I did a bad thing today. I came home with a mouse.
I had sworn myself off of rodents, because as much as I love them, my mom hates them, and since I still live at home, I try to respect her, within reason, lol.
But today, I was at work, and I guess someone had brought in a mouse that they didn't want anymore. Well, the store put HIM in with the female mice (normally when someone surrenders a pet, they set up a cage in the front of the store and try to adopt it out, NEVER put them in with their own stock! this store was weird.) Anyways, this guy is huge, almost as big as a small rat. I noticed him when one of the employees brought another one over to show her the "Godzilla mouse". They pointed out that it was a boy, and didn't belong with the girls, and said he was free, so I said I'd take him.
I named him Hank. He's pretty sweet. He hates being picked up, but is totally calm once he's in my hand. His tail is kind of crooked, and he's got some healing cuts on him, most likely from fighting with another boy. I'd like to see the size of the mouse that dared to pick on this guy!
I'll get pics up within the week.
