi, Ashley here- if anyone is going to their studio space in 203(?) over spring break can you PLEASE FEED WINSTON. I completly forgot about him being left alone for near 2 weeks. His food is next to his tank- 2 pinches of flakes would be sufficent. Do not make a special trip but if your there anyway I'd be grateful. If you are going there you can email me at Dawl1003@aol.com to let know or just sprinkle him some food and I'll see you all after break. Thanks, Ashley.
