Hey guys! I checked my email a second ago, and I had one from DHL saying my octo from octopets is on the way! So I guess they have found a different supplier or something? Either way, I guess they aren't backordered anymore!:party::octopus:

Talked to Jim in person he said No Octos now didnt ship any in the last several days and wont for 3 more weeks.
better check with Jim and see what the deal is
you might have a bogus ship confirmation

That's too bad, my hopes were up for a moment!

I didn't realize that Octopets ships with DHL, I just assumed they used FedEx.

My octo arrived today!! So far he has been a curious little guy! He has hung out in his plastic tubing and played in the bubbles in the bubble wall.
I don't know how I recieved him if Jim didn't ship him, but he is here and I am grateful.:tentacle:

Hehe I am being totally serious Dan! I have the little guy a mere 3 feet from me as we speak :smile:

Unfortunately I wasn't here for the acclimation, I was at work, but I left my boyfriend detailed acclimation instructions which I am assuming he followed hehe. He said that he was worried about the octo (no name yet) at first because he didn't move once out of the bag, but he perked up after a few minutes.

Clowny, he is a bimac.
