Need advice for my Adenium Obesum

Hi, I am not sure if Desert Rose plants are bonsai or succulent, but I need some advice for my plant.
I absolutely love this plant, mostly because I bought it from a man at the farmer's market who was so passionate about plants and recently passed away. I also just really love Desert Rose plants. My plant has had its ups and downs, and about a year ago I cut a few of its limbs off in hopes that it would fatten up at the bottom. It has responded very well to plant food in the past (I read that Desert Roses generally do), but has grown these skinny limbs off of the places where I pruned it. It has never bloomed and I keep it in a sun room in the summer time where it thrives. Should I prune it again? Any advice is greatly appreciated! :)

kelli - rather than the 'bonsai forum' I would suggest trying the forum for 'cactus & succulents'. You would probably find more experienced helpers there.
