  3. General Rodent Chat
    My dad doesn't like having pets in the house; it's alright with him if they're outside. (ex. my dog and cat, my only 2 pets). What he doesn't like, though, is if there is a domesticated animal in the house. How freaky is that?!?!?! My mom doesn't mind having small pets in the house (rodents...
