Pets are the best! Not sure if I told everyone, but a few months back, I lost my best turtle... which is to say that of all my turtles, whom I love dearly, he's the only one that chases after me and goes bonkers with excitement when Im around, when I talk, and especially when I play bass!
I was heart broken when he escaped because I absent mindedly left his house open, and in the middle of 14 acres of woods, filled with stray cats and racoons, far from any water, during a 100 degree, month long drought, what chance of survival did an aquatic turtle have?
I wandered the woods all night, every night, for weeks, calling his name and looking for him... trapping the cats and racoons so that they wouldnt find him, sometimes until 3am.
Then last week, a series of incredible coincidences and circumstances, led me to a portion of my yard that I have never been, and while working, I looked down and there he was!
He was so much smaller, dark as night, covered in cob webs, slime, mildew, and grime, but he's home!
Animals are awesome, and I love ensuring that they have the best life possible, during thir time here on Earth... even the mice and bugs.
People, on the other hand, can suck my dick and eat my charcoal
I really don't talk about it much on the internet, but like my Grandfather used to say, dont ever kill anyone unless they deserve it.It's really awesome that you've adjusted so well to other folks now. IIRC you used to just shoot them and bury their bodies in a swamp.
