My family doesn't approve of me having rats as pets, regardless of how happy they make me. My Mother is really going over the top with this. You know what she gave me for Christmas? (We exchanged gifts this morning due to travel plans.)
A sonic rodent repellent. Designed to drive rats crazy so they leave your house. Designed for people with rodent infestation.
Thanks Mom. Not that I care about gifts, but I know that was a personal jab at me.
Every time I talk to her, she makes it a point to talk about very gruesome and violent ways she wants my rats to die. I think I might be done with that woman. There is so much more to the situation that makes me really really want to speak to that woman ever again.
