I think you should rethink your pet selection... but that's just me.

1. Step out your front door
2. Turn left and walk about 10 feet.
3. Come in
4. You can hang out with my hairless rat, Templeton anytime you like.


I got Temp for Christmas and he's honestly the best pet I've ever had, he's super cute, really easy to take care of and really really friendly.

well she probably wouldn't make it anyways. Sounds like it would be a waste of money.

Although I wouldnt step on her...I don't know if I could ever end the life of any pet. Im torn on the whole "put them to sleep and out of their misery" thing.

everyone I have ever told this story to has called us (my mom and I) dumb
but I dont care

this is kind of gross, but kind of heartwarming?
I had a hamster in the 12th grade, a moron friend of mine bought it and refused to take care of it (his roomates and him tried to hotbox the little ball he ran around in!). Anyway, one his ass fell out.
I swear
No lie.
It just fell out.
I really didn't know what to do and just cried a lot.
My mom took him to the vet who put his ass back in
it fell out again
so they decided to do hamster SURGERY (again, no lie)
They put little Gino "under" stuffed his ass back in and sewed it shut.
I guess the vet hoped it would stay in and they would take the stitches out after the weekend (I dont understand the logic either)
Anyway, Gino died the next day. My mom paid for the entire process, it ended up being a couple hundred dollars.

Mum and I are both animal lovers though, so it seemed worth it.

When you say "ass fell out" do you mean some kind of hamster rectal prolapse?

I think thats awesome. I know I would pay whatever it took to make my kitties better. I would go in the poor house to keep them safe and healthy.
