rat

My roommate has a snake. It hasn’t eaten in about three months. It’s being fed right now.

This is a bit traumatising.

I thanked the rat for the meal and life it was giving to the snake.

Erm. Live rodent? Or, um, frozen?

It's what you take on when you have a carnivore for a pet. At least he's not one of these fscking morons who try to turn their dogs and cats into vegans.

Word.

I pity the poor mousies Niko decapitates right in front of me but it's his nature, I can't punish him for that.

Dang! Niko looks like a cat with ATTITUDE!

As you can see by this icon, not always. He can look like The Evil in person and one second later like a complete idiot.

Hey, is that a recent one of your boy? If so, he looks EXACTLY THE SAME as he did 2 years ago! Yeesh! How do boys do that?!

That pic was taken the weekend after we came back from our holidays, end of last August. But he hasn't changed since ^^ (That's the most recent pic I have of him, from our birthday party. You can check out my LJ picture account for more.)

His statement: "I didn't cut my hair and it didn't grow, I didn't change my glasses, I still wear the same clothes, so.. yeah!"

But that's not a "boys only thing". That's me three years ago and that's now :D

Yep - you're right... you haven't changed in 3 years either, from those pictures!

Me, I tend to radically change my hair every 3 months or so.

You and khamura are SOOOOOOOO adorable!!! *squeee*

It's quite simple: I just don't do anything at all. ;)

Though I do have a more varied selection of sarongs now.

*giggle* That is a great picture!! :-)

I also like the James Bond Villain Cat pic from the other comment ( the villain is my dad in that case *g*).

That's actually why Niko looks so grumpy in the icon, because he was sick of me running after him and taking all this pictures XD

Yeah, live. It was all cute and whiskery. And unsuspecting.

She won't eat frozen ones, and she needs to eat. I think we tend to forget where our own meat comes from as we get it nice and processed but it was alive once too. While the rat was cute and unsuspecting, it's best that it didn't know it was coming.

All that being said, I stayed downstairs for that part because I've had rats as pets and it would have made me sad to hear it.

Yes, hearing that was the hardest part. I think I've enough affinity with rats that even the brief glimpse I got through the mesh of the box was enough to develop some attachment.

It was quick, though, and its sacrifice is appreciated. If nothing else, I think that's important.

this is a lot more upsetting considering i JUST finished rereading 'mrs. frisby and the rats of NIMH'.

...my favourite children's book...!

are you going to kill me if i tell you that i'm writing a justin/mrs. frisby fic?

Yes.

Yes, I will.

If only figuratively.

;-)

Yeah, I'd forgotten about that. You keeping one of those draught excluders at the base of your door whne you are sleeping in there?

Considering that the smallest of the cats would win if there was a showdown between it and the snake, I'm not worried. It's not terribly big.

Then what's it doing getting rats? Shouldn't it be getting cute, little, not-even-fuzzy-yet baby mice?

Well, it is big enough for rats. Apparently mice are small enough, relatively, that it doesn't register them as food.

Hmm, anything that's big enough to *NOT* consider mice as food is a little larger than I think I would be comfortable with. But then I've never considered snakes as pets. Pets are companions. That's why I'm a cat person I think. Although, come to think of it, with that definition, I really should be a dog person, shouldn't I? Hmmmm.

What, are you serious? You mean to tell me that when I was over, I was with a very dangerous, hungry man-eating snake?!

AHH!

If by "dangerous" you mean "sluggish and bored", and by "man-eating" you mean "couldn't manage a human hand", then yes, yes you were.
